Will this set up work for running ENB mods on Skyrim?

I'm looking to build a PC for the first time, i only play Skyrim and want to have a better rig so i can run it with ENB mods so it looks beautiful. I don't really know what works with what but this is what i'm looking to put together:

CPU: Intel Core i7 4820K
Graphics: ASUS GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II OC 2GB
Memory: Kingston Hyper X Fury HX316C10FBK2/16 16GB (2x8GB)
Motherboard: I have no idea which one to get.
Power: Aerocool GT1050S 1050W Power Supply

That's basically what i want to build, can anyone fill in the gaps for me. Thanks.

  1. Just get an ASRock Z87/97 motherboard or something. That'll run Skyrim with ENB according to what I read..you just have to watch your mods or you'll go over 2GB VRAM.
  2. If you only play skyrim, an i5 4670k would do just fine. The money saved can be put toward something like a GTX 770 4gb or r9 290 4gb maybe. You don't really need 16gb RAM, 8gb should be fine. Again, money saved can be put toward a graphics card with more vRAM.

    More graphics card RAM you have, more mods and higher ENBs from my understanding.

    Edit:

    If you don't plan on overclocking, you can get an i5 4590 or even a 4440 or something, and save some on the cpu there too.

    For the gtx 770 you need a 600W power supply. Get a good quality one per - http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804779/power-supply-unit-tier-list.html

    eg Seasonic 620, XFX 650, Antec HCG 620M

    Don't get that Aerocool.

    Change the i7 4820 for an i5 4690k and match it with an ASRock Z97 Extreme 4 mother board per http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/mainstream-gaming-z97-motherboard,3824.html

    The 4820 is expensive and goes with expensive motherboards

    So if i run with,
    i5 4690k
    ASRock Z97 Extreme 4
    Seasonic 620
    gtx 770

    that would be a good build for running enb on skyrim? also would it be worth getting the gtx 770 4gb?
  5. Yes

    Only get 4gb if your using a 1440p monitor.
  6. The 4gb would help with skyrim modding, regardless of 1440p or 1080p.
