Hello, this will be my 1st build want to know if it is worth it and if there are any compatibility issues etc.
My Build:
Processor Core i3 2100
Gpu Radeon hd 7750
Motherboard Asus p8h61 mlx
Psu cooler master gx series 550w
HDD Seagate 500gb
RAM Kingston 4gb ddr3
I want to play the latest games like bf3 and upcoming games like crysis 3 at 30+ fps but am not crazy about maxing out the settings. P.s my current monitor is 1280x720 resolution but im not upgrading it for the moment will see at a later date.

Your build is pretty good but if youve got the money you should upgrade the graphics card.
I dont really know what's your budget but i made you a reasonably cheap build which is pretty good.
