Hello all, One day, I pulled the power cord out of my custom built PC, and it looks like it shorted the motherboard. While my warranty replacement motherboard is on the way, I took the chance to purchase a couple new parts for my computer. I recently purchased the following (Seen in links) My processor is a quad core Phenom running at about 3.2 gHz. First off, I'm worried about CPU/GPU bottleneck issues. Will I be okay with this processor and video card to play games like BattleField 3 or Skyrim? I really don't want to spend an additional $400 or a new motherboard and i7.. Also, my motherboard is not the best in the world. It is a mATX board that I got around for $80. (Link Below) Also, should I get a new power supply? I'm worried that this may happen again, and this time it may fry my $250+ video card along with it. Anyways, I'm just looking for overall thoughts and comments on the build. PS. I also bought a 250GB SSD to complement the upgrade. ---- Video Card: GTX 660Ti http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008S15XA0/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i01 Liquid CPU cooler: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004MYFOE2/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00 GPU Cooler: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000233ZMU/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i02 Motherboard: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3/M4A785TDM_EVO/ Potential Power Supply: http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-eXtreme-Supply-RS500-PCARD3-US/dp/B001G0WPLK/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1353706522&sr=1-1&keywords=power+supply
