I am building a pc and seeing if this is a good build. is it compatible? can it run games like skyrim or battlefield so that i can least play them on moderate settings. could you guys give me some recommendations also. thanks in advance
Technically what you have chosen is compatible, however, for a modern system, a quad core is the way to go, anything less is not a good pair with such a powerful video card. I'm sure someone will come along and tell you to buy an i3. (we get that on this forum alot) If you want to go with an Intel build, don't let anyone talk you into an i3. Step up to a quad core i5 if you go that route. An i3 is a dual core that pretends to have 4 cores, its good at that, but again, not proper with a high power video card like that.
