New build - final words before ordering

So this is my 4th post on here... This is the first time i ever posted on forums and really got into something so new and strange to me. This site has helped me night after night, so first of all I like to thank all you contributors.

okay heres where my many nights have gone into

I ordered from new egg and amazon only due to the shipping/tax/no interest in rebates. This build comes out at exactly $601 for me here in US florida. I got the 90 trial OS and useable keyboard/mouse for now(luxuries for the future) so that's not factored into this.
For this price is this a good final result? I'm hoping this will last me a while before i have to make any insanely costly upgrades.

My expectaions: Skyrim(no HD packs) on high at 1080 30-40fps... correct? can i? And game like GW2 online on high also 30-40fps? farcry 3 on whatever settings you guys think, I kinda just wanna try it cause of all the rage.

One other concern are... will the mobo fit everything and is that mobo any good for 70dollars?
can it connect me online?
will i have the appropriate cables?
will GPU and other components fit in my case?
and any other concerns I may have over looked.

If there are things i'm "over kill" on let me know what i could do to save cash. what ever i can do to better and ONLY make it same or lesser in price. I just put the money in the bank account an literally don't have a penny more to spend.

Thanks in advance guys!

  1. I would change your Ram to ddr3 1600 as it is a little faster. and the same price. and this power supply is good and cheaper priced. also its made by decent brand. its not a necessity but might save you a couple dollars.

    I don't know to much about the reliability of the motherboard though.
  3. okay thanks! I switched the mobo to a gigabyt one, it's missing the 2 slots for ram and a 3.0 switch... BUT it has a larger reliability rating and an onboard graphics card for when i use it on surfing the web and writing papers, to save GPU life span. Also I went with your recommendations on the RAMcards ($1 more only?) and the antec ps like you suggested. Seems like a good deal for both! Except the rebate on the antec won't be used cause it voids return policy.

    That's what I needed man, i appreciate it a whole bunch man. Saved my ass.
