being able to get a computer with the i7 2600k for only 1800 sounds like a good deal but also which GTX 570 is it, as there are so many different one's and some of them aren't always the best. Besides that i'd say everything looks good except for the HDD as it is only 120 gb and the CPU cooler (but that is because i am not that familiar with most of the cpu cooler's) but that you can always change if you want. So overall i'd say your looking at a pretty good deal.

Also it would be helpful if you could leave more detail than that such as the RPM rate of the HDD and which exact GPU it is (asus, evga etc.)

Its the MSI OC gtx 570. also yeah the cpu cooler isnt the best but im just looking for a decent 4.5ghz stable overclock on the cpu. Also i intend to play Battlefield 3 when it comes out. I might have to get another 570 in the future to play on the highest settings.

Is this build good enough for BF3?

personally i'd change the cpu cooler to maybe the corsair h70 as you want to make sure it is well cooled. Also i don't know if it's good enough for bf3, i would have a guess at yes as this would run most modern games, but as i dont know any of the spec requirements i cant tell
