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!

-SSD: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internam SSD

-DVD Drive- ASUS DVD Burner- Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X

-Hard Drive: Western Digital WD Black WD002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal HArd Drive


Parts im planning to buy:

-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

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.
