So, I've decided recently that I was going to build a gaming computer and I wanted to atleast see if I was able to run ultra settings on such a low budget. My goal is to pay less and get more. Is this a possibility? at the moment I have a setup I would like, but I do not know if any of the components are compatible, can someone please check for me and see? Also If you have any changes that don't affect the price too much that would be great! Finally, if you would like to find me a whole new system with links that would be freakin awesome!

What about this...

I'm not too fond of the 560ti's. They're getting a bit dated. I'd either go with the hd 7870, 6870, or the 6950. Get either the msi twin frozr or gigabyte windforce version....this way you'll be able to overclock 'em and get even more performance out of 'em. Also, try to stick with 1600mhz memory. And if you're really stuck on nvidia gpus you can go with a gtx 570.

I'm fairly positive you'll be able to achieve max settings in almost every title out there...including BF3 and Skyrim. Not too sure about Metro 2033 though. That game has some issues in the programming or something cause even a top notch gpu has trouble running it.

Here's a few benchmarks. It performs fairly well in Skyrim. It does pretty alright in BF3 as well.

Make sure your looking at the benchmark that most pertains to you. Make sure it matches the resolution of your monitor.

Alright, thank you so much for the help. You have done me a huge favor. Everything looks perfect, but I might downgrade just a tiny bit on the PSU because I want to save a little bit of money. However you think that 650w is enough?

Should be plenty for that build. Just make sure any PSU you get is 80+ certified and made by a trusted company such as corsair or seasonic. the 80+ certification is the most important though and obviously sufficient wattage. But, yes, 650 watts should suffice for this particular build. Hope this helps :)
