I am buying a new PC (Self bulit) and its mainly for this and BF3 will these specs be able to run both of them at some form of playable level (Grahpics don't matter to me but FPS has to be over 25) All parts are going to be bought from ebuyer apart from GPU which is from Aria.

CPU = AMD Athlon II X2 260 3.2 GHz
RAM = 4GB (I am considering uping it to 6GB when I get PC)
GPU = Asus GeForce GT 440 1024MB GDDR5
PSU = ATX 12V 450 watts power supply included(20+4pin with SATA)
Sound Card = Trust 5.1 Surround Soundcard Sc-5100
RAM = 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz Memory Kit 1.5V CL9
Hard Drive = Western Digital WD1600BPVT 160GB 2.5" Hard Drive SATAII 5400rpm (Small I know but it will only be holding OS anti virus and 5-7 games so I don't need a lot)
Motherboard = Biostar NF520D3 nForce 520 Socket AM3 6 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard or Biostar TA870 Socket AM3 6 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard (Can U tell me which motherboard is most suitable please)
Cooling = Cooling will be any standard fans in case, PSU etc. Plus 2 Xilence Case Fan 80mm Black in the front & 1 CoolerMaster 120mm Sickleflow Fan Blue LED in the back
OS = Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
Antivirus = Microsoft Secuirty Essitentials (Included as I now it can have an effect on performance Norton taught me that :D)

will probably be ok but personally i would:

swap the processor for at least a quad core, the AMD X4 3.2 is on Ebuyer for £55 so only a little bit more than the one you are looking at with twice the processors
up the power supply to 500w or higher (im running a similar rig with an 800w supply)
up it to a 250gb HDD (my WoT folder alone takes up 7.5gb space, games eat the space fast)
