Whoa now I fully outperform a PS3 for just nearly thrice the price, awesome!
First your processor and memory do not fit in the motherboard you chose (it takes core i7 processors and DDR3 memory, you chose Core 2 Duo and DDR2 memory), second you just chose whatever expensive parts you could find and slapped them together then declared it more expensive but conveniently forgot that:
1. He said PS3+HDTV
2. it only has to run Crysis better than a PS3 would, so running it at 1280x720 is enough as most PS3 games run at a lower resolution than that (fake HD).
Also you slapped in a Blu-Ray writer (which the PS3 hasn't got, only a player) when we are talking about games graphical quality, not attending media functions here.
