Agreed pretty well I would say. Obviously with mods you will be a little short on memory however for moderate modding I would say you would be just fine. And AMD cards historically have performed better with Skyrim.
Oooooooh 60ish fps, I like that. I'm probably gonna put Skyrim on my 1000mb hard drive because WoW is already installed on my SSD. I Just want it to run better than the xbox, cause that system gets rather lame. That's also with Direct X 9 o:
Yeah you should be maxing it out at 60fps no problem. I do fine on maxed settings excluding aa/af and view distance @ somewhere hovering around 50fps.
With a that texturepack combiner mod (using the "lite" versions of the mods) I am around 30fps, I do need to turn down some settings like view distance, I think I have it set to 12. Been a while since I played so.
Heres my specs (your cpu is vastly superior)
Athlon 2 x3
etc, etc, etc.
Yea welcome to PC gaming man put your legacy console away. XBOX 360 is 8 years old man Yea World of Warcraft will do quite well with a SSD more snappy performance most assuredly. And yea Skyrim should be just fine on your Terabyte hard drive.
without modding you'll be running skyrim at max or near max with no problems.
with modding... well, you'd have to be really pushing it, but I did manage to almost break my 7970 with a heavily modded skyrim recently (P.S. I did it just to see if it's possible, a lot of the extra shading, textures etc honestly doens't make a big difference)
