Based on http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/skyrim-performance-... it looks like it would be borderline playable although you may need to lower the resolution. A GT220 is a little weaker than a GT430. If at all possible, even a $60-$80 upgrade would make a big difference for you.

a 4850/70 off ebay if you have the psu for it, something new... perhaps a 6770, even a 6750 would be a good upgrade from that scrap

A total budget of <$200 should buy a HD6850 and a competent PSU to run it. For $150-$160 you might find a HD6770 and a reasonable PSU. $90-$100 buys a HD5670 or HD6670 and assumes your current PSU is a reasonable 300W-350W model. $70-$80 should be enough for a HD4670 or HD5570 which ought to run on whatever you have now.

Don't discount used. I'm still trying to sell my old 4850 for $45. That leaves around $4oish which should be able to get you that Antec 380W green. Might not have DX11 or other goodies, but the 4850 will game a lot better then the 4670 or 5570.
