and is there anyway to make me save some more or a better card for like 5 dallors more just any advise like that.

And my goal is to play skyrim with 2k textures and sharpshooters enb with at least 30FPS
and be albe to upgrade if needed
my budget is as low as possible but not over 820

ps: i know im pushing it with the skyrim enb and all but what can i say its all i got, and the reason i did not add a power supply is im already getting one from a friend and if it does not work out ill just sell it and buy a new one.

one more thing thanks to anyone who takes the time to post and is not a troll.

7870 is a bit better than the 660 for about the same price.

You don't need a sound card. That board does not have Wi-Fi so if you want Wi-Fi, you would need an add on card.

If you don't buy an optical drive you can get a friend to create a bootable USB key, Microsoft has there own windows 7 USB/DVD creator that's allows you to create a USB version to boot from and install from there..

Before its locked, if you're near a micro center, buy the CPU there. They usually have a deal like $50 off, but its instore only, not Internet.
