First, if you're a gamer, you'll have to get a better vidcard to play BF3 and other high-end games at max eye-candy.

Motherboard:Gigabyte Intel Z77 LGA 1155 AMD CrossFireX/NVIDIA SLI with HDMI, DVI, Dispay Port Dual UEFI BIOS ATX Motherboard GA-Z77X-UD3H ($170)

Perfer ASUS Z77 mobo, slightly better quality and great overclockers.

CPU:Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000 BX80623I72600K ($315)

Consider Ivy Bridge CPU; runs faster and cooler at lower wattage.

RAM:Corsair CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM Memory Vengeance 16 Quad Channel Kit DDR3 1600 MHz ($90)

Two 4GB sticks is enough.

Graphics Card: Asus Radeon 2 GB DDR5 Display Port GPU Tweak Utilities PCi-Express 3.0 Graphics Card HD7870-DC2-2GD5 ($260)

Consider nVidia GTX 670 or 680 for max eye-candy gaming. Will run faster and cooler than card you picked. Drivers tend to be better too.

Hard Drive:Western Digital Caviar Green 1 TB SATA III Intellipower 64 MB Cache Bulk/OEM 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive Desktop Hard Drive - WD10EARX ($100)

Move up to WD Blue or black -- they are constant 7200 rpm drives.

DVD drive :Sony Optiarc AD-7280S-0B Black SATA 24X Dual Layer Internal DVDRW / DVD Drive ($40)

Samsung or LiteOn

Computer Case: Corsair Vengeance Series C70 Arctic White Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ($150)

Gamers use full-tower cases -- Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced, better cooling/airflow for those long fag sessions.

This new setup you made is fully compatible and how much would it cost?^ I also forgot to mention the only 2 sites I want to by from are newegg.ca and amazon.ca (I don't have my own credit card so only these websites my dad approves off) my budget is between 1200-1300 dollars.
