Upgrading video card for Skyrim Tags: PC gaming Nvidia Graphics Cards Geforce Skyrim Video Games Last response: October 28, 2012 8:15 AM in Video Games Share ddewey7116117 October 28, 2012 3:54:49 AM I am currently thinking about upgrading my graphics card in order to have the best possible gameplay for Skyrim, currently my computers specs are: 8GB DDR3 AMD FX 4100-quad core @ 3.6 GHz nvidia Geforce GT 440 (1GB ddr3) Asus M5A 78L-M LX Plus motherboard. (the hardrive and dvd rom are both just the generic ones that i bought for cheap) My question is this: I am upgrading the graphics card, and while I'm fairly certain which one is the right choice, I would like to be sure and get others opinions. I am deciding between these 2: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti (http://microcenter.com/product/383665/VCGGTX550TVXPB_NV...) or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 (http://microcenter.com/product/400524/01G-P4-2650-KR_NV...) So those are the 2 choices, same price ($119), which one should I get?
