More about what specs skyrim ultra
  1. A 7850 or 7870 should be able to max Skyrim out.(assuming you're on 1080)

    As for a whole build setup suggestion, I suggest you go the New Build section of the forum.
    Be sure to fill up the format on the sticky as well.
  2. I don't think i've ever seen a motherboard with less than two ram slots, so i doubt that will be an issue. I would suggest buying all your components over the next month as we should be seeing some relatively good deals (black friday/cyber monday). I just finished building mine yesterday, heres what i buit.

    Intel i5 3570k from tiger direct - they had a $50 off coupon $185
    ASROCK Z77 extreme with 8 gigs DDR3 1600 $135
    Antec Earthwatts 500w pwr supply ebay $30
    Silverstone case from amazon $50
    EVGA 660ti from amazon (w/ borderlands 2 coupon) $300
    Samsung 830 256g SSD $165
    Liteon DVD burner $20


    So assuming your budget is $700ish then i woud drop the video card to a 7870, your other option would be to look for a used 580 gtx, they can usually be found at around the same price point.
  3. I'd suggest something like this

  4. i run skyrim ultra settings on 1920 x 1080 with Sapphire HD 7770. Min 28, Max 62, Avg 51. If you have more budget go for the 7850.
