Finally I have a gaming PC again!

For years I just didn't bother and played console games, but this gap between the Xbox One games has led me to realize the gaps that another gaming PC can fill. So I've gone and got one.

Corsair C70 case
ASUS z87-pro motherboard
Corsair RM750 PSU
i5 4670K CPU
GeForce GTX 760 2GB GPU
Crucial 240GB SSD
Seagate 1TB HD
8GB HyperX Black RAM
CM 212 Evo CPU cooler
Samsung DVD burner

I'm so excited to get it put together and start modding Skyrim. The last one I had I was playing a heavily modded version of Morrowind, that's how long it's been.

Thoughts on the setup? I'm sure it's not the greatest in the world but it should suit my immediate needs just fine.

It's good for a 1080p setup, only a few games will not be maxed out.

As long as I can run Skyrim with the mods I want I'm fine with it for now. I'll probably start making an upgrade wish list before too long. Had to start somewhere though and this was as far as I could stretch my budget.

Some mods might give you issues. I'm running 2x GTX 770 classified (4gb) and I run into stuttering every now and again. Very solid build though

I'm not planning on running too terribly much and no ENB yet. The biggest thing will be 2K textures. I want it to look prettier, but I'm much more focused on content mods like Falskaar, Immersive Weapons/Armour, etc.

And a customizable house, definitely. I spent days/weeks in Morrowind just collecting stuff to display in my house.

The textures will likely give you some troubles, but it's worth trying.

It only calls for a 1GB GPU and 4GB RAM, but it also runs a lite version that requires less than that. I'm working up a list of visual mods right now and the order I want to install/test them in.

Running those textures usually pulls around 2gb on my cards, but I peak around 3gb of VRAM with all the mods I run.

Are you running the full 4k or the 2k lite?

4k textures are in my complete mod list that runs about 3gb of VRAM.

Edit: Your computer will run fine, you just might have stutters when playing high action scenes.

I doubt I'll be running 4k. I'm gonna try 2k first and see how it plays through Helgen. I think that 2k with the other environmental mods will be more than enough to satisfy me. I hope.

And if not.....Christmas sales are coming and 4GB GPUs aren't that expensive.

That's very true. GTX770 4gb is a great way to go.

And it works. I'm pleasantly surprised at how good the built in WiFi is with this mobo.
