Hello there,

Finally after putting up with my old computer for several years can I make an upgrade. As usual, I want to be able to play games in high detail and hopefully be future proof-ish for a couple of years.

Mainly I want to play skyrim on max graphics with some extra graphic mods (skyrim 2k for example). Other high setting I want to play games are shogun 2, chivalry, mount and blade.

At the moment my current build is:
Case:? Some old mid-tower Packard bell
PSU: Corsair Builder Series CX600W
Motherboard: Asrock g41ce-s
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 (2.4Ghz)
RAM: 4Gb DDR2 1333Mhz (Brand unknown)
GPU: Gigabyte GTS 450 (1Gb)
HDD: Seagate SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 466Gb 7200 rpm
Optical drive: Optiarc DVD RW AD-7200S ATA Device

Im looking at:
Case:CORSAIR VENGEANCE™ C70 MID-TOWER GAMING CASE
PSU: CORSAIR Modular TX850M — 80 PLUS® Bronze Certified 850 Watt
Motherboard: ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO
CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-4670K Processor (6M Cache, 3.40 GHz)
RAM: Kingston 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz HyperX Genesis XMP (2x 4GB)
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 (2GB) SLI
SSD: Kingston HyperX 3K SSD 120GB 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s Solid State Drive (SH103S3/120G)
HDD: 3TB 3.5" SATA-III 6GB/s (Unsure on make)
Optical drive: 24x DUAL LAYER DVD WRITER (Blu-ray? maybe)

I've estimated this will cost just under £1300. What I would like to know is:
Is the build overkill?
Is it even compatible?
Could I get similar results from something cheaper?

Thanks in advance :)

Nice build and really not an overkill if you want good GPU power. The only issue I see with it is the ram being 1.65volt ram and Intel calls for 1.5 volts.
