  1. you have a nice set up everything should work well and Good luck to ya
  2. Skyrim will work on ultra, and BF3 will work on ultra with AA. Good luck!
  3. Yes, I have a GTX560Ti and Skyrim is maxed.
    The only thing I'd change is get a bigger SSD. Sixty GB will disappear quickly. I could probably do a little cleaning, but I'm up to about 87GB on mine (Win7/64 Ultimate though).
  4. it would do amazing

    Thanks everyone above, I guess I will go with this one then, also I will be purchasing the Gigabyte version, which one do you have? And I am a little confused about SSD and hard drive. Will the SSD replace the hard drive? Or is it something separate, because 60GB will definitely not be enough for me.
  6. an ssd will mostly just used for the OS and some often used programs and you would need a harddrive if you want to really store anything.

    SSDs are generally used to speedup booting and general responsiveness of the OS and programs.
  7. I own gigabyte GTX 560 Ti, and I mind you, it gets hot quick. I'd suggest going with MSI :P
  8. I have an Asus "DCII" model of GTX560Ti. I haven't checked temps lately, but it does not get loud, so I believe it must not be getting too hot.
