Hi im chase and im wondering if this build will be able to run skyrim, far cry 3, or arma 2 at medium to high settings. I plan on building this myself so i thought i would ask the community. My budget is $500 btw
-CPU-AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz
-RAM-G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1600 Mhz
-GPU-XFX Radeon HD 7850
-Motherboard-ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+
-HDD-Western Digital WD Blue 500 GB
-DVD Drive- Black SATA 24X DVD Burner
-PSU-Corsair CX 500
Everything looks fine, though I would change the CPU to either FX 4300 or FX 6300. Make sure to get the 2 GB version of Radeon 7850, all 3 games tend to use more than 1 GB of vram at 1920x1080.
IF you go by my advice then I'm 100% sure you will be good to go.
