This is a bad CPU choice. I would go with an i3 3220.

Also, what is the resolution of your monitor?

I would replace the AMD processor and go for an Intel processor. If you have the money I would say an i5-2500k or if not , i3-2120 .

without more info this is partially guessing. save some money on the motherboard and psu and put it into the cpu and gpu.

No, I'm sorry to say that is a bad combination of parts.

First off, we need you to answer a few questions. There's absolutely no way a recommendation can be given until we know a few key things.

-What is your budget?
-What country do you live in?
-Do you live near a Microcenter?
-Also, would you be interested in overclocking your CPU?
-And finally, do you plan on doing anything other than playing BF3 with this rig?

My budjet is $800 I could do $850 if necessary
I live in australia
I dont no what a microcenter is....
I wouldn't be interested in overclocking as soon as I get it but down the track I might
I am going to use this mainly bf3 but I will probably play ac3 and sleeping dogs because Im preety sure they come with the EVGA 660 ti in a build that someone else suggested.
