WOW, I just noticed you said $300 for both CPU & GPU.

COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus RS-550-PCAR-E3 550W ATX12V $59.99

EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB $$244.90. Also comes with $20 MIR rebate on Newegg Rebate card.

EVGA website giving you some details about the card here. If you buy it directly from EVGA the card is $254.99 after $20 MIR mail in rebate $234.99.

AR version is lifetime warranty. Great card, no issues. Can over clock as well very nicely. PSU is decent but not great. Will easily get you by however and under your budget and allow you to play BF3.

It's a tiny bit over your $300 budget but it will be worth it. Anything less and you'll be bummed you didn't. Good luck and let us know which way you went by posting back update.

That CoolerMaster unit is terrible. I wouldn't suggest that thing to anyone ever.

The Antec Eco I suggested earlier is a rebadged Seasonic unit...OP will not go wrong with that for the same price.

He's got a pretty tight budget. Anything less than 560 Ti wouldn't fair well with BF3. Please suggest another if you can stay under a $300 budget with GPU & CPU.

Those posts that are only suggesting unlocking a 6950 aren't helping the poster.

How about a Antec EarthWatts EA-500D Green 500W $59.99.

Also look what's under the OP's hood.

My PSU is some stock OEM 450W PSU, So I don't want to risk it on a crappy OEM PSU.

Will look into the items you guys recommened me! I'm still open for more (Prefer lower then $300 shipped for CPU and GPU)

XFX 6950 + Corsair 750W

Exactly $350, free shipping. $330 after mail in rebates.

Corsair PSU's are pretty much considered the best PSU's(Those Rosewill, CM and Antec ones cant compare) and the 6950 demolishes every game you posted.

I believe that these two are far better(especially the PSU) than anything else that has been posted.
