Is this a good, cheap gaming pc build?

Hi, I am building my first gaming PC and would like to know if the components are pretty good and maybe any useful tips for building a PC. The maximum I can spend is £650 and I am aiming to be able to play games like battlefield 3 on medium or high with pretty good fps.

Here is what I might get at the moment:

Gigabyte GTX 560 OC Edition 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI Mini HDMI PCI-E Graphics Card

Samsung SH-222BB SATA DVD Write Optical Drive | OEM

Alpine 700W Blue PSU - 12cm Fan 4x SATA

UK Kettle Lead - UK Plug - IEC Socket 1.8m

Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3-B3 Z68 Socket 1155 7.1 Channel HD Audio ATX Motherboard

Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4GHz Socket 1155 6MB Cache Retail Boxed Processor

WD 250GB Blue Desktop Drive

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium w/SP1

Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro rev 2 Socket 775, 1156, 1155, 1366, AM2, AM3 Heatpipe CPU Cooler

Casecom K5-9388 Black Case with Blue LED 120mm Front Fan

G.Skill 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz RipjawsX Memory

I have gone for some cheap stuff such as the case and power supple due to my budget but I thought That it would effect the performance much. I am also looking to overclock in the future but if I do I will be replacing and adding a better cooler system and case or anything else whenever I get the money to do that.

If there are any components which I need and have missed out on the list or anything better than I have already then please let me know. Also I tried to keep it within the same company just because it will arrive all together but if you know any cheaper places to buy it then that would be great help.

Thank you!

  1. Nice looking build.
  2. Really good looking build. Might want to take out the Hard Drive and throw in an SSD 60-128GB unit ($50-100 USD) Huge difference going from moving parts - non moving parts.
