This system is good, but i'm not sure it will play Skyrim and Battlefield on max settings with playable FPS, sorry i didn't mention it earlier, i forgot to put it in but thank you for your time and effort :D

I don't think you can do much better for £450. You want better, you pay more.

Sure it is better, but I don't think it's enough for BF3 Ultra.

Battlefield 3 will run much smoother on a quad core so I do not recommend the dual core.
