Don't get that motherboard. Intel motherboards are not very good for overclocking. Get either of these two if you want to stick with the P67 chipset. You might also consider Z68 chipset.

You might find that 500GB is a little bit small once you start installing a lot of games. Think about getting the 1TB model (it also has a larger cache).

Also, if you plan to overclock your processor, then you need a better CPU cooler. This one is really popular.

You didn't list a case in your build. If you don't already have one, the Antec 300 is very popular and it will hold your GPU.

As far as being able to play BF3 is concerned, you should be fine. Have a look at these charts to see what kind of performance you will be getting.

Thank you for replying, now about overclocking is it really necessary ? do you think i really need it ? and about that case you reccomended do you know if i could fit everything in it ? and does it have good ventilation ? ALSO should i go with the 750w or the 850 ? IS THE STUFF i listed compatible with each other ? HOW DID I DO picking out the parts ? PS SORRY about all the questions lol i talk to much im just really nervous pc stuff seems a bit overwhelming :D
