Directron.com is based out of Texas so consider ordering some components from there & there is a Microcenter in Dallas. Can you go to Microcenter?

Probably not max settings because the CPU doesn't look like it will be powerful enough, you should still be able to play and medium settings.

This puts your knowledge of current hardware at suspect... For games you do NOT need a 2600k, a 2500 is way better for games... because you save $100 which can be put into a better gpu!

Infact I think someone quoted a dice dev stating their isn't a rig made yet that can max BF3.
An SSD? No. SSD's will have almost NO effect on FPS once you get into a game. They are great for windows responsiveness and file transfers / game loading, but not general game performance.

Also... Quality RAM? There's no such thing. I've bought over 600-800 sticks of RAM in the last few years and I can tell you that maybe 5-6 sticks were dead, 4 of them being OCZ and 1 was a Kingston I believe. Don't let marketing fool you with "Quality" RAM... don't spend the extra money for those MEGAHURTZ when the timings are just as important.

Marketing > you.

PS:... buy G.skill / Corsair ;]
