Use this RAM instead

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820313353

It's a little cheaper and DDR3 1600 instead of 1333

Should get a Corsair 300R case.

Also, the Corsair CX500 PSU is on sale for under 50 bucks. You might as well pick that one up.

You think the corsair PSU/Case is better? The DIYPC case has all the fans and looks to be similiar. Also isnt Antec Neo like one of the best PSU's?

http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=59615&vpn=P1550SXXB9&manufacture=XFX&promoid=1190 is a superior PSU. It's basically the same under the hood but with higher quality components, and it's cheaper than the Neo Eco 520.
For slightly lower quality and a lower price, the CX500M is a good deal: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139050
And for the RAM, AMD Vishera CPUs support DDR3 1866, so you should get that, or at least DDR3 1600. DDR3 1333 is a thing of the past now.

Ok cool I took everyones recommendations now the big question I'm mostly doing the swap so I can play Battlefield 3/4 and ARMA II/III will this setup run it high/max @ 30+ fps? I'm use to console gaming so 30fps is acceptable to me but no less than that ^_^ I'd prefer a constant 60 but aye you get what you pay for.

Anyone have any ideas? According to Battlefield 3 and EA I can max that easily with this setup but what about battlefield 4?
