Will this system run Skyrim at decent settings? Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: December 5, 2012 1:21 AM in Graphics & Displays Share catucker1249 December 4, 2012 11:50:08 PM 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 (http://www.findlaptopdriver.com/specs-connolly-e187242-...) 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!

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. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
