$600 gaming pc. Have I made the right choice

Hi with my Christmas money i am planning to build a decent gaming pc I have already perchesed the graphics card so it brings my budget down to around $550 ish My first question is that is a it a good deal to by two GTX 260 for $170 after looking for days at benchmarks of video cards I decided that it was a pretty good deal despite there age Secondly if someone could look over the parts list that i have created it would be great. So here it is:

PS: Games that I'll be playing
Battlefield 3
resolution 1920 x 1080

anything can be changed and I can use any site as long as it ships to Australia

CPU - Intel Core i3 2100 - $125

Motherboard - ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 Motherboard - $135

Case - Sharkoon T5 Value Black Case - $59

PSU - Antec High Current Gamer 520W Power Supply - $79

HDD - Western Digital Green 1TB - $109 (Why are they so expensive)

DVD - Samsung SH-222AB SATA DVDRW Drive - $22

RAM - Corsair 4GB DDR3 1333mhz - $22

GPU - 2x GTX 260 - $170

  1. That PSU i don't thik will keep the two 260gtx.
    If you don't have an K cpu you don't need an Z68 mobo. My advice is to try to buy this mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157246 and buy a real quad core I5 2300.
    In the place of those 2x 260 buy this video card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102948
  2. Two problems I have already bought the two 260's ( I can sell them but it would be easier not to ) and secondly I am in Australia so I can not buy from new egg.
