Okay..
First of all your gonna want to go with the hyper 212

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (Its the same price)

Everything else in this system looks great... It should be able to run BF3,Dirt 3 and Witcher on ultra

With the cooler i recommend u will easily oc it

I recommend getting a bigger psu though... 700-800w (so u can upgrade parts) Because u just about have enough power for that system you have there.

I dont imagine you going any cheaper than you already are...

1000 doesnt get you extreme gaming but i can try

this will be better. the SSD makes the system feel like 1100 dollars well spent. the motherboard is 99.99 after MIR at ncix. they dont update their site that much

DUDE just notcied something, i was reading somewhere that the Z77 Pro3 Motherboard dosen't have Over Clocking Abilities! So if you are interested in OCing you might want to research some different motherboards that support OCing. But if you not into Over Clocking, than your rig parts look fine, and yes the Cooler Master Hyper 212 is a great CPU cooler!

Nope! False. Z77 Pro3 CAN overclock. The thing is that it has 4+1 power phases, so it's not the best for overclocking, but I've seen several people with the 3570K+Pro3 and they're overclocked to 4GHz+.

You're shooting yourself in the foot. Never get CoolerMaster PSU's. Very unreliable. The case is good however.

Not bad, but it's $75 with $25 rebate. I'd spend $10 more and get the Corsair.

The Corsair and 600W ModXStream are the same quality.
