Maybe Put a few extra bucks to a little better vid card to be alright for the future and be sure to run on ultra(although price after rebate is very tempting ) Pay a 5$ more and get like 2x4gb Ripjaws ram 1600 to replace the value ram This mobo may be better http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asrock-motherboard-970extr... m 0 l Related resources Is this a good rig for pc gaming? - Forum Is this gaming rig good?

Note that those numbers are pretty playable but Skyrim hammers the CPU and they were using a higher end SB-E. Also doesn't say if they had they high texture pack installed. m 0 l rukai January 29, 2013 9:08:01 PM Thanks! m 0 l iceclock a b 4 Gaming January 29, 2013 9:13:37 PM PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Algh Price breakdown by merchant: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Algh/by_merchant/ Benchmarks: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Algh/benchmarks/ CPU: AMD FX-4300 3.8GHz Quad-Core Processor ($119.99 @ Amazon) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($29.99 @ Best Buy) Motherboard: ASRock 970DE3/U3S3 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($69.99 @ Amazon) Memory: Patriot Viper 3 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($38.78 @ NCIX US) Storage: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($54.99 @ NCIX US) Video Card: PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card ($179.98 @ Newegg) Case: Corsair 200R ATX Mid Tower Case ($39.99 @ NCIX US) Power Supply: Antec Neo Eco 620W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($29.99 @ Newegg) Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($16.99 @ Newegg) Total: $580.69 (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)
