  1. Best answer
    Best of what you listed is the HD 6670, fair enough to play @ high settings if you have a strong CPU, Skyrim mainly depends on CPU not GPU, Also this is pretty good

  3. What's your monitor resolution ?
  4. At 100 dollars you are sometimes able to find a 6770 or a 5770 which are descent budget graphic cards. They usualy seel for around $110 however u can someimtes find them for $100. If u can find one of tehm for $100 it will be the best graphics card for teh pricerange.
  5. For what it's worth, I have this 6670 card which I got for $74.99US after a rebate.

    I have it running at near 6770 levels. It is also a very quiet card even with the dual fans. The included software makes it easy to over-clock.
  6. My resolution is 1600x900, also can you guys link me to the video card your talking about cause whenever I search for the ones given to me i get all these different types. Also canyourunit.com said everything but my video card needs to be upgraded. I can post the results if you want. Also what is it to rebate something, I don't understand when people say rebate.
  7. You'll be fine with the game @ high settings.

    The mail-in rebate (MIR) is the most common. A MIR entitles the buyer to mail in a coupon, a receipt and barcode in order to receive a check for a particular amount, depending on the particular product, time, and often place of purchase. Rebates are offered by either the retailer or the manufacturer of the chosen product.
