Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: none, buying from local store

Country: Serbia

Parts Preferences: AMD

Overclocking: Maybe in a year or two when i need a performance boost

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: 1680x1050

Additional Comments: The current specs i m thinking of getting are:

Phenom II x4 965 CPU(would go with 960T but nowhere to be found)
Powercolor HD 6850 GPU
8GB (2x4) DDR3 1333 MHz RAM
1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM HDD
Thermaltake Toughpower XT 575W PSU

How is this build?
I want to be able to play skyrim maxed out on 1600x1050 res. with some mods such as FXAA PPI, so will this do the job?

You need to go with a higher quality mobo, other than that. It can play skyrim on max with good fps.
