    Is that a good set up to run games like Skyrim, and Diablo, Battlefield on Max or High? (i realize thats probably a really dumb question...)
  6. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/dJYu

    i5-3570k
    z77 mobo
    7850 graphics card
  7. Since you don't plan on overclocking your cpu your best to go with Why_Me build for now and wait for 660 TI and buy it when it's released that's my advice anyway good luck!
  8. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/dKle

    Heres the same build with an i5-3550 no K so no overclocking
    again with z77 mobo 2 slot pci express
    and a 7870 instead of 7850
