Hi all, looking at my old Dell system here; It is dated with 2gb ddr2 533 ram, radeon 512mb video, and Pentium 4 3ghz w/ hyperthreading

I was looking at speading $100 to upgrade to 4gb ddr2 533 ram, and AMD 5450 2gb video -- do you guys think this would be enough to run Skyrim at decent settings??

My motherboard ( is maxed out at the above (unless I swap the Pen 4 for a Pentium D - didn't think it was worth the money)

I appreciate your help!

Define decent? And at what resolution?

Honestly I would save up for a total rebuild of around $500. Look at the newest system builder on the homepage for a guide.

And don't waste any money on a 5450.
