Edit: Follow Lou3824's build its looking pretty good to me, don't know how he afforded a 6950 in there lol, its a nice job

I kept things pretty simple with the RAM, case, PSU and cooler. The promo codes for $30 helped too. I figured with the budget and stated usage, the GPU should be a pretty good one even if many of the other components could be better.

Oh, I forgot an optical drive and an OS, so you need to add another $120 to it.

Try this (the GPUs I recommended were sold out, here is another option):

Processor
Motherboard
Graphics Card
RAM
Optical Drive
Hard Drive
Power Supply

Ask someone else about cases. The weakness of this build is the graphics card. Otherwise, it should play mostly whatever at max.

What do you mean? I5 2500k is like 230, GTX560 is like 250? Thats 500 out of 1200 thats not alot since those are the 2 most expensive parts.

Give this a shot:

Case: CM HAF 912 $59.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119233

CPU: 2500K $224.99 (179.99 plus tax if you live close to a Microcenter) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115072

Mobo: Gigabyte UD4 $179.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128478

GPU: XFX 6950 $239.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150523

PSU: Antec 500W $69.99 with another $20 off by entering the promo code http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371035

HDD: F3 Spinpoint $69.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152185

Ram: 4GB Gskill ripjaws $49.99 with another $10 off by entering the promo code http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231427

Cooler: CM 212 $34.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231427

Total including using the promo codes is $899.92

You can add to this in anyway you like, but this would be a nice build for your budget that will run any game you throw at it. The mobo I picked will allow you to add another GPU in the future. If you think you are going to do that, then you might want to up the PSU to a 750W. You can increase the RAM to 8GB for another $50 and you could add a 2GB GPU instead of the 1GB I included for about $60 more as well. SSD would be sweet, but it would be tough to fit into your budget.

Hope this gets you started on the right track at least.

Fair enough.

Oh yeah, oops, I meant i5. What-eva

Lou's build looks pretty good. If you really want to max out BF3 though i'd suggest doubling up on the 6950's or going with sli GTX 560's. Two mid to high range cards in sli/cf will outperform any single card at a lower cost...

If my GTX 275 can max out their last game, I really truly doubt that a single 6970/570 wouldn't max BF3. It's a question of fan-base. Their fans currently use a certain grade of system, it seems unlikely they would try anything which might lose them fans to go for the Crysis crowd. Plus, the 6970/570 are bad-ass cards, especially at normal resolutions.

ninja edit: so my point is don't double up, get a better card. doubling up also causes problems with power and stuff that no one wants.

Might be able to do for $1200? My sig rig was $1400 at Frys and it's pretty much overkill in a box.
