First time building gaming pc

I'm not very tech savvy so i was wondering if this would make a good gaming PC build.

Saphire radeon 7850:

Asus 24x DVDburner:

Antec Neo eco 620w psu:

gskill ripjaws x serie 8gb RAM:

WD 500gb 7200rpm HD:

Rosewill Challenger tower:

Intel core i3 3220 ivy bridge:

asrock b75m motherboard:

If not please give me better options, but keep it around $800 total or if there's something else i'll need or if it wont even work at all (first time building a computer) Please let me know

  1. you might want to look at an i5 if you can. It will allow for more future upgrades. Even though that i3 will not bottleneck your current gpu.
  2. Thanks I'll look into them
  3. Any other helpful information would be appreciated, for instance will i need any adapters or will the individual parts come with everything i need, etc etc.

    Also i decided on ASRock H77M motherboard instead:
  4. your components should come with all the cords you need.
  5. Alright thanks, I appreciate all the help.
  6. do u care if its intel or amd? and do u favour nvidia to amd videocards?
  7. I'd prefer intel over amd, but for the videocard as long as it'll play BF3 on high settings (not ultra high) i'll be happy
