I'm thinking of doing this build, just curious how it will run. My current (Foxcom MB, 4g DDR2, GTX550TI, Phenom iiX3 720 BE) runs Skyrim on high, fairly well. But I'm looking for a PC that could handle ultra, but I'd rather it just play seamlessly at high.

MoBO: M4N68T-M V2 Socket AM3 630a mATX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...%20630a%20mATX
CPU: phenom™ II X6 1055T http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0334812
RAM: 4/8g (IDK which) DDR3 (have)
HD: Caviar Blue 7200 RPM 500g sata3 (have)
GPU: Nvidia GTX 550ti (have)
PSU: 535w http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817226003 (have)
Case: Antec 900 case (have)
So with w7 install discs, and upgrade to 64 bit from 32 bit (have) and $149.99 pre-tax I can upgrade from 3 cores to 6, and upgrade mobo from DDR2/IDE to DDR3/SATA3. GPU/PSU/RAID will be added after the holidays.
What do you guys think?
