get this ram http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f312800cl8d8gbxm it's much faster and dual slot

that mobo sucks but not much you can do. The rest looks good though. Have fun!

Do you live near a Microcenter? You can get a BETTER Cpu + Mobo combo for 100$ would rpobably change t a 750ti or R9 265 with your kind of budget.

May Gaben be with you my friend.

Heres a build with a APU. The APU can run BF3 in Medium with 30fps according to multiple videos. Reason I upgraded the ram was b/c the APU feeds off Ram memory so the higher clock speeds of the ram helps imrpove framerates

Hmmmm. I looked up this APU on YouTube and suprisingly, it works quite well. I might get that build instead
