Running Skyrim with:
1156x654 Letterbox Low Shadows Zero Grass Everything else at Max.
I average 28-71 fps (avg 37fps) depending on load.
1156x654 Letterbox Everything cranked to max
18-35 fps (avg 27fps)
Tested in Fraps.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
1280x1080 (Native) Everything at Max 43-72 fps Also tested in Fraps
Also remember about a 10-15% drop with Fraps running...
Is this really even possible? And would 800Mhz 8GB DDR3 RAM do much to change this?
If you're planning an upgrade the 8GB will help a little but only if you have a 64bit OS. I would recommend you upgrade your video card first.
Well vid card is gonna have to wait, but not too long. RAM is in order with a new motherboard in very short order.
