Hello Everyone,

I deal with the Computer Science & Information Technologies Department at my school. Students are looking to work on mods for Skyrim. Unfortunately, we have a very small budget. Can only afford at most a $500 pc. I now its sad but newegg has a combo deal right now for $355 that looks like it meets the requirements of skyrim, but I have no idea about mods and such.

Check it out and let me know, thanks again.

Get an i3 or G630, and pair it with a decent video card.
$500 should be more than enough for a decent Skyrim Machine.
A friend says he has it 1080P and Max settings with a 6850.

That bundle doesn't seem like it would handle it very good though.
The power supply probably isn't the best either.

Ok, so I went a little over (its 501$), but this is a very solid build for this price range.

This is assuming you already have windows, a monitor, keyboard and mouse.
