Tags: Overclocking Gaming Systems Skyrim Last response: February 23, 2014 1:59 PM in Systems Share samuelthegreat February 23, 2014 1:19:57 PM I would like to play skyrim 1080p medium to high with a few mods running. I will also overclock the cpu. What do you think? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2YKQ8 any different suggestions? Thanks!

This is a good build, I got the 760k myself, it is such a little beast of a processor for the price. But 380 watts wont cut it. Try to get a quality 450W PSU or a 500 watt one. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/ite... This is a really quality PSU with 40A on the 12V rail, that's really good for a PSU and it's the same price as your 380 watt one. m 0 l Best solution realchaos a b K Overclocking a c 287 4 Gaming February 23, 2014 1:41:32 PM PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor ($119.99 @ Newegg) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($29.98 @ OutletPC) Motherboard: ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($79.99 @ Newegg) Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($64.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($66.98 @ Newegg) Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card ($154.99 @ Newegg) Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case ($49.99 @ Newegg) Power Supply: XFX 550W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($49.99 @ NCIX US) Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer ($19.98 @ OutletPC) Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit) ($84.98 @ OutletPC) Total: $711.86 (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)
