there is no way athlon and 6670 can run bf3 at high setting :) 

500 usd is minimum :) 

but if your budget is limted to 300, it is pretty solid build anyway :)  great pick, cant really add more improvement

Hi, you can have a X3 450 with the asrock motherboard has the unlock cores feature, so basically you get a quad core cpu.
Had to lower down the hdd, and give priority to the gpu, which is a 7750 1GB DDR5.
You have the option to add more 4GB ram later (recommended for dual channel).

Sorry, I'm not great at computers, but would this be enough to run Battlefield 3 high settings no lag? Or just normal settings no lag?
