I'm looking to build a gaming PC for Christmas. I want to run most games on high/ultra settings with at least 40 fps and stable too, no stuttering. I'm mostly interested in Skyrim, Fallout, and some first person shooters or online games and a lot of open-world or sandbox type games. I have no interest in overclocking at this time. I'm trying to keep the budget under $550, but I would really like to get it down to $400-$450. I'm relying on sales to come soon at this point because I know they'll bring lower prices. I'm also ignoring any male-in rebates for now.
Please tell me what you think and if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. This will be my first time building a computer and I want to get it right. I don't want to buy all the parts to then realize there's incompatibilities.
