Hello,
I am going to be build a gaming PC by at least May maybe sooner. Now I mostly want to play BF3 on Ultra and Crysis 3 and all the good games but I have no idea what parts to choose (I'm a total noob). My price range is between (CDN) $1200-$1500.

I do not intended on overclocking and the only thing I do not require is mouse and keyboard.

Any help will be much appreciated and very kind!
