Hello guys and girls. I'm trying to build my first computer, and I came up with a nice little gaming build here compiled of products and prices found on newegg. I won't be going above $650. I personally prefer intels but I don't mind AMDs. I'm new to this so if I made a mistake compatibility wise, then I'd be happy if someone would correct me. And as always, if you have a build thats better, then I'd love to hear everyones opinion. Oh and I'll be using this for gaming, mostly BF3. thanks!

Thats a really good build, only problem is I'm not very fond of the i3 haha. I just don't like the fact that its a dual core. I found this deal though http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?I... which leaves me with around $130 for a GPU.


it might be a dual core but turn Hyper threading ON and it will beat any phenom or FX chip in gaming.

Alright thanks, I'll definitely keep your build as a close option. I'll keep looking for other options, might find something spectacular :p 
Oh and I didn't see your edit from before, no, I'm Egyptian, only picked up a few words from Spaniards, but nothing big lol

Hey I read the 7870 isn't much better than the 7850. Since the 7870 you recommended for 200 is out of stock, do you think this would be just as well? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... If newegg restocks the 7870, then that'd be what I'd get without second question, but I've had problems with newegg taking forever to restock items before.
