Thats rather weak card from ATI radeon
In my opinion overclocking GPU may help
Also buying a new card might be a solution but if you don't have any money then overclocking should give you few extra FPS if done correctly with AMD catalyst .
Btw i don't understand . Do you have 2 cards in crossfire ? Or you don't know which series you have ?

You should download program called GPUz i think
It is small . You run it and it shows you (usually) what kind of graphic card you have .

ATI radeon HD 6670 should run it fine for an average price, but that also depends on your psu too?

thanks ill remember that later,since ive got to work out why when i launch skyrim that at the menu theres a big red diamond with a exclamation mark there on the screen.

That exclamation mark usually means missing texture or model, probably corrupted game data.
I don't know of patch that can correct this, for this doesnť look like error in the game code, but error in your installation, so you would have to find the textures and models of ALL missing objects and replace them manually.

Easiest way should be reinstalling the game. If the problem isn't in your copy of the game itself, it should help you

Perhaps you should get 5770/50 if you can find one . But 6670 is good too .

Play at a lower resolution and lowers the Graphics quality settings. And like a few other people said OC your GPU and that should give you a small boost.
