I want to run Skyrim on Ultra with mod to further increase the graphics and enchance the gameplay and I'm hoping that this will do it because I'm a little strapped for cash.... I'll also be playing WoW and doing alot of music mixing and 3D model creating aswell as texturing and drawing using my tablet. But yes, will this computer give the desired Performance?

Thanks :)

From what I can tell, it looks good, but you might need a better graphics card...

I am still learning about stuff so WAIT for someone else to comment before moving forward.

Alright thanks. I'll try to find a better one just in-case its not good enough while waiting on others. :)

Okay I found this

ASUS HD7850-DC2-2GD5 Radeon 2GB DDR5 VGA/DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort GPU Tweak Utilities PCI-Express 3.0 Graphics Card HD7850-DC2-2GD5

But I'll have to buy that seperately right? If so I don't have the money to... But I'm still looking for answers on if the other GPU will suffice.

It'll be fine (well nearly, difficult to say, but certainly very high will be playable), depending on resolution, (below 1080p you'll ok), the card above is good, the original card is a little weak.

Ultra is always one of those odd settings that can bring sub $500 GPU's to their knees, especially when you start to add-in community updates that improve draw distance etc.

It will be fine on ultra without the AA FXAA etc maxed @ 1920 x 1080 but to max all settings you would need a better card or very low resolution.

Alright thanks! But I found this build and its not all that much more expensive and I wanted to know if it'd run better. (I'll have to build this one on my own but I'm fine with that. As long as it runs better.)

Processor - intel i5 2500k
cooler master hyper 212 PLUS or EVO
MB -asrock z68 extreme3 gen 3
Ram - g.skill ripjaws x 8gb(2x4gb)1600mhz cl9
HDD -wd caviar blue 500gb 7200rpm
CD Drive - asus cd/dvd rom
Power Supply: corsair cx500 80plus certified
Case - Cooler Master HAF 912 Mid Tower ATX Case (RC-912-KKN1)

Best solution

Should be good for years to come, you could consider the new Ivy Bridge i5s.

Where could I found an Ivy Bridge I5? And how much more do they cost. I assume its worth the performance increase?

Thanks but I found I'm just building my own computer now, using the GPU Asus HD7850. I've checked multiple times and asked several people and everything including said GPU seems to check out. And its within my budget so huzzah! :)
