Gaming PC build compatability check help!

I am currently building my very own Gaming PC. I have a list of parts I would like to purchase, and a list of parts I have already purchased. I would just like to make sure that all of my hardware will work together. I would also like an opinion about how my PC would run while playing games like "Battlefield 3". IM interested in recording my gameplay and I would just like to know if I would get good framerates while doing so. Ok here is my list!

More about gaming build compatability check
  1. -ocz psus are crap. if you can still return it, id do so for a higher end unit
    -raidmax cases are crap compared to other offerings on the market
    -the 840 is ok, but still not quite good as the other stuff for cheaper
    -a caviar blue is just as good for 30 bucks less

    heres what i would have picked out

    if you are not going to overclock, drop the CPU cooler, change the CPU to a 3470, and change the motheboard to a asrock h77m
  2. The troll told you to sell parts you already had, however, they will work and that is what matters. I see no problem with the stuff you already purchased.

    However, it would be wiser of you to buy an i5-3570k which is $60 less and then purchase a GTX 670 or a HD 7950. GPU is more important for gaming, and the i5-3570k also allows you to overclock. Its powerful enough to handle the latest games and GPUs without any worry of bottleneck.
  3. im telling him IF he can return them, id do so
