Hi guys I have a 1055t OCed to 3.8 and GTX 460 768mb. What would be the the best/optimal upgrade I can do to be able to run Skyrim on Ultra 1080p with 30+ texture packs mods like Monster mod/ Wars in Skyrim?

Current pc
CPU: AMD Phenom II x6 1055t OCed
CPU cooler: 2nd hand COOLER MASTER Hyper N 520 (not sure if this actually it but it looks like it)
MOBO: Gigabyte 970A-UD3 latest bios (recently upgraded)
Memory: G Skill sniper 1866 2x4gb (aware that 1055t does not support 1866 freq but runs better than my RAM as described below)
Storage: Samsung Spinpoint F3 500gb
GPU: Evga gtx 460 768mb OCed
Case: 2nd hand Thermaltake Soprano
PSU: Antec BP550 Plus 550W

Hi :) 

Most optimal upgrade for gaming would be a better graphics card....around double the price of that low end one...

All the best Brett :)

Would you think that a 660Ti would be enough or should I go with the 670 or 7950/7970?

Hi :) 

Its really down to budget...

As i tell the customers in my shops, gaming cards are ALL about money... the MORE you pay the BETTER you get....

Mine is a 7990, the MOST expensive you can buy, but also the BEST...

So its down to how much you want to spend and how well you want to game..

All the best Brett :)

Ok thanks, I think I'm gonna go with a 660ti. I think that's the best card without the need to buy a new case.

to be honest i really like the 660ti it performs very well in just about any game, and if you are willing to do some overclocking you can get maybe get it to run better than a 670 at stock.

Although, if you are into using many mods and stuff in your games, 2 GB of graphics memory may not be enough
