yeah i dont know depends on the budget i guess. I turned down skyrims settings a hair and it runs way better, I hardly saw a difference I used to run skyrim on max everything without a problem but installing mods probably has something to do with it. I think the mods are causing me to use more vram than the game would normally demand. thanks guys

The new "official" high res mod is a resource hog. I've switched back to the user created one.

I have once in a while had the low fps issue in Skyrim as well (my main place is the tiny balcony on the top of dragon's reach keep, not the big balcony) on 1.25GB cards (570), but almost never. If the guy is still selling it, check the BST sub-forum for the GTX 570 2.5GB version at $265 (I think). I am going to go out on a whim here and say the 570 is worth the upgrade since you like to play all of your games at max settings :).
