hi i am a very poor person (lol) and i want a decent computer to mainly play league of legends and minecraft at 30+ fps. i also want to be able to play bf3 at medium settings in a window (i hate playing fps games in full screen) at 20+fps. i know i know amd sucks ass i heard but I just want to know if all these parts look compatible. (ps please dont suggest going with intel i3 or pentium or anything with intel :p ) btw the most i can spend is $440 and im buying a pos psu but im probably upgrading that when i get the funds. so here it goes.

You do know that playing in a window can be slower than full screen? At 1280x720 that build is OK. At 1080p, its not enough. Personally I'd save up an additional $200 and build a much much better system.

Parts are compatible. Those parts should give you the performance you want (Though BF3 im unsure of, if you lower the resolution probably).

I would swap to an old Phenom II x4 965 processor. Bulldozer doesn't perform as well in games, its more optimized for multi-threaded tasks, which the FX-4100 cant do anyway.
AMD Phenom II x4 965. $110

This RAM kit may be a bit cheaper than the Corsairs.
G.Skill Ripjaws 8GB (2x4GB) 1600mhz CL9 1.5v. $46

Thats pretty much the only GPU you can get at that price range without diving into the lower end of previous generations, I would stick with it.
