Hey guys, I am about to order parts for my computer. Problem is, I don't know what to get! Please help. I want to play BF3 on Med/High settings, and the Valve seiries almost maxed out. Resolotion at 1920x1080, and one more thing. Please include a disc drive and exclude windows, I already have Windows 7 Ultimate.

Also, I prefer most of the build from newegg. But if you have a build already and it will effect the price, nevermind. And don't include rebates please!

It will be a tad bit difficult to get a budget pc that runs BF3 on those settings... Sorry but if you want one that is in your price range and is still good check these out.
