Can this pc run skyrim on high? http://www.walmart.com/ip/iBUYPOWER-Gamer-WA563R7-Black-Desktop-PC-with-AMD-Six-Core-FX-6300
Looking for a pre-built pc for Skyrim and general gaming.

^^ +1 It should be able to run Skyrim on High. But, it seems too overpriced to me. You should consider building your own PC . Also, I think you would get more frames per second than in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxgnymh1YAw because the processor in that video might be holding the gpu back a little bit, or as we call it: causing a bottleneck. In fact with your PC, you would be able to get 80 FPS on Normal at 1080p! Anywayz Hope I helped! Best of luck. ALSO, PLEASE DO A GOOGLE SEARCH NEXT TIME, BECAUSE ANSWERS ARE EASILY FOUND, AND IT IS MUCH QUICKER THAN WAITING FOR A REPLY ON THESE FORUMS. And we don't want our forums to be polluted with questions that have already been answered like this one.
Thanks for all the answers guys. I ended up going with this one:
Cost a bit more but should also be more future proof and the comments say it is cheaper than it would be to build.
Should I leave the pc on all the time or turn it off at nights? I have a laptop and I leave it on 99.99% of the time, but I don't game on it.
Just thought I'd mention some extra precautions. Your Mobo is one of these (16mb supported)
If you compare them to this chart https://spreadsheets.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0AgN1D79Joo7tdE9xMUFlMEVWeFhuckJEVF9aMmtpUFE&gid=0
you will see that many of the possible mobos might have trouble with that CPU. The PSU is something to factor in aswell; if you start having troubles, it's likely one of the two.
They seem to shove the worst mobos and PSU in prebuilts, which is one reason why I try to never recommend them. This isn't to say however, that your computer won't work fine, it seems to have "ok" reviews. Enjoy gaming
I would shut off the computer always. Reduces your powerbill and may even make your parts last longer (from less usage) . That's just imo though.
