Hello, I'm looking into building my first pc and have decided upon this set, it will be used for gaming, on a 1680x1050 monitor games such as Borderlands 2, farcry3, bf3, arma2 (dayz) etc. preferably. Would all these things be compatible and work well? My budget is under $700 if i can change anything to make it better please let me know; here are the parts
Case:Cooler master HAF 912 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
GPU: MSI GTX 660 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
PSU:LOGISYS http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
RAM:Team Xtreme Dark http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
MoBo:Asrock H77http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CPU:Intel Core i5-2310 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CPU cooler: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also no need for monitor,OS, HDD, or CD/DVD Drive
Thanks any help appreciated

For an un-overclockable CPU, the stock cooler is fine if you add some other thermal paste (arctic silver etc)

but get a i5 3470 if you can afford it, it is the best bang for buck i5 out there in my opinion if you are not overclocking
