REPOSTED DUE TO HITTING SOLVED BY ACCIDENT

hi all looking to build a gaming pc for a friend who has got a maximum of £1200 to spend.
he is in to his modding on skyrim and fallout and is looking to run up to 300 mods including enb and texture mods.but also wants to run ANY game on ultra settings at ease.
i have built a list on pcpartpicker if anyone could give advice on anything better to use for the money that would be greatly appreciated

also have dvd/cd writer windows 7 64bit and a monitor so they are not needed in list

thanks in advance

You accidentally clicked best solution too? Heh, you can ask moderators to 'unsolve' them, or you can select a different solution, or you can even do it yourself. Either way, your selection looks good. By the way, you have to be seriously nice to your friend to be willing to spend 12 hundred, not many people are that generous, congrats, you've made it into the world's top 1,000,000 nicest people list. And no, 1 million people is not a lot ;D

' things? TH does that automatically when you reply, and if you mean the black, visible ones, then that is also automatic with TH replies.

Ram is too tall, for the heatsink. PSU is not very good. I changed the motherboard to a THG recommended board.
