Very nice build, clearly you have got help on the forums! All those parts are from top notch companies. I would say you should get Skyrim first, there are so many different ways to play it, it will take over 300+ hours to complete the entire game including side quests.

You can't mention those tabo words here! (Xbox & PS3)

There are christmas sales on steam and considering skyrim is still a new game to steam and that it is still developing with new DLCs there should be a good price cut. Stay tuned with the steam forums for an announcement for the christmas sale date. Also have you considered Left 4 Dead 1 and 2? Its a real good zombie shooter game and its on sale right now both games are bundled with 75% off! For only 7.49 usd you can get them both! Deal ends at the end of Halloween. ( I probably bet I sound like an advertiser for steam right now :p  )

right but the problem is that i don't have the pc yet if i buy the games on my acount which is Deathstalker1998 by the way will i be able to keep them on the account with out downloading them and then actually installing them on christmas day?

Yes once you buy the games they will remain on your account, for all I know you can own 500 computers :p  (exaggeration), you can download it off from your account again and again and again. Wipe your hard drive or lose your data? Same thing applies, download it for free from your account. Basically you pay for it once and download it for free forever.

Here is a FAQ from steam about buying games from them: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=836...

one of the reasons im swapping im sick of paying so much for these console games i spent over 70 pounds on skyrim as i purchased it on ps3 and it was buggy as hell then i bought it on xbox slightly better but still bad. im sick of getting bent over by sony and microsoft .

Haha amen to that! If I were a Ps3 owner I would be angry because Skyrim is pretty buggy for it and in addition none of the DLCs have arrived yet even though Xbox and PC got both of them already. I game on my PC all the time now, from where im from (Canada) its usually 59.99 or 69.99 for a brand new Xbox game or Ps3 game so yes they do rip us off.

do you ever watch total biscuit on youtube? if so you will know he used to work for game and they are probably almost money hungry and corrupt as activision.

Haven't seen that youtube guy but either way I know for a fact companies overprice their games for the intent of profit which all businesses need to be successful. It's only when there is competition they start lowering prices, for instance the PS3 and Xbox have gotten many price drops so they could lure customers but there is a certain point they can lower prices of stuff to. At the end of the day, they need to sell their products for more than what it cost them to make it for a profit. The PC gaming market is quite competitive because there are so many games available for it and that one of the reasons that prices are low because games don't need to be optimized for a certain build but just in general.

It's a sad world but it happens all over unfortunately i only ever go there to sell games which i could probably get a bit more for on ebay.

Have you ever tried buying used games on ebay? If there is a console exclusive game try buying used on ebay, I find it much cheaper and all the used games I have bought had scratch-less discs.

Funny thing is that is probably the only xbox game im buying next year. Anyways I think we are straying a bit away from the original thread topic, if your thread question is satisfied let me know if not ask away. If you want to talk about video games feel free to send a PM to me.
