More about good system skyrim 1080p
  1. In short - You could get more for your money if you built yourself. The build components look good, however the price isn't all that appealing.

    On an £800 budget you would be looking at i5-2500k with GTX 560Ti or 6950 rather than 6870.
  2. Skyrim tends to be CPU intensive but can not use more than 2 cores. So you would have to spend quite abit and overclock a CPU to get to 60FPS.

    I5 2500K as above and a good board with abit smaller GPU than above.
  3. THG review: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: PC Performance, Benchmarked
    THG review: Battlefield 3 Performance: 30+ Graphics Cards, Benchmarked

    Based on those reviews I'd think you're going to get Skyrim on Ultra settings and BF3 on High settings.
    BF3 would run with Ultra settings but you might need to drop back to High to get nicely fluid game play.
