I am looking for a decent PC to run perfectly on BF3. I researched price of all the necessary components, and it comes out to be between 1200-1300 bucks. After I built one on Cyber's website with the same components, the price is 1350 with free diablo3 and mass3 game. So I think this is a perfect deal. One thing I am worry about is that do all the components fit well together? I think the motherboard here has problems with recall and stuff. Need opinions Thx!!!

The only advice I can give you is to swap the power supply.
The "Standard Power Supply" are a bad brand(extreme gear) and have a high failure rate I would suggest a corsair it'll cost a little more but I believe it's worth it.

i would change the RAM to 4gb x 2 for future expansion/ leave two slots open.

i7 is a bit overkill. i5 for gaming is plenty...
