Is this a good Setup?
Setup as follows,

Motherboard: eVGA Z77 FTW
CPU: i5 3570K LGA1155
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB
Hard Drive: Western Digital 5000AAKX 500GB
SSD: Corsair Force 3 90GB
PSU: Corsair TX850M
Case: Corsair Obsidian 800D
Mouse/Keyboard: Corsair K60/M90
Sound Card: Asus Xonar DX 7.1 Will this work with a Astro A40?

I will be playing games like BF3 on ultra settings (I hope). I will be getting a second GPU as soon as I can (High school student on a budget). The CPU will be cooled with a Corsair H100i. Do you see anything wrong with this setup? Also if this does not play BF3 on ultra settings what can I do to make it work?

Thanks in advance,

Pretty good build IMO.

If you can't play on ultra, you need more GPU power really. I'm assuming a 1080p screen?

Haven't picked a monitor yet, but 1080p for sure.

Looks like a solid build there.
