I was looking into building vs just buying but because im kind of a poor SOB i thought about buying a complete first and then just upgrading over time. So i looked on neweg and found this.

Would this pc be a good one to start with, and could it run skyrim with mods(kind of my whole reason for wanting one lol)? Also can all pcs connect to a tv that supports pc connectivity, ik thats kind of a stupid question but like i said im kind of new at this and dont know computers verry well.

Thanks for the help

If that's tiyr budget you can bud a much better machine for that money. I'll work on a build and post it. I'm sure others will/can too.

Ok so here's a $660 build

It will play Skyrim and mods.

If you live near a microcenter you can get the CPU/mobo $60 cheaper.

You don't need 16GB of RAM, 8 is more than enough.

This PC you won't have to upgrade provably for a couple years. Possible future upgrades would be maybe a $30 cooler to OC the CPU and maybe a gpu.

Edit: accidentally hit post lol. iPhone posting ftw.

The prebuilt has a worst CPU and gpu and if you decided later to get a better gpu you would need to buy a new PSU as well since most mid grade and higher cards require 500.

If you want to save more more money you could go a step lower on gpu and get a 7850 or 650ti.

And yes you can use a TV with a rf adapter ( I think that's what it's called) or hdmi if both the gpu and TV support it.
