Help building my 1st computer

This is my first time building a PC and I just wanted to know if it will be able to handle games like Crysis 3. Also, how does the AMD coupon for a free game deal work, and is the PSU enough?

    I'm going with the intel i5 3470 quad core. I'm on a low budget but do you have any suggestions?
  3. The link you put down sends us to our system build, not yours. You have to go to bbc markup and copy everything and paste it here.

    You don't necessarily need an aftermarket cooler if your not overclocking but its up to you if you want cooler temps and don't trust the stock cooler. This is a nice set-up though. You might want to get a 1tb if you store a lot of things. You might also want to consider a case with front usb 3.0 panels to utilize the motherboard usb 3.0. I suggest the Corsair 200r case since it also has good cable management but it's no reason to switch if you really like the haf 912.

    Thanks, I'll get an aftermarket cooler down the line sometime then. I'm sorta set on the 912 but thanks for the suggestion. I'm so tired of console gaming and its been fun building a PC. Can't wait to get owned in TF2
