Ok, heres what I made up within 5 min. (50$ mail-in-rebate, from trusted compagnie)
The other possibility could be
Instead of getting an i5 2500k, you can get this motherboard
and get a new bulldozer when it comes out.
the price would probably decrease but who knows the actual power of the new amd architechture ..?
If Amd will do like speculation (alot of core for the buck (8) ). The i5 would probably be better because BF3 is build to use 4 cores...
- want better GPU? instead of getting an 570. You can get 460 1gb SLI for about the same price (or even an used card)
-SLI 560 would great too but way more expensive
Crysis: Warhead - 1920 x 1200 - Frost Bench - Gamer Quality + Enthusiast Shaders + 4xAA
570 (320$)= 48 fps or so
SLI 460 1gb (150$ each)= 62 fps or so
SLI 560 1gb (190$ each)= 80 fps
Getting spin point in raid 0 could be an upgrade too, but I dont recommend it on this budget
8Gb of memory is way enough- 4gb would be enought too (about 20$ difference)
700w is good
EDIT: get this one instead http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817256072
