I'm kinda new to building computers and the works, but I was just wondering if this build is good enough to play games such as Arma 2 and BF3. I also wanna know if the parts work well together and if there are any other parts that would do a better job (budget is around $1000) please suggest them.

CPU: Intel i5 3570k LGA 1155 Ivy Bridge

Motherboard: Asrock H77-PRO4-MVP Intel H77 1155/4xDDR3/SATA3/USB3/HDMI/DVI ATX

Ram: Corsair Vengeance 8gb kit (2x4gb)

HDD: Seagate 3.5 Barracuda 1TB SATA 3 7200 rpm 64 mb hdd

SSD: Corsair Force GT 60gb SSD

Graphics: Gigsabyte GV-N66TWPZ-2GD 2GB GTX 660Ti PCI- E VGA card.

Case: Coolermaster RC K380 Gaming Case

PSU: Thermaltake Litepower 600 watt

Good? Bad? Please let me know about this build.

-Get a z77 motherboard.

-Get a 7870 LE. It is stronger and cheaper!

Hi. I just have a question. Are you wanting to put your system files on the SSD and the rest on the HDD?

If you haven't built yet, I would definitely recommend a switch to Haswell and the Z87 chipset.
