Hello,

I have a standard Dell inspiron 540 computer not yet geared towards gaming, but I want to play battlefield 3. What I think I need to do is upgrade PSU, processor, ram, and graphics card. Am I missing anything?

My current specs:

Processor: Intel Core Duo E2160 / 2.2 GHz

Operating System: Windows 7 32bit

Mainboard: Chipset type Intel G33 Express

Ram: 2gb

Graphics: Integrated Intel graphics

Links to what I'm considering buying. Are these even compatible?

Thanks.

Those are not even compatible with what you have
You have to have a new motherboard, but by this point build a brand new computer
Thermaltake powersupply = junk btw and how is an AMD cpu going to work on an old intel motherboard? Think it out :)

Does that Dell have DX10? If yes then maybe you can get into a game of BF3. Otherwise that old pc and 2gb system your gonna get lagagagagagagagagagagagagagag and probably find yourself getting booted of game servers regurally
