Yes, I'm running a similar set up, runs skyrim absolutely no problem on ultra.

I'm getting around 40fps with 2k textures, lighting/weather overhauls, ENB, and about 60 random other mods.

Those other games will have no problem on ultra settings.

Just a point though, you might need a z87/z97 motherboard if you want to overclock your cpu.

If you have extra money I'd also but in a more efficient PSU and a better case

that 500 watt PSU is probably pushing this build a bit.
