Get a MUCH better GPU. A GeForce 650 or higher will be good. Also, maybe get a bit better CPU. Everything else is fine for a budget build.

In BF3, that system would probably barely run medium settings. The graphics is NOT a gaming graphics card (even though it has more memory). Seriously, if you get that GPU, ur gunna be disappointed with game play on your brand new PC...
