Greetings exalted brainiacs of the nethernet region,
I'm looking to drop my title of "Console Pleb" and join the l33t PC Master Race. I'm mainly going to be using it for my freelance art with Photoshop's new cloud service and for gaming in my free time. I plan on mainly playing Skyrim, semi-heavily modded. Looking for a rig that will allow me to lock in 45+ fps while using an ENB, texture mods, AI mods and far reaching draw distance all in Ultra/High settings. I have all peripherals: monitors/TV, mouse, keyboard. I have an extra 500GB Hard Drive that I could salvage from my old PC, I would prefer a SSD for my new OS and Skyrim/Photoshop Installs.
I was on part picker and once the part list loaded of all the different GPU's and CPU's and etc popped up, I became a tad bit intimidated. Especially since my coworker said certain brands don't play well with others - compatibility wise - so that could bottleneck and bog down the system of an un-savvy first time computer builder.
TL;DR - I need a build for under $800. - I will most likely buy all the parts in two shipments. - Used for - Photoshop Illustrations/Medium-Heavily Modded Skyrim/KotOR I & II -- (Texture Mods, ENB, Overhauls, AI, Far-Draw Distance, 45+fps, etc.) - Already have peripherals: Monitor, mouse, keyboard, speakers, extra 500GB HardDrive, Xbox One Remote.
