  1. Define a bit of gaming? Everything looks good, except your GPU. 30 dollars more and you can get a gtx 560. Another 20 and a gtx 560 ti. Other than that it's a good build.
  2. I want to able to play modern games at medium+ setting
    eg. battlefield 3

    And yeah, i'll definitely consider the 560. Just depends if I can scrape enough money together :)

    Then yup, medium, and maybe even high at around 30fps.
