See this link:
I would not use the word unbelievable you are talking about a low performing setup at best.

You have an AMD processor with integrated graphics - your performance will be low at best, meaning it will play starcraft probably on low settings. You can connect it to a TV using and HDMI cable

I would be very cautious of that. I believe skyrim is very CPU demanding and that CPU is not high end.

According to my estimates, you can build that machine for about $450 (not sure about Euro pricing). Its an ok deal.
