What games can I run with this build?

I plan to make some upgrades to this in the future, but for now I'm wondering what I'll be able to run. Games I'm interested in playing include Skyrim, GTA V, Assassin's Creed games, Fallout 4, Far Cry 4, etc...

How much would I be able to mod games? In particular, I want to get some lighting and texture mods for Skrim as well as some that add new creatures/locations.

(Obviously, this is a budgeted build. I'll be gradually upgrading parts over the next couple years, but can't afford to right away.)

You can run them all, I don't know about that PSU though.

Why not? Bear in mind that it's $30 off right now.

Also, how did you check? Did you just look at the requirements for the games and go through, spec by spec, to match them? Or is there some utility like 'Can You RUN It?' where I can put in my parts list and have it check automatically?

You can use System Requirements to check, but I know your GPU can run every game, maybe not as optimally as you'd like, but it will RUN them. I'd recommend the 380x though.

For Far Cry 4 you will want/need a quadcore, and for Fallout 4 you will want/need dual channel RAM, also that SSD wont cover your storage needs, just sayin'

EDIT: This should suit your needs better and its about the same price, and could be cheaper if you decide you dont need 4 gb of VRAM http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Y8tKYJ
