Additional Comments: This is a general gaming PC. I want some longevity, so I'd like to make sure there is as much room for expansion as possible. I intend to use the PC for Skyrim on the LCD in my living room. This article from kotaku set some benchmarks for Skyrim, and it's led me to think that the Radeon HD 6950 might be a good fit, but that's just my novice conjecture. I'm a blank slate. Can you guys help?
