Hello,

My 11 year old wants me to upgrade his PC for Xmas so that he can play Skyrim. His current PC is as follows:

G31MX motherboard
Dual core Celeron E3300 2.5ghz
1GB DDR2

Please can someone advise me whether I need to upgrade RAM to 4 GB and whether I can put a 1 GB graphics card in his PC and if we can, whether it would run Skyrim?

We have limited resources as he is one of four children and I can't afford to waste money buying things for his PC for it still not to work.

Any advice is really appreciated

Thanks
Mark

Hi, first of all yeah, you would really need at least 4gb of ram, second, what power supply unit do you have? and third whats your total budget?
