First time building a pc with a budget of $500-$700. Would like to be able to play skyrim with multiple mods on extremely high settings. Any advice whether i should downgrade or improve on some areas would be much appreciated, Thanks!
Here is my plan
AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4GHZ 8MB Cache =$110
ASUS M5A97 R2.0 MOBO =$95
Corsair Vengeance Red 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1866 =$57
Antec Three Hundred Two Mid Tower =$70
Cooler Master 500W 120mm Fan =$60
ASUS Radeon HD 7770 V2 DirectCU 1020MHZ 1GB 4.6GHZ GDDR5 =$150
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA 6Gbps =$70
ASUS DRW-24B1ST 24X SATA DVD Writer =$25
Also i read somewhere if i wanted to run a lot of mods it would be best to get a ssd with 1866 or ram?
