    Think you're looking at around $600 to do that.

    i3-3220
    2x4GB G.Skill Ares 1600Mhz
    ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP
    HIS IceQ HD 7850 2GB
    Samsung Spinpoint F4 320GB
    Antec EA-380D 380W
    Coolermaster Elite 430
    ASUS DVD Burner

    Comes up to roughly $590 on Newegg and shouldn't have any problems with BF3 on ultra.

    Looks like a good build. I'll probably just get a bigger power suppy. Thanks for the help :)

  7. That build isn't even going to pull 200W, 380W is more than enough and that's a decent quality PSU.
