I am upgrading from a Crappy GT 630 which is 2GB but is not powerful enough for that frame buffer size I got it cheap when I built my PC I have a Phenom II X6 8 gigs of ram what would be the cheapest performance upgrade and be able to max Skyrim at 1920 at about 40-60 fps

A 270x or 760 should do that for you.

ouch fellas easy on the wallet lol I am playing it right now High settings at 1824X1026 No AA 8 samples Anisotropic Filter with Medium shadows with some Tweaks offline and I get around 30 fps I am sure this game can be maxed with something a little less

what about a 7770 1gb will that suffice using a 38 inch LED TV I mean the GT 630 is pretty impressive for a cheap card I can run games pretty high and it's only DDR3 mem with about 92 stream processors Give or take at 810 Mhz Core clock I mean I am sure something above that would be much more impressive

Well try the maximum settings and see how hard it hits your framerate. If you want a really cheap card gio with the 7770, but it will definitely not max it out @60fps. More like 40fps.

by the way look at those rebates.. i'm so jealous of you muricans (im dutch, tech is a lot more expensive here).
