I have spent countless hours researching the perfect components to fit my budget for my new Skyrim w/ Mods gaming build. Now I just need you guys to look it over and tell me if you see anything wrong. If you do see something wrong please don't just say, "you should get this intead." Tell me why. Give me some hard data. It would be greatly appreciated. I will be installing ONLY Windows 7 and Skyrim w/ mods on the SSD. I will also be going to be OC'ing my CPU and GPU a bit. I am going to be running a bunch of 2k retextures and visial mods for SKyrim. I will include the list of mods below the system specs if anyone is interested in taking a look. Thanks! -Josh

CPU & MOBO Combo: Intel Core i5 3570k w/ AsRock Z77 Extreme4 MOBO $280 @ microcenter
GPU: MSI Twin Frozr III Radeon HD 7950
RAM: G. Skill Ripjaws X Series (2 x 4gb) $48 @ newegg

I see nothing wrong with your choices, a 7950 will do for skyrim + all those mods, especially if you oc the 7950.

I don't understand. I don't see anything called a HAF 912 Advanced.

HAF 912 Advanced isn't available in the US unfortunately. Go with a Corsair 300R or NZXT Phantom 410.

Too late! Already placed my order. I'm sure the HAF 912 will be just fine. Thanks guys. So excited to get everything!!
