  1. Yes, but only without mods, if you want to run say 4K Skyrim Mod you will have to get a better GPU.
  2. Best answer
    Depends on the resolution. Mostly at 1080p you can. But as said above, better GPU is necessary for a few mods.

    Anyway.

    DO NOT put a 8320 in that board. That board just is not suggested for such a high power CPU. You really will risk frying that board.
  3. (assuming 1080p)
    It'll run Skyrim at max, but only at about 30 FPS, unmodded.
    I can guarantee you it won't be able to run Arma 2 at max with playable frames.

    This is clearly a more powerful and capable build, but what's the pricing on the two?
    The 7870 LE performs similarly to the 7950, and should handle both of those games fine.

    That second build is a pretty good deal for $1000, and will meet your expectations for Skyrim on high settings (Ultra + mods will bring it down below 60 FPS). If you want Ultra + mods, you're going to have to look at more expensive hardware.
