System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Watching HD content, Web browsing.
Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers. I also don´t require a large Hard drive, 500gb is more than enough for now. Also is a CD/DVD Burner/Drive necessary if I am going to buy all my games and content online? I´d rather buy a better case or more RAM than to put something I won´t have any use for. I will in the future for sure but now I would like to focus on performance.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No preference.
Parts Preferences: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz 32nm 6MB Quad-Core and GeForce GTX 570 GDDR5. Mainly building this rig to play Skyrim on Ultra Detail, 16x AF, 4x AA, 4x TrSSAA/Adaptive 1920x1080.
SLI or Crossfire: Yes, in the future but just have enough money for one graphics card atm.
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080.
Additional Comments: Mainly building to max Skyrim with 30-50ish FPS. I´m curious how much harder it is to play the game with the superior graphics mod they have released for the game. I would also like to play other games at high settings but Skyrim is the goal. This will be my first PC I have not bought already assembled so I don´t know anything about which PSU to choose or how much RAM I´ll need or what case I should get etc. I read the Skyrim benchmarking on this site and saw that the GTX 570 and the Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz handled it pretty well so it seems like a logical choice. I would very much like a quiet pc.
