Bulldozer Based Gaming System: Bulldozer CPU's should be released on October 12, 2011. The 8-Core versions should cost about $280 or less...

1) AMD FX-4170 @ 4.2 GHz (AM3+ Quad-Core - Bulldozer) = $177

2) Asus M5A97 EVO Socket AM3+ AMD 970/SB950 = $125

3) G.SKILL Sniper Series DDR3 1866MHz (PC3-14900)
8GB (2 x 4GB) Dual Channel Kit (F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR) = $80

4) Seagate Barracuda Green (ST2000DL003) 2TB SATA3 6Gb/s
64MB Cache Hard Drive (OEM) = $65

5) PSU: [Using Existing Case and 600W Enermax Noisetaker SLi EG701AX-VE(W)-SFMA]

6) Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 1GB DDR5 (800MHz) 1GB GDDR5 Memory
(5000MHz) Dual-DVI /HDMI/Display Port PCI-e 2.0 = $250
(Get another later on for CrossfireX when prices go down)

7) And use what ever else you have from your older gaming system. Also yes I recommend at least 8GB of DDR3 memory just as I suggested in my list above. RAM today is dam cheap. This setup should give you a lot more than you'll every need to run Skyrim, and should also future proof your setup too.

If you ahve a chance, check out my Custom AMD HAF 932 Red Dragon GAMING MOD, link bellow, I plan on building a Bulldozer setup with it.

Happy Shopping,

lol Super, so random dude.

Rhort, it's saying that because you need to be in a CPU intensive application. It's sort of a 'power saving' mode when it runs at 1700mhz. It will clock itself back up when you start up a game or something alike, try it and watch.

Yes, I have a little bell beside my bed, so when somebody posts something about AMD, ATI or Bulldozer, it rings, and I come to the rescue ;)

Ah, right! That makes more sense: Now reading more like 4.4 Ghz

How come the Windows one is so far out? Seems a bit pointless if it can be more than 30% off? :|

Yes I know, it makes no sense. It reads wrong for me also. Good old Windows I guess!

They are often incorrect for system specs IMO, I would say what you would need to run the game at decent FPS on high settings would be something similar to:

2500k
8gb ram
560Ti/6950

That said, can't WAIT for this game. Should be the best game of the year(for PC). The best game of the year is probably Uncharted 3! 10/10

Lol Michael, Skyrim ain't Crysis 3 to need that much hardware. Then again, 1024mb recommended!? I hope the game has extremely detailed textures and draw distance.

Also the review of Uncharted 3 on IGN was as biased as it can get. Gamespot's review was very good and detailed. Still, I would buy a PS3 just for that game and the second one... and Ratchet and Clank games. :_)

Well even though that is pretty much what I have exactly, I think that's what it will take.

Bloody Bulldozer or should I say bloody AMD ;)
Anyhow I Pre-Ordered Elder Scrolls V Skyrim, so now all I need is a FX 8150 when they become available. Or I will dig my heels in the dirt a little longer and get the B3 revision FX 8170 ;)

If you are wondering, I already have all the hardware for a Bulldozer based setup.8)
