For BF3 you need a minimum 4GB.

I will probably be around too, but others will probably beat me to it.

Erm. Any gx or extreme cooler master psu are generally horrible at running their rated spec. But you won't get anywhere near 650w with that build so you're fine. otherwise looks fine. the HD 7850 2gb beats a gtx 560 ti and in my opinion also beats a gtx 570. It's (over here) cheaper, has more vram, runs a lot less power, runs cooler.. etc. Overclocks better too. So you've got a winner there. Good system apart from that psu..

Actually. Edit. If its a newer model its alright. Older gx and extreme models are meh. The newer gx 650 does fairly well.

Yes it is by cooler master
