Hi, this is the first time I'm building a gaming pc and I thing I'm ready to build it. But I just want some last opinions/advice before I start ordering the pieces in a few days.

Will I be able to play games such as BF3 on max setting(or close to max) with no lag? Is this a good rig overall? Any suggestion to make it better with out paying hundreds more?

Here are my parts:

I would go with a different PSU, but do you plan to SLI in the future?

Thanks for the responses, I might change the PSU as you said zander.

@deemo13: Yes I might SLI in the future, would you change something in the build if I plan on doing so?

Well, you are probably going to want at or above 750W or so for SLI in the future.
