I will be buying/building a PC in the next several weeks. My main goal is for the PC to be able to run Battlefield 3 and Skyrim at 60fps, and also have enough muscle to properly run whatever other games are coming down the pipeline in the next year. I went to my local PC shop and they suggested the following:
1.Intel Core i7-2000 Sandy Bridge 3.4 GHZ Quad Core CPU
2. ASUS P8z68-V-Pro LGA 1155 Intel Chipset ATX Mother Board
3. 8gb DDR 3 Pc3-12800 memory
4. Corsair 700W power supply
5. ASYS GeForce GTX570 1280MB GDDR5 Video card
This system, along with case, hard drive etc, was quoted at $1500.
Will this be enough to help me achieve my goals?
