  1. Skyrim is a game where you need to have both a good cpu and a good gpu.
    The cards that you stated above both are good enough for skyrim.

    In this benchmark both setups use the same graphics card but you can sure see the significant difference.
  2. If it's just for Skyrim, you could go a little cheaper. A GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7870 would be sufficient. The only exception is if you do very heavy texture modding, the extra memory on the HD 7950 may be advantageous.
  3. the extra 1gig of vram and overclocked 7950 to 7970 levels well def be cheaper and a better bang for the bucks, :) i say 7950
  4. I play with a GTX570 and I get frustrated. The load on the GPU only gets hit ~25-60%, but with lots of mods the ram usage just gets pegged. So it is not that you need a super high end GPU setup to play... but the more ram the better.
    2GB minimum, preferably 3GB
  5. the hd textures modes can take 2gigs or a bit more of vram so yeah, what u expect.
  6. i have the fx 6100 cpu i was thinking of the gpu 7870 or the 7950
