CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor
Motherboard: Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard
Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card
Power Supply: Corsair Builder 600W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V Power Supply
Operating System:Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit)

I am certainly not expecting to play crysis 3 on ultra settings lol, but would I be able to play games like Skyrim on high with this build? I certainly hope so it was not the cheapest computer (around $700 for all parts) so I would hope to out perform an Xbox 360 lol. I play games like Skyrim, Star Craft 2, and plan to play Elder Scrolls Online when it releases.

I guess the best way to base this question is, can I play Skyrim on high settings with no issues? That is likely the highest settings I would ever really need, as I wont even try Crysis on a computer under $1,000 lmao.

This should get you medium/high settings in most games. Skyrim you could probably set high and lower one or two things and be good.

All assuming your monitor is 1080p

Yes i have a decent monitor

ASUS VS248H-P Black 24" 2ms HDMI LED Backlight Widescreen LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 ASCR 50,000,000:1

• 1920 x 1080 2ms GTG
• ASCR 50,000,000:1
• D-Sub, DVI, HDMI

It is a bit disappointing that this system cost more than twice an xbox 360 but does not out due it very much lol. Maybe I should have stuck with console gaming over PC.

With this monitor and graphics card combined with HDMI would I be playing on high settings (Skyrim) or would I need to use medium?

I think it will run fine unless you load up a ton of texture packs. Just stick with the standard HD pack and see. It should look a *lot* better than a 360. The graphics of my PS3 are turd-like compared to the PC.

the hd 7850 should run skyrim on max settings and will be just fine. Maybe loads of textures will slow it down slightly, but it should run on max

This isn't true at all. I have a 7870 and max settings at 1080p I get 45fps. With a 7850 I would say you will be getting high settings at best. For 60fps high settings with one or two things lowered will be perfect.

Actually i have the FX-6300 OC to 4.7GHz with 2 6850s in CFX and i can play crisis 3 MP beta perfectly fine on med settings with 2x Multi sample rate @ over 45 FPS just fine, but my 6850s is the only thing holding me back, i would say if you buy 2 7850 and CFX them you should be able to reach high settigs or unless if you get an AMD Radeon 7950 at least then you should be able to hit max settings with max sample rate :bounce:  !!!

First misconception - that the Xbox is rendering at 1920x1080 (1080p) or even at 1280x720 (720p) - to get playable frame rates lots of Xbox 360 games render at *less* than 1280x720 and then upscale the result. I don't think basically any AAA titles render at more than 720p. And they all run at detail levels and AA settings that on the PC will be described as "medium" or "low". Your proposed PC is probably 10 times as fast overall as an Xbox 360 - even an A10-5800k based build is many times as fast as an Xbox 360 or PS3.
I looked it up and the latest Halo 4 is 720p, previous ones were less (http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012-03-07-343-confir...)
