Feedback on Gaming/ Video Rig

Im building this new rig, my main goal is for playing games like BF3 and watching videos along with personal everyday use. My old rig is dated, so i wanted some feedback, my goal is to keep this rig at about $700.

My question is this a 3-4 year old stable rig to do most of the things i want to do for the next 3-4 years ?

Welcome to any better suggestions =]

  1. Everything looks ship shape, could probably do with a little tweaking but if you are happy with all those parts then you will have a great time building it.
  2. Ya no doubt, you think this is the best i can do at around this price range ?
  3. Yeah thats about as good as it gets. You could go with a cheaper CPU and get an SSD for OS, but thats nto necessary
  4. ya i guess, but i think the cpu is one of the most important things for my build, but thanks for the input
