Battlefield 3 and Skyrim

I'm building a PC in order to play games that are comming out in the near future like BF3, Skyrim, etc. My budget goes from 950 to about 1300 dollars and the parts I picked are the following:

-AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ955FBGMBOX

-NZXT Phantom case

-MSI R6950-2PM2D2GD5 Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

-Patriot Gamer 2 Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SD-RAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model PGD38G1333ELK

-SILVERSTONE ST75F-P 750W ATX 12V v2.3 / EPS 12V 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

-SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

-ASRock 890GX PRO3 AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

-ASUS Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM

I know neither the developers from BF3 or TES V have released the system requirements to run the games, but do you guys think I will be able to run them at least at high settings, maybe ultra or max?? Also, which parts could be upgraded without reaching the 1300 dollars mark??

  1. Nice choice but I would go for intel core i5 2500k.
  2. Best answer
    yep 2500k h61 or p67 motherboard and 4gigs of ram it will seriously outperform the phenom 2 on other task. none of us use out pc's exclusively for gaming when they can do so much more... and the 2500k would just brutalize the phenom in this field
