Default Is this a good gaming PC?

My Budget is 600 Pound so here is what I came up with. Im thinking about quiting Xbox and just buying games for the PC. So is this PC Im going to build good enough for games such as bad compny 3 (when it comes out)

Here:

Processor = AMD Black Edition - AMD Phenom II X4 3.2 GHz Processor (Socket AM3)= 82

Harddrive = 1TB 7200RPM = 30

4GB DDR3 RAM = 27

Motherboard = ATX - AMD 890FX - Socket AM3 = 130

Power Supply = CiT 700UB Black Edition / 700W / PSU / Power Supply Unit = 30

120mm Artic Cooling fans X2 = 6

Graphics card = GeForce GTX 560 Ti = 160

Sweex 7.1 PCI Sound Card with Digital Out = 15

Network card = Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit EN Plus NIC Network adapter - PCI Express x1 = 32

Envizage E-3393 Black Blue ATX Gaming PC Tower Case = 22

What HDD is that? What RAM is that? What board is that? What manufacturer of GPU? You don't need a network card, the onboard is good enough.

You need a heatsink. The stock heatsink won't keep it cool enough.

If he is gaming, as he did say, he needs to cool down his CPU.

What kind of weed are you smoking? You don't need an aftermarket cooler in order to game.

To OP: And btw, it is not bad company 3. It is just Battlefield 3. Badcompany is a spinoff series. Expect something much much better than either of those two games.

I don't trust stock after my AMD XP CPU took the board with it because it is overheating. Sorry for being a putz. Gaming can put a lot of heat on your CPU.

stock will be fine if you don't overclock.
that psu seems suspect, go for a corsair or antec of around 650 watts.
dont need the network card

and battlefield 3 should be great :P
