I have come up with something that i think will satisfy my needs and budget, but i want to be sure that all the parts will work together.
im mostly concerned about the ram, i have brought RAM before for my old computer, but i brought the wrong speed(i brought ddr2 533mhz instead of 800mhz) will this speed be ok? and im hopeing to get games like BF3 out of it, will it be able to run it? any help is appreciated and im open to changing anything
1) You can get DDR3 1600 RAM for about the same price. It will be faster than the one you have. Just make sure its 1.5 V.
2) For a gaming build at that price, I would get a cheaper case and cheaper optical drive. For example, a haf 912 for case, and an asus DRW dvd drive should serve your purposes quite well. The money you save you can invest in a better graphics cars (i.e 560 ti or radeon 7850).
3) If you do not plan on SLI or Crossfire in the future, you will be fine with a 500W PSU. Make sure you get it from a good company, and is at least bronze rated.
