Im building a $500 budget gaming PC and i think its is looking good. i'm about to buy it and i just wanted some opinions. are there any better parts for the money. Will it be able to run games like Crysis 3 and Battlefeild 3 on medium to high settings.
I don't want you too look at all the parts and research them i just want someone to maybe skim through the parts and possibly suggest other parts or point out any possible compatibility issues.

processor has to be AMD

I dont know wich sub category to put it in (Homebuilt or New Build) do im putting it in both feel free to move it if necessary

THANK YOU :)

Or unless you really want to overclock now. (IMO, I would wait until you get the extra $30 for the 212 EVO).
