So that's what I have so far. My budget is about 900 (Canadian). I mainly have battlefield 3 in mind for this PC how would this handle it? Do I have to worry about overheating with this? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Default Re: Need Adive on Gaming PC build

I have to recommend the Asus P8P67 Pro over the Gigabyte.
Newegg.ca - ASUS P8P67 PRO (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

I have a 8GB (2x4GB) set of the Corsair Vengeance and while they work perfectly I think you would be better off spending less on this G.Skill 4GB (2x2GB) kit
Newegg.ca - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBXL

or by spending a little more on this 8GB (2x4GB) kit
Newegg.ca - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
