My budget is around £450.

This is the link above.

I have all the necessary parts, I think.

Will these specs run all the standard strategy games and games like BF3 on Ultra?

More about : good build

I have two questions!!!

1. Does the motherboard include a soundcard?

2. Does the motherboard include the wireless network thingy?

GPU won't run BF3 on ultra at 1080 and the CPU is only dual core. BF3 beats up quad cores pretty bad so the dual core will further limit your performance.

The motherboard does have a soundcard.

Will need a wireless card or USB dongle (I wouldn't play FPS over wireless).

That build will be better. I do not know if you need Windows 8 or not so I did not include it. Very few people actually need a sound card, I personally don't use one and I find the audio pretty good.

That build will for sure run BF3 at ultra 1920x1080 at decent framerates. The one you are originally planning to buy (and I hope you do not) will not even run BF3 well. In the build I suggested I actually gave you a decent graphics card. The CPU is also upgrade able to a i5 but it will not overclock due to the H77 chipset. This is a budget build so don't expect miracles. I have a friend that plays all their games (strategy to fps) over wireless and I don't see a difference...

1. Yes.

2. No. You will need to buy that separately.

Dual core will barely be able to handle BF3, you'll need minimum a quad core.

So it should be of similar performance around 30 fps avg so the op could just upgrade the cpu later on

That build you suggested is great. Just switch out the power supply with a Corsair CX500v2.
