HELP $650 budget Gaming PC

Hello, I'm new to PC Gaming been playing on console most of my life. I play Skyrim a lot on console then I saw how much immersive it could be on PC with the right mods. (Currently watching Skyrim Modded to Hell) and the way everything looks on there and how realistic it looks I love it. I tried to build one on PCPartPicker but I don't know what anything on there is its confusing to me. My question is can I get a PC for 650 or less that will run Skyrim on medium to ultra settings with around 20-30 mods from the series listed above? I honestly from what I have seen on the site think it is impossible but hey I'm not the brightest when it comes to PC's. Thanks for any help. As you can assume I need everything OS, mouse, keyboard, monitor. Don't care for looks of anything just how good it runs. Thanks a lot! BTW I heard I need an SSD for better results? Is this true?

  1. hello i am also making a new gaming rig haha ($700). No you do not NEED a SSD they dont make too big of a difference for gaming plus since its a gaming system youll need a large hard drive and you cant get a big ssd in your price range. In that price range the best gpu to get would be a radeon 7790 or a gtx650 ti google those cards and look for benchmarks to see how well they run skyrim.

    Thanks I'll check those out
  3. Here is what I came up with idk if it will run what I need but according to Game-Debate its good. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Cephii/saved/3u4w
    Is there anything I can improve on? I went with 1GB on GPU because if I went with 2GB I wouldn't have money for keyboard mouse and speakers. Is there a way to get win7 without purchasing? Probably not without getting a million viruses.

    Btw the mods I plan are using are some basic immersion mods and texture packs. (If you look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTLa2AOS5_Q you will see what I mean)
  4. good choices but you may want a better cpu cooler i actually bought the same one its alright but a hyper 212 is probably a better choice and you chose am3+ but am3+ is dead fm2+ is the new socket from amd but if you dont plan on upgrading in the future its no big deal
  5. and no haha there's no way to get windows cheaper i mean you can install it without a product key but you will have to reinstall it monthly i think and i dont know much about monitors but i think you should get one with a 120 refresh rate insted of 60
  6. Switched out the GPU for a better one hopefully. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Cephii/saved/3uj0
    So here is my main concern: Will this be able to run Skyrim at med-high settings decent FPS 40-60 with around 120 mods give or take a few. Here is a list I put together of the mods I am considering. https://docs.google.com/document/d/19vsmjTFaZ6xZb4uLH6wx1gxvFAa5cu6Wy21KtIoLPnI/edit
  7. heres a link http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7870-review-benchmark,3148-15.html they tested skyrim with the card you chose and be careful with that psu you should get a 80+ bronze certified one

    Definitely check out this build, I put the parts together myself and I am going to order the parts online as soon as I could, hope this helps. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/JosephH/saved/3vqn
