So.. I was choosing parts for my future gaming rig and it came to a total of around $600. I was wondering how it would run newer games such as BF3 and Crysis 3.

Crysis 3 is a crappy optimized game

I have to agree people with top rigs have been having significant frame rate drops for no reason other than poor optimization so I wouldn't blame the rig and instead hope for patches.

its not terrible or anything but the parts you have got are all well and truly last get stuff if not 2 gens old i dont like the look of your hsf either and psu is way overkill unless your planning on crossfire

Not entirely bad for someone who isn't greatly interested on what is inside as well with the psu being over what he needs just means he can transfer it onto further builds no problem as well the ram can be easily upgraded if he feels the need.
