Hello, I'm just wondering what the cheapest Graphics card is for Skyrim, where I can have at least High Quality.

The Radeon 6850 or 6870 are currently the best bang for your buck if you are looking for reasonable performance, at a great price. What country do you live in? The 6850 goes for about 125 american, while the 6870 goes for about 140 with marginally better performance.

What do you have now ? what is your budget and what is your resolution ?
Do you have a decent PSU as well or are you looking at upgrading an off the shelf unit with a generic PSU ?

What is your cpu? Skyrim likes a high clock Dual-core cpu.

PSU?
