  1. Why are you having trouble choosing components , the list you have made is a complete list so what's the problem?
  2. that appears to be a less than quality PSU. do you have a onsite place to shop. for some reason i am thinking you don't live in the US.
  3. Looks like a pretty good build but you want to switch out the hard drive because your buying that 500 gb drive for about $75 you can get the same thing in a Terabyte for about $90 to $110 so its just smarter to go with a 1tb drive next get a differnt video card your MUCH MUCH better off with getting a GeForce GTX 550 ti or 560 the 550 ti will run you about $110 to $124 but putting in about 10 more $$$$ will help you alot because the card you want to get will get about 10 fps on high settins on bf3 the Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 is equal to the evga gtx 460 witch is horrid its a very old card to you should you go with these instead or if its in your range i can give you all the links to an $800 computer that will last you for the next 4-5 years and then you can keep upgrading if you want them inbox me on skype don't ask about the username its: Furrba11z hope this helps!!!

    The total for this build would come to $672.92 andshipping charges would come to about $29 or less because Newegg will sometimes combine the shipping charges with a large order so that it's lower. This build gives you a very good quad core cpu and great video card and a 1TB hard drive for a lot of storage capability.
