This is my very first time building a PC and it would very appreciated for any help. As you may have already assumed, I dont have too much knowledge about PC parts and builds. I already have a DVD drive from an older PC and peripherals as well. Im going to use a HDMI cable to connect it to my 23 inch TV so I dont have to use money on a monitor. Will battlefield 3 be playable and on what quality? And, will this pc be future proof? If not where should i spend more money? Thanks tomshardwarers!

up PSU to 550W for headroom

drop motherboard down to an H77 since your not overclocking

430W is fine, dropping the motherboard to B75 or H77 would be a good idea though.
