Don't include monitor, keyboard, or mouse. Thank you in advance for your advice

I was also thinking of this (http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3rEyp)
but I heard nvidia graphic cards are better than amd graphic cards. I also heard intel cpu is better than the amd cpu for playing skyrim. but if that is a decent build, any mobo or ram that would go well with it.

Thanks for the help, I guess I'll just save up for a few months until I can get this.

In a few months they'll probably be newer versions of these components, and you might want to switch to those, so in a few months, ask again.

There will probably be better or cheaper ssds and a couple sales and a new card to bump down prices. Just remember than if you buy quality you get better warranties help and products. If you buy non quality than you help spread those bad parts so always ask for advice. We're here to help whenever you need.
