  1. IIRC Skyrim is scheduled for 11.11 release, with any luck there might be some next generation cards available by then. You wont be needing the top-of-the-line model, but since the next gen comes with a die shrink, you'll end up with much lower power consumption at adequate performance level...

    btw have they released any info about the recommended specs or anything like that yet?

  3. You still got time before the game comes out so I would just wait a bit.

    Your resolution isn't that high so you don't need a particularly powerful video card.

    Seems a bit odd to me but i don't know for sure. It lists Sound card which has nothing to do with gaming capabilities and 3 GB is a funny number for Ram as far as im concerned.

    Mactronix :)

  5. They list DirectX 9 compatible sound card, that's just saying "We programmed this game using DX9 libraries" and nothing more.

    system requirements at this stage, well, that may be accurate, or it may not. I wouldn't rely on it, but would suggest waiting, though really, anything you should buy would probably be good enough.
  6. Ahh ok

    No rush cheers guys.
