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.

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.

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.

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.
