    With those specs I see no reason why not. Skyrim does like fast CPU's so if you can OC it I would but really you are fine

    Only question is whether you might run out of VRAM in some cases. Unless you bought a 770 with 4 GB.

    Yeah I can OC, I've never done it before but my MB has something called "OC Genie" in the BIOS.. see if I can bring it up at least to 4Ghz or to whatever it gives me,

    thanks for the fast reply!

    You can run it at literally max with hardware like that. 2GB VRAM might be a little less, but it should be enough for most time.

    Really, you should have spent a little more for the 4GB Version. Anyways, but still this is a very good rig and you would be able to max it out, literally.

    So, yeah! You can play it without problem.

    Also let me know if you are going to built it or you have already bought it.

    Well, with the texture mods you might run out of VRAM sometimes. If so, you can fix it by going for some smaller-resolution textures. They can still be a lot higher resolution than the original ones though.

    Hey, thank you for your reply
    I already built it, though I've been considering for quite a bit of time on either buying another GTX 770 for sli or buying a GTX 780 SC.

    Thank you for replying Sakkura,

    I'll give it a try, if I happen to run out of VRAM, I'll go with smaller resolution textures as you suggest-- either way, I'm considering a GPU upgrade, another GTX 770 for sli or GTX 780 SC, though it'd be for December that I'd be doing the upgrade.

    Anyways another 770 2GB would not solve the problem at all. Because at the end of the day, even with two 770s in SLI, you would have an effective VRAM of 2GB only as both cards process the same thing and hence VRAM would still be bottleneck on it.

    My advice would be to sell the 770 to someone for like 50-60 bucks less than at the price you bought and get the 4GB version of it or perhaps get the 7970 Ghz Edition since it has 3GB VRAM.

    But yeah, if you can get a 780, then that is the best you can do, but it is not worth the added expenses if you ask me. Just sell this 770 and get the 4GB Version.

    Will do, thank you for the advice.
