I'm new to this computer building stuff and I want to build something that could run skyrim on high or higher with at least 50 fps with some mods like an ENB, armors and weapons mods and some quests too. Also, my budget is about 600$ so don't propose GPU's at like 400$. So could you help me and say if I should change something on my build. Thanks!

It will do fine. High, maybe higher even with the ENB. Skyrim likes Intel chips more than AMD. You may want to see if you can squeeze out another 4GB of memory (making it 8GB in total).

There are H77 boards which can support that processor because there's no use getting a Z77 boards if the CPU couldn't be overclocked, and you could get it for cheaper. Unless if you want to overclock the CPU in some way otherwise there's no purpose in getting the board. :p  But overall the build is great, you could run Skyrim with no problems UNLESS if you run with excessive mods haha. :D

A little bit over it, but i am sure that you want better performance and you are going to spend a little bit more.

Dump that "CoolMax" power supply for a Corsair, XFX, Antec or Seasonic 500--600watts will run that system fine...

The "CoolMax", is a Max / Peak power supply simply won't perform as advertised.....

That XFX 550 is an excellent supply. So is the Corsair CX500 or CX600.... (but the TX is better is you can afford it)

It should be playable, but you may get some stutter.

You can always try before getting more memory, and if it works, Great! But be prepared to remove it if it doesn't.
