First build need review please

HI,

I wanted to build a pc for mostly gaming. It is my first one so i looked up different builds and mixed and matched according to reviews on individual parts.

probably a bad idea for my first time but i found out about pc part picker and it said there were no issues.

My question is: is it to much? basically i want to play skyrim realistically good (high setting, low lag) there are other games but i think skyrim will be the most intensive. starcraft 2 for example

  2. way cheaper with more performance, but no overclocking. i wouldnt get overclocking capabilities until you have maxed out your GPU

    mate i5 3350p
  4. ok fine. the 3350p is not worth recommending at the regular price given its about the same as the 3330. but then if you can get it with the 15$ promo card, might as well get it.
