Can my pc run Skyrim on ultra settings with 1600x1200 resolution?

Here are the specs, don't make fun of me lol I had a $900 or less budget...

Processor- AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4GHz (Quad Core) 45nm, AM3 6MB Cache

Motherboard- ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX AM3+, SLI & Cross Fire, SATA3, USB 3.0 "not too shabby"

RAM- 8gb

Graphics card- AMD Radeon HD 6870 1GB PCI Express 16x dual head DVI, HDMI

Hard Drive- 1000.0 GB Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM SATA3 6GB/s 64m Cache

SSD- 60.0 GB SSD OCZ Vertex Plus Solid State Drive, SATA2 3.0Gb/s, 180MBs

Case- Thermaltake V3 "not a very good case but I had to cut corners"

PSU- Apevia 700W Extra Quiet Power Supply SLI & X-fire ready

Will I be able to run it without overclocking? I only have 3 fans "2 120mm and a CPU fan" so I don't want to burn up my system if possible. I would prefer not having to OC if I could run it on High Instead of Ultra with over 40 FPS at all times, I know the Phenom II sucks compared to the i5 but I got a really good deal on it from a friend who was upgrading so I couldn't pass it up!

  1. You'll be okay as long as you don't use the high resolution texture pack. The high res textures need more than 1GB of video memory.

    Aside from that, the game should perform well on the high preset.
  2. I had a 6850 1GB that played it at ultra at that resolution just fine. Although if I install the texture pack it did lag a little bit and get unstable, occasionally would crash.
