Is this a good (Ultra) gaming PC?

Hi all,

I was wondering if this is a good system, if not what can I change to make it better? (If it's not more expensive)
And will this run games like: Skyrim, Battlefield 3, Dishonored on Ultra graphics?
Note: I bought the PC on this site: www.azerty.nl and I'm not going to overclock.

I know it will all fit into these case, I got a extra wide 21cm (or something like that) case.

  1. What resolution will you be playing at? It'll play games around high to ultra if you are playing at 1080p and will only get better if you are playing at a lower resolution. You might want to look a Radeon 7870 also because it's neck and neck with the 660(non ti) and can be overclocked and it will beat the 660.
  2. Yeah, it should run at Ultra in most games at 1080p or lower.

    Actually, I was going to buy the 7870 when it was on sale, but someone was before me. Now, this GTX 660 MSI is 30 bucks cheaper thand the HD 7870 MSI, and I don't wanna pay that difference. So I stick to the GTX 660. Anything else I might consider changing?

    I already said that I DON'T want to overclock just because I don't wanna mess with my system for a small performance boost but with a chance to destroy the hardware.

    Woah, okay chief. You don't want to OC, I get it, but you aren't going to destroy the hardware because there are built-in sensors so the hardware will shut down before you kill it.
  6. your not gonna run on ultra but on high yes.

    if u want ultra ur gonna have to get a better graphic card.
  7. Besides that, everything seems fine to me. Nice build.
  8. yes, everything looks good except dont think ull run on ultra on a 660, ull need a 7950 or 670 atleast or 660ti overclocked nicely to run such settings.
