Depends what resolution you play at.
At 1920x1080 it will handle Skyrim on Ultra settings and Battlefield 3 on High settings well.
For a "budget" build you've chosen some nice parts.
$530 - Can this system run games?
Recording top of the end games
New Gaming/Music Prod. Unit from Scratch (~$1200)
If I can max out Skyrim, can I max out these games?
Games and video lagging
Can't find your answer ? Ask !

Thanks guys. And I got some help on the forums and the "budget" is $1000. Trying not to exceed it to much but also dont want to skimp on quality.
