Additional Comments: Looking to get some inputs on this build. Main games I want to play are Deus Ex and Skyrim, so obviously I'd want something that can max, or almost max those games at 1080p. I am starting to wonder if I should skimp out on the CPU and GPU this go around with the possible future upgrade of Ivy Bridge i7 and whatever GPU is hot to trot at that point in time. Also, I know 120GB is not much space, but I have been running my current PC with an 80GB HDD and have never come close to filling it. I also plan on adding another SSD down the road when my data needs grow too large. Mechanical hard drives are not worth it to me with how high prices have risen. Also, please note that I am using Amazon Prime to get free shipping, so if you suggest any different parts, I would need them to be Prime eligible. Thank you all so much in advance.
