I'm planning on building a gaming PC and was wondering whether or not this build would be able to run games like Battlefield 3, Skyrim, ARMA II and some other pretty demanding games. If there are any other parts that perform much better, at a better price please tell, Thank You. Here are the parts:

Get a better GPU like 7870 or 7850. and ive never heard of z75 but z77 is an amazing chipset. yes it will run it but it wont run on ultra.

What resolution will you play at? If it is 1080p, you need a 7850 to play BF3 smoothly with ultra settings.

That z75 board only has one pci 3.0 slot, so if you want to cross fire later your other card will only be able to use PCIe 2.0 at x4. Otherwise, it seems like a nice cheap entry level board.

It would help if you could provide a budget so we can recommend the best possible parts for your range. Basically you can fill this in http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/353572-31-build-upgra...
