I was wondering what how well a GTX 670 ($418) would perform within Skyrim which is heavily modded (High-end ENBS and Loads of texture enhancing mods) or should I spent an extra $80 for an Gigabyte GTX 670 4gb ($498) or maybe a GTX 680 ($550).
My current build:
Phenom ii x4 965 Black Edition (Upgrading to i5 3570k or i7 3770k coming April) with a Hyper 212 Evo also overclocked to 3.8ghz.
Seasonic S12 II Bronze 620w (Is that enough to power the new GPU?)
GA-870A-UD3 (Upgrading to support my new Intel CPU)
Thermaltake v6 BlacX
It HIGHLY depends on the mods. Some hd texture mods will be quite a bit demanding but if you couple those with landscape and render distance mods, it can get EXTREMELY demanding very fast. Skyrim is currently the most graphically intensive game I play and i have a 3770k with a EVGA gtx 680 superclocked. But that is just because im running 87 mods right now. It really depends on how many mods you use and which ones they are.
