Windows 7 (64 bit)
Tower: Cooler Master HAF X Full Tower
Processor: Intel 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Quad-Core
8GB G.SKILL Ripjaws DDR3 RAM

EDIT: Power supply: OCZ 850W ZX series

I would recommend
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It's a perfect graphics card and its the one i currently have right now i.

I run Skyrim at very smooth frames i'd say about a good 60 Fps the game runs very smooth
and i play it at ultra i have tested the most graphically intense battles i spawned in 10 dragons
to see if it keeps up with the frame rate and it keeps up with the game it runs very smooth.
This Graphics card is very easy to install it requires no power.
Any other questions please feel free to PM me.

This is a pretty good card but, I heard if you mod the game or play any bigger games it gets really hot and laggy

Go with the Gigabyte GTX 660 OC http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00942TK8I and you will be able to max out Skyrim.


She wants one under $200 not over


It was at $189.99.

The EVGA GTX660 FTW w/ ACX http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FU4XG70 is actually a better card and right at $199.99 if you order soon.

This Graphics card is made not to get hot and "laggy". i have about 20+ mods installed in skyrim and it runs as if there are no mods and the graphics card doesn't support mods...
