Thought the Gtx 460 plays all games, so does the 6770 and cost 35$ less and offers equal performance. If you tweak Skyrim enough, it should look nice with that card and frame rates should be excellent. Getting the trinity version of your cpu should be ample to play Skyrim on great settings. Put it this way, if Intel HD 3000 aka i5-2300 sandbridge can play skyrim at medium settings under right configuration though at lowest resolution 800x600 framerates dipping to 25 occassionally be mostly 30+, then your CPU can definitely do it; as it is known to be twice as good. Still trinity is going to be flawless and come out around March 2012. Previously was thinking of getting a cheap sandybridge 2 core celeron which are fast + 6770 GPU which would come at 170 + tax, or should I wait for Trinity and will there be that same CPU at 100$ which is a steal; probably not, probably at 120. The biggest problem when buying from AMD is that in each generation there CPU speed does not improve; so by waiting you gain some and you lose some. Conclusion, haha, I am waiting for Ivy bridge which will be released sooner or at the same time as production commenced in October. Will get the lowest cost 4 core variant which will ship with fastest graphics Chipset; Intel doesn't completely milk us haha. I know I will be able to play skyrim perfectly albeit still at lower resolutions, but also has Quicksync and faster CPU. It can play BF2, BF3 COD black ops, starcraft 2, Skyrim, The Sims 3, Resident Evil 5, Need for Speed shift, left 4 dead and hopefully farcry 2 etc at lower resolutions. If you need high res, then go with 6770 for sure. or Trinity in crossfire mode with a compatible GPU; the latter should be game proof several years, but only good for gaming; some games might choke the CPU too much.
