I need to know whether it would be able to play games on max seetings, lik Crysis 2, BF3, Skyrim, Shogun total war, will it be able to play them on ultra if not how well will it perform?

Another question is, is this a good build? and what are your thoughts on it

Thank you for anything you have to say?

woah woah hold it there. you dont need a 690. with a 690, i can play just about every game at max settings with 100+fps

this is more than enough for your uses. make sure that you get the power supply from overclockers.uk

you can easily overclock and add another 670 later on when you actually need the performance. with a 670 you can get around 60fps with everything turned to max

please dont get it from a store and get them to build it. it costs way to much money.

a nice headset is the corsair vengeance 1300 (1500 if you have crappy audio)
a nice keyboard would be a corsair k60 but any keyboard with blue switches (clicky, loud and tactile) will do
