Building a PC for Skyrim

Hello all.

I'm still kind of new at this, so I want to get some expert opinions.

I'm building a PC that can run Skyrim on ultra settings with high end texture mods and ENB on a 1080p television.

After many revisions, here is what I have so far:

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151095

SSD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227791

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233196

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119160

HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148784

GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130794

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131837

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504

A lot of people have said that overclocking is the way to go. Is this recommended?

All help is appreciated.

    At baseline, or should I overclock?

    u'll do skyrim at ultra with stock speeds.....
    maybe u will have to overclock your cpu for certain cpu intensive games like bf3 multiplayer....
    but for skyrim no overclock is necessary....
    hope it helped.....
