Looks good to me except I'd grab the Asus p8Z68-v Pro for a MB but that is my personal preference

I don't see any issue with running BF3 or Skyrim with that. if anything would hold you back it would be the GPU but I think you have it covered with the 560ti. Somebody will correct me if i'm mistaken on that.

$205 is a lot to spend on a budget build. I could wait until May to get a new computer(My mom graduates from RN school) and my budget will rise about $250 but my computer blue screened a few weeks ago. And it is running really loud even just browsing the internet so I really have no choice to get it now.

But I need it to take me through highschool, I don't want to skimp. It's now or never, my computer will be 4 years old in 4 months. I'm a gamer, you should know what I've put this thing through lol.

I'm going to stick with the biostar. It has everything I need, 1600mhz, USB 3.0, LGA 1155.
