I am putting together an average gaming computer for the first time. I would like to know what kind of performance I would get on modern games, Like Battlefield 3, Skyrim, etc. NOTE: The motherboard I am looking at says "Supports up to 32 gigabites of DDR3 RAM." I know my Ram cards are compatible, but I do not know about my graphics card. This is the build:

Case and Power Supply: Cooler Master Sileo 500 RC-500-KKR3-GP

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-D3

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor HDX955WFK4DGM - OEM

Memory: Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB

Graphics Card: EVGA SuperClocked 01G-P3-1463-KR GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

If you notice any incompatibility or know of a better part for the same price (That is compatible with my other parts,) Please let me know. Thanks for helping this noob of noobs. Again, any estimates on game performance would be great. :D

560 or 560 ti? If you're getting a 560 ti just get a AMD 6950 they are same price I think and are a little better. As for the CPU maybe aim for a AMD Phenom 2 960t, or 965 black edition.
