Go for 8GB of ram if you can. Also, don't forget about Windows unless you already have a copy:

The hard drive is 2.5" and 5400rpm - you want a 3.5" 7200rpm drive. Something like this:

You'll also need a cheap DVD drive unless you already have one:

Should be quite good for gaming as a budget build.

Change of plans!
I decided I'm going with:
Biostar H61MLC motherboard
Intel i3 2120(in the near future I'll switch to a 2nd gen i5 or 7)
NZXT Source 210 Case
550 watt PSU
I'm a little stumped on the graphics. Thinking a GTX 560Ti(Comes with BF3!)
8GB of DDR3-1333
I don't think that PSU could run the motherboard, CPU, and GTX 560Ti...:|

It depends on the brand of the PSU and the series.
