    Under 1k build

    Hello everyone,
    i am just getting back into the pc gaming scene again(last played in the pentium 3-4 era) and alot has change since then. im wanting to get back into pc gaming and need some help on gathering compatible parts to build a new pc. I wanna be able to play games like Battlefield 3 (which i currently play on xbox 360) and farcry 3 without spending a huge amount on. i have spent many hrs on newegg bouncing back and forth between parts and i think i may have what i want for a great price and i would like to know from anyone with knowledge of pc building to see if these are all compatible parst or if i should change anything out to make it run better. right now my total cost is sitting at $634 heres what i have come up with

    All from

    AMD motherboard/cpu bundle #N82E16813157316 ~ $159.98
    -CPU quad core with Dx 11 graphic amd radeon hd 6530D

    Video card Item #: N82E16814130826 ~$229.99
    SuperClocked Geforce gtx 660 2 GB

    Memory Item #: N82E16820233170 ~$44.99

    Seasonic g series 550w 80 plus gold cert

    Case Item #: N82E16811815014 ~$39.99

    From what i have heard the gtx 660 should run bf3 with out any problems and i dont plan on running high res maybe just around 1280 x 1080 so im hoping that ill be able to run the game on pretty high details with good frs atleast thats what im hoping

    any and all help would be great and thanks in advance
