What kind of graphical settings could I run on games with this build

depends on resolution. but 1080p probably the best setting possible for 40+ fps on even the most demanding games.

970

40+ fps

I'd go for 60+ maxed out @1080

probably, but i always prefer to take a lower shot just in case. besides it doesn't hit 60+ frames in Far Cry 4. so there are a few games it cannot quite hit that mark. regardless it is a stupidly nice GPU.

I'd put more blame onto Ubisoft's shitey ports before I blame the hardware, but yeah I get your point :p

This is true. so many bugs with FC4 its ridiculous. can't believe they even allow it to launch like that.

I don't know about arma 3, but you will be just fine in skyrim.

Dunno about ARMA 3.. If 2 is anything to go from then it's probably not optimized too well and you'd take hits here and there on framerate

Skyrim? Yeah you'll do fine. If my 2600k/GTX660 can run some 80 graphics/item/overhaul mods just fine, you should be able to run a pretty obscene amount
