if you can overclock the cpu a little it will help in both games. Do not try it on the stock cooler though.

It is a good setup and I would expect about 60 fps@ 1080p with some lower AA settings

Multiple players has much more to do with your internet connection than your computer. As long as your computer can run the game then you are golden on that front, and I think you can look that information up yourself.

Now, if you are playing a game on the internet, then you can typically do just fine so long as you have an uninterrupted 5mbps connection and a ping rate under 30ms. Having a little less bandwidth or a little higher ping rate will still work, but you may get a little noticeable lag on occasion. Having more bandwidth and lower ping is always suggested. But as the game is hosted somewhere else, it is no big deal because you are only downloading one set of information for all of the other character's movements.

Now if you are playing a game where you are hosting it, such as Minecraft, or many older FPS games, then you want a much faster connection. Something along the lines of 15-20mbps and a ping rate under 20ms (preferably under 10 if you can muster it). You need all of this bandwidth because you are going to receive and send information for each and every player connected to you, and any issues that you have will then cause issues for everyone connected to your computer.

Often times the ping rate is much more important than throughput. A cable or fiber connection is highly suggested if you are hosting. DSL is simply not going to muster a fast enough ping to keep everyone updated fast enough.

BF gets a little more CPU-intensive when you get above 32 players but if you overclock it should be fine. Skyrim can be a burden on a GPU's video memory if you add any mods so I wouldn't set your expectations on having every texture effect cranked up. My 4GB 770 paired with an FX-8150 is stable on both those games so you shouldn't be that far off the mark.

Modded Skyrim (and who in their right mind wouldn't mod Skyrim?) eats lots of video memory. My GPU has only 1.25GB of ram and Skyrim causes all sorts of issues when playing it full of mods. The GPU usage is typically nto that highe (30-50%), but the ram fills up and then it has troubble purging and loading assets fast enough to keep up which causes all sorts of issues.

2GB should be enough vRAM for Skyrim... but 3-4GB is probably not a bad idea because next gen games are going to eat tons of graphics memory.

What'd be a good cooler for this?

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo is great for the price

Agreed, I use an evo and it works great. It comes with a 2nd fan mount which makes it easy to do a push-pull if you want.

Push/pull isn't worth it on Air Coolers. But case ventilation will be very important and ambient temps will drastically change temps as well
