Hi, I want to get at least above 50 fps on Skyrim at 1080p with max settings on everything, and even HD texture mods.
I will be running an i5 3570k and 8GB of ram with this.

You have a pretty good CPU.
CPU is more important in Skyrim.

As for a GPU, you can get a GTX 660 Ti\7950
Not to mention you should get a 3GB Model.
As Skyrim HD Mods use alot of VRAM.

Would be good if you get a GTX 670.

if your just talking about the official high res texture pack, then a 2gb model is fine, it doesnt use more than 1.5gb vram. If your talking about community mods, then they can use more vram. my gtx660 2gb runs 60fps constant on ultra with high res texture pack 1080p. I dont run many other mods though.

I run a ton of high-res and ENB mods on my copy of Skyrim at 1080p and get a solid 30+ FPS on a 7870 XT.

So would my i5-4590 and SAPPHIRE DUAL-X Radeon R9 do good?
