New Build to play games on high settings

Hello everyone,
I was hoping that anyone could take a look at a build a put together to play battlefield 3 on high settings. My budget is $550-575 and i want to buy everything of amazon so that i can use the free 2 day shipping(prime).

I put what i had on pcpartpicket so that it could be easier for you guys. Link is below,

If you guys think anything should be changed which can make it better or if i missed anything please let me know because i want to buy it by at least sunday of this week.

- I already bought OS a long time ago so i do not need that. I also have monitor, mouse and keyboard.

  2. for the price its looking good. but u wont play bf3 on high with that card maybe medium.
  3. any way to get this on amazon? It is the only place i can buy it from because i have about 200$ in gift card money there.
  4. well if thats ur maximum budget u cant get better than what u posted here sadly :P
  5. I mean i am not planning to max out bf3. I know my friend plays it with a radeon 6850 at high settings and is actually playable. Is there any video card under 150 that can play it at least decent at high settings. I will be willing to wait one more week to increase my budget so more.
  6. well give me ur max budget. i can than find u a build on amazon :)
  7. Ok i will wait some time and i can increase it to 650$.
