Budget Range: $700 (would like this to be before rebates, but either way is ok)
System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming (currently diablo 3 and LOL, but I would like to be able to play graphically intensive games like BF3) , watching movies, surfing the internet
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com or microcenter.com (I live close enough to one, so I can do in-store discounts)
Parts Preferences: none
Overclocking: Maybe (don't know much about it)
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe (once again don't know much about it, but what I do know would be a cool feature to have)
Monitor Resolution: it's a 40" samsung hdtv so 1920x1080 I would assume??? (sorry I'm new to all of this)
Additional Comments: I would need a copy of windows 7 as well. I would appreciate any help you could give a first time builder. I have around $90 in Best Buy gift cards, so I used that to buy the hard drive at the end of the build. I DO NOT COUNT that in the price of the build.
they would top out your cooling and get you set to have a lot of fun without having to worry about airflow in your case...the amount of airflow with these plus the rest already included should end up being phenomenal
Your build is nice, but I would not expect anything more than medium setting in BF3 unless you scrap the nice processor for a better graphics card. If you don't want to choose that option, I would recommend at least ponying up for a Radeon 6850 or 6870 to max out D3.
