More about build look
  1. what parts do you not need and where do you live? i can probably build something better
  2. with 550$ you can do better. there is no real point in pairing a quad core cpu with a low end gpu, because the gpu wouldnt be strong enough to hit those games that would give you a bottleneck.
  3. to be honest, i want to build it my self i have never built one before and i really wanna try, i just want to know if this is a goo build or not all i want to be able to do is play skyrim better than i can on my laptop and pretty much max out minecraft and preform pretty good in almost every other game i may play and from what ive researched it looks good i just want an extra set of eyes to tell me if its good or not
