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.

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.

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.
