With these slots):-
1x PCI Express 16X
1x PCI Express 4X
2x PCI Express 1X
What I would like is a graphics card that can run with the 250w power supply and play something like Skyrim if at all possible?!
I have no idea if this is either achievable or laughable with this setup!
I'm not worried about playing on the highest or ultra settings, ideally something similar to a 360/PS3 would be ideal but don't know if this is possible?!
Any help would be much appreciated!!
if it really isn't possible with my psu, i'm not sure what size in watts i'd need to buy or size!!
if it isn't possible with my cpu can I swap that?
ideally though it would be great if i could use my current cpu and psu
oO and around £100 would be a nice price, but I'm not too bothered about it going up or down if i could achieve this with just a graphics card and nothing else..
I'd say a GTX 460 for $160 is a good card, a 560 is an overpriced 460 and a 560Ti would be a good choice at ~$225. Don't know if PB is still using proprietary connectors on their PSU's or MB's though.
OP said he wanted to PLAY Skyrim, not watch it flicker past him at 24FPS.
