My System Specs

Default Skyrim Performance

Hey Canucks,

Just a quick question for ya... with my system (see specs), what kind of results can I expect with the game cranked (Ultra with maximized render distances)? Will I get playable minimum frame rates? if not, where should I stop?

You should be fine, I don't think you have a very high resolution on that monitor. You probably won't be able to run any graphics tweak mods, and may have to tune a few settings but it will look great and run good.

You might want to overclock your cpu a little bit, Skyrim is definitely asking for that.

ran perfect at 1366x768 on my old laptop, 2.5ghz i3 and a 5650M on high graphics settings so I dont see why you couldnt run it at 1920x1080 on your system.

it should do pretty good, I think fps would take a bit of a hit if view detail was at max, thats what I found with single 6950, but I was trying to keep 50-60fps
