First Budget Build (Feedback Would Be Great)


I am hopefully going to gather the money and build this system to play games like Battlefield 3 with my mates.
Case - Antec One Gaming Case - $65.00
PSU - Silverstone Strider 500W - $59.00
CPU - Intel Core i3 3220 - $135.00
GPU - GIGABYTE GTX560 1GB - $173.00
Ram - Corsair CMX8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 - $49.00
MOBO - Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3V Motherboard - $69.00
HDD - Western Digital WD Blue 500GB - $65.00
OS - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit - $99.00
= $714

Please reply with your thoughts.

More about first budget build feedback great
  1. Nice, but it wont play BF3 on Ultra/High at 1080p. Maybe medium settings at around 50FPS. I suggest replacing your GPU with a 560Ti or a 7850 if affordable.
  2. what about a 6850?
    is that still better that the GTX560?
  3. well i do suggest getting the sapphire 7850 as it's a great card.
    everything looks good
    but try to look if you can get a g.skills 8gb ares 1600mhz cl9 cheaper if you can go for it.

    this should be a decent build but you will most likely play on 1920x1080 at low/med or med/high setting mixed
