What kind of benchmarks did it get for some of the more graphic intensive games?
I've seen it get decent marks on s.t.a.l.k.e.r http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1655/15/
From the looks of it, I think it could run Crysis 2, and as far as I can tell Crysis 1 was the problem with most computers.
As for Skyrim, I think it will run it because I read that it is going to be similar to the xbox 360 version, and if that's the case then for sure most Pcs will run it at medium settings.
I wonder how much of a boost of fps it would get with a cheap 5570 1gb ddr3 or a 6450 ddr5 512mb, I wonder if it would help things or create some type of bottleneck to make things slower?
