Hey i never built a pc before and dont know how to choose parts that are compatible and I am on a budget of around $800 to $850. I want a pc mainly for gaming especially one that can handle bf3 on atleast medium settings. I have a monitor, mouse, and keyboard. If anyone is kind enough to help select parts to keep it in my budget i would really appreciate it. I plan on ordering parts from newegg.com.
Thanks
