It is all compatible but the CPU is not the best and the GPU is under powered for BF3. I suggest looking into Intel build based around I3 2100 and better GPU like GTX560 or HD6870 at minimum.

budget?

you won't need any extra cooling if you're not overclocking; that CPU is not bad, not great either. same can be said for the GPU.

yes this pc can handle bf3 it just beats the min specs and it look like all the parts will work i am not going to recommend any changes be cause its a decent pc i know alot of people will recommend changes. and you will not be able to play on a high setting... unless you wanna pay more for better GPU.. and maybe better cpu like intel but that's a good chip there....

I would recommend a 45nm Phenom II X4 C3 stepping CPU with an unlocked multiplier over the FX series.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Only $120 for the CPU and still a few decent AM3 mobos available on the net.

I run my C3 Phenom II x4 @ 3.6-3.8ghz with a cheap Rosewill heatsink and it plays GTA IV, BC2 easily with many other tasks running in the background without issue. My GTX460 is my primary limitaiton when gaming, GTA IV will run at 45-55fps using only 75% of the CPU.

I have a few suggestions for you -
1) I'm sure a 550w PSU would be more than enough for you..it'll save you some cash as well.
2) Different GPU. Preferably a 6850, GTX560, or 6870

I would have to agree for the most part of what everyone else is saying. The build is decent, and here are a few suggestions to make it better.
i) The PSU is really good, but you can save some money for still getting a good solid PSU, like...
600W+ PSUs:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Bare Min PSUs: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
ii) The case is cool and all but I would look at something <$100(considering the budget), like...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
iii) with money saved spend more on a GPU or CPU. GPUs are getting cheaper since a new line of GPUs just came out. For gaming and recording and video editing, I would suggest the next step up is an Intel CPU. If not overclocking, try for an i5-2400 or even maybe an i3-2120. They are a generation old but still rock solid and cheaper than the new Ivy Bridge. The steps up in GPU are HD 6850, then the HD 6870, next GTX 560 Ti, and then the HD 6950, and HD 6970/GTX 570. Ive seen an HD 6950 for $200 which is a really good deal. Check out these for more questions...

You might want to jump on over to the Systems > New Build section of the THG forums where they handle about a couple dozen of these requests per day.
And they are more in tune with current prices, sales and combo deals.

You are on a tight budget, spending so much on a case would hurt more crucial (performing) parts. ;) 

For instance, you can get a Corsair 300R for 80 bucks, that's 60$ more to spent on a better GPU/CPU or even an SSD.

Corsair Carbide Series 300R Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - $79.99

Western Digital Caviar Blue WD10EALX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - $99.99

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) - $46.99

ASRock Z77 Pro4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 - $119.99

Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz - $239.99
(incl. Newegg Promotional Gift Card - $15.00)

CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W 59.99$

= $906.93

You could shave off 20$ by going i5 2500k and some more by using a cheaper case (like a Zalman Z9 plus for 50 bucks) or a slower GPU and propably ~20$ if you buy a refurbished HDD instead of a new one.

60Gb will be tight very shortly after build, with win7 bf3 and some small programs (most on another drive) i'm at 80GB, BF3 is huge, and will be huger when the next dlc comes out (27GB at the moment)

so do not expect to put Bf3 on your SSD

shop around for the SSD as these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... are a lot cheaper in the UK, £85 for 128, and its normally 1:1 £:$ other than that you are good to go. I'd generally suggest crucial over force as there have been fewer reports of problems.
