theres a thread at the top of the forum about how to ask for advice .

But $2k is way more than you will need to spend to play Skyrim .

Are you going to be using this computer only for Skyrim, or maybe future games too? Sounds like a stupid question, but if it's only for skyrim, then the total cost will probably be around ~$1250.

Well I would like to save money too,but I just want to be able to play the game maxed out with mods etc.So the max I am willing to pay is $2000,the cheaper the better
