  1. Do you live near a microcenter store. They have the i5-3570k for $190 and the i7-3770k for $230

    The ASRock Extreme4 is a great motherboard, you can't go wrong with that!

    Here's a link to a review of different graphics card with different settings for BF3. GTX 560 Ti is listed so should give you a very good idea how your setup will perform. Just by glancing at it, I think you'll be quite happy.
