  1. Yeah i suppose it looks good, but why not build your own? Are you adding parts to a pre-built one? And yes it should handle BF3 on high just fine, even at 1080p.
  2. Unfortunately, my parents don't trust me with building my own, (lol), but yeah I'm switching out the PSU and the graphics card, because the ones HP offers suck.
  3. My rig cost my roughly 1000$ and it runs perfect

    I5 3570k 3.4Ghz (3.8 turbo) mine is currently OC'ed to 4.5Ghz running with a Antec Kuhler H0 920 Water Cooler
    Asus P8Z77 - V
    8GB RAm Corsair Vengeance 1600MHZ
    1TB HDD Space
    EVGA Geforce 560 TI FPB
    Cooler Master Silent Pro 700w (Modular PSU)

    good deal bro, you did great with your upgrade choices IMO. One last thing that's not a big deal, but you might consider it, is getting an SSD, say a 64GB one maybe, since your OS and everything is on that somewhat slow 5400rpm HDD. But that's not essential, just a thought.
  5. I was actually going to ask you about that. Yeah, I'll def. consider it.
  6. The first time you boot up your system with an SSD you will not regret getting one lol. SSD's are one thing I would recommend you get now rather than waiting to upgrade later. A lot of components are easily upgradeable but with the SSD you have to reinstall windows and all of your programs and it's time consuming and tedious. I think 64GB would do you well.
