Feedback on Gaming/ Video Rig


Nov 20, 2012
Im building this new rig, my main goal is for playing games like BF3 and watching videos along with personal everyday use. My old rig is dated, so i wanted some feedback, my goal is to keep this rig at about $700.

My question is this a 3-4 year old stable rig to do most of the things i want to do for the next 3-4 years ?

Welcome to any better suggestions =]
