Is this a good gaming rig?

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?

  1. That will play Skyrim better than medium with all of the mods in the world.

    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.

    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.
