I am new to computer building etc. but i am interested in building myself a gaming pc that can run games like bf3/dayz/arma 3/crysis 3/ far cry 3 etc at max settings. so after doing some research here is what I came up with. I do have a few questions regarding this however
1. are all the parts compatible?
2. could i do alot better for the price?
3. are there parts which are well known to frequently break or malfunction?
4. what other parts do i need to build this pc?
5. what parts could i improve on that would be in the same price range?
6. does newegg or td offer free shipping occasionally?

8350 will kick the crap out of your i5 and my i7 check it out. Also fo gpu grab a 7870 instead.
>not an ati fanboy. 7870'll do a little better, as will the 8350. If I could rebuild my 3770k+670 I'd go 7970 and 8350 You can catch the 8350 on sale with a watercooling unit from amd for like 179.99. pretty badass imo.
