Looks good, but i would get the Samsung ram, which is amazing, and spend the extra 15$ for 3570k

Samsung Low Profile 8gb 1600 39.99$

Intel Ivy Bridge 3570k 215 - 15$ instant rebate if buy by tomm, so same price better proc

Rosewill Green Series RG530-S12 530W 54$

never had an MSI, but

ASUS P8Z77-M LGA 124$
GIGABYTE GA-Z77MX-D3H 124$

both good

HD is what i have for storage, works great. ssd would be better for OS, but if your short on money, thats perfectly fine.

Sorry to tell you this but you aren't going to get a decent PSU to run this rig for less than $60. It's been said a million times, but... The power supply in any rig is the least "sexy" piece of hardware in it. BUT, it's arguably the most important. Skimp here and you could crash your system and have other very irritating issues, like the system not posting, the PSU blows and takes something else with it, etc. I am partial to Antec PSU's, but PC Power and Cooling, Corsair and a few others have a good history of providing quality PSU's.

As far as being able to run BF3 on ultra, yeah, you'll be able to run it there, but your FPS may be below acceptable. What's most important to you? Graphics quality? Game play? Personally, I'd trade a little graphics eye candy for good game play any day. In the middle of a fire fight the LAST thing I'm thinking about and noticing is what kind of graphics I have running. BF3 is a very tasking game on both your GPU and CPU. Overclock your CPU and you should be good there, but I don't think you can run BF3 on ultra acceptably with a single 7950. BF3 is also memory hungry so whatever card you choose should have 2GB of VRAM or better. I had 2 GTX 570's in SLI overclocked and couldn't get BF3 to run acceptably on ultra, because IMO the 1.2GB of VRAM just wasn't up to it.

You will have no problem running 50+ fps in ultra on 1080p
the 7950/3570k combo is more than up to the task. Once you start upping the res to 1600,1920, then fps will start to drop

and while higher quality PSU's are def worth it, if you dont have the $, you dont have the $
