That's a totally different i3 than is being suggested.
BF3 seems to be one game where the i3 2100 is not better than the phenom ii x4s

I'm looking to build a cheaper computer for my friend whos budget is around $400. (You can exceed this but the ultimate goal is as close as this as possible)
I wanted to start with a AMD X4 PII 955 and maybe a GTX460? I'm not very updated on newest parts so help me out!
Would refurbs, and open box stuff be considered? Howabout microcenter deals?
CPU and 990x ud3 $200 http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=627...s&promoid=1208
PSU modular $30 amir:http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=330...y&promoid=1208
2x4gb ddr3 1600 cl9 45$ http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=578...n&promoid=1208
GTX460 1gb HAWK 128$ http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=554...SI%2FMicroStar
Or 6790 1gb for $99 amir with promo code : http://www.Newegg.com/Product/Produc...tem=14-131-397
Nzxt source 210 elite for 50$ shipped from amazon.com
Thats around $420 or 450 amir.
Nzxt gamma and 4gbs of ram could make it 400, or if you don't want sli/ cross fire in the fututr you could sacrifice the mobo for a little bit cheaperr one.
Doh no hdd. Well hopefully this is helpful
