Hello, I am about to build my first Budget gaming pc :)  , and I wondered if it is good enough to run newer games at ultra [bf3]..

These are the parts:
-CPU: I3 2100 @ 3.10ghz
-MOBO: P8H61 M LE
-PSU: Sentey 500w
-GPU: EVGA GTX 560
-RAM: 4GB 1333mhz Corsair

I already have the HDD (Seagate 250gb 7200rpm)


Or i should get a i5 2500k , h67 motherboard (P8H67) and HD 6790 (dual fan version).

That won't get you ultra settings on anything sadly. Get an i5-2500k, ASUS P8Z68 MOBO, and 4 more GB of RAM.

Yes, that would work. Make sure that the video card is 560Ti (Fermi).

BF3, I'm afraid not. I'd recommend getting yourself a 2500k and a cheap p67 board. A third party cooler too.

As for the rest you could probably do better on your psu.
Everything else is absolutely fine. What brand of Corsair Memory are you going with?

Are you interested in Overclocking, this will help you achieve higher frame rates in Bf3.
If so, A third party cooler is essential, such as a Hyper 212+ or a Dark Rock Advanced.

Im getting 2 x 2gb Corsair XMS3 1333MHZ.. Or should i buy the 1600mhz 2 x 2gb xms3? Because i saw it is cheaper.. I just need 4gigs for now, but im probably add 4 more later...
These are the mobos that i found Asrock Extreme 4 p67 and the Gigabyte GA-Z68MX-UDH2-B3.. Im not living in the US, so there's not too many options..
