I will agree to look over it and comment if you agree to edit your post and make it readable and reply saying you did it.

Ideally you want a blank line between each separate part.

Kinda like how I am writing these sentences here.

My beat attempt I'm using a smart phone and it is tough to edit large blocks of text

I would get a 2500k and an 1155 board instead of the FX-6100 and AM3+ board.

2x 560s is probably good enough, but I would go with 1 big card instead if I were you. Less configuration, less heat problems, less micro-stuttering.

PSU - Get a different brand like XFX. I had trouble verifying the maker of it and that is usually a bad thing.

Skip Windows Ultimate, get something less.

If you go with the 2500k and new motherboard, make sure the RAM is on its QVL.

Thank-you for the feedback but my order is on route!

I can't make changes now, just wondered how it should perform on battlefield 3!

My previous machine was a P4 3.4 HT dell dimension 9100 so this is a few generations newer for me. :-)

- Edit - NM

I think that the Bulldozer + x2 GTX 560s will do pretty well, but if you intend to max everything you may not 100% like the results.

The 6 core Bulldozer's extra cores may not be used optimally by the game which is why I suggested the gold standard 4 core instead.

That being said, it should do quite well. For the most part the hardware is ahead of the games right now if you can accept not having 4x AA.

That's good enough for me :-) thank-you!
Just need to get myself some games now..
