Need Build Input

First off I want to give a big thanks to looniam for giving me an idea of how I should build my PC. He has helped a lot and has given me a better understanding of what components I need for what I am using.

    Let's use a game as a benchmark for this build. Say Battlefield 3 on ultra settings. Would this handle it above 30 FPS?
  3. It would max it with a few extra settings like AA and AF turned off.
  4. That's great actually. Thanks for the help. And what about my build? Anything I can learn from it?
  5. AMD is no longer good for gaming. The Intel offerings outperform it at every price point.
  6. Thanks for the advice!
