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. One more thing, is there anything I have to get rid of or add-on for this pc?

You'll get by with an i5. No need for an i7 if only for gaming.

Are you OC'ing? If no, you also don't need the CPU cooler. If you want, you can switch over to CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO. Should be cheaper.

Ofcourse if you change the CPU then you should change the MoBo.

"Standard Power Supply" - I'm not sure about this one. Is it a well known, reliable brand? If not and the PSU fails, you can fry your entire system. I suggest to upgrade this to something from reliable brands like Seasonic, Corsair, OCZ, Antec, or PC Power and Cooling.

Great GPU. I wanted that one but when I built my PC it was still not available. :(  O well...

People have added an extra 1 GHz in their CPU simply by using air cooling (like the one mentioned). However, with Ivy Bridge, it would be a little harder. It has been done though.
