Due to skyrim and Battlefield coming out looking to do big upgrades on my PC and was wondering if my 500w PSU could support these things.

i5 processor 2500k

2 x 4gb RipJaw x series 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model

GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

CD/DVD drive : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Video card :



Im alittle bit dumb on Graphic cards because there are so many of them...but will this allow me to run pretty good settings on Skyrim?

Any other suggestions to a Graphics card are welcome as well :D 


Thanks All

Drop the RAM down to DDR3 1600 mhz 1.5V, 2133 would be pointless for gaming

Yeah i gotcha...I got the memory yesterday because of the 20$ off so it was running around the same price. Thanks for the input though

You didn't post a link to the power supply. A decent 500w will power that with no problem at all. But please give us the exact model of your psu.
