  1. The quick answer is no. Its also likely you may get even lower FPS that those benchmarks as they were done with a much faster cpu than you are running. It maybe playable at low settings but barely.
  2. yes it can run skyrim on low settings at 720p
  3. Somewhat but the answer is mixed at best. I have seen a old 939 x2 rig with a 6800gs play skyrim at ok settings but that was with a lot of tweaking. Your machine is an old am2 era with a weak dual core but if you could upgrade to a better cpu such as a Phenom 2 if your board supports it then you will see a nice boost outright.
  4. Please stop saying MAYBE low settings if you don't know what you're talking about. Im playing Skyrim right now on low settings on a Geforce 6150se, the worst card in existence. You cannot tell me that Skyrim will run WORSE if I get a BETTER card. Someone for the love of god give a legit answer.
