Looking for budget GPU - Athlon II x2 System Tags: GPUs Oblivion Graphics Last response: March 19, 2013 8:04 PM in Graphics & Displays Share firefoxx04 March 19, 2013 9:40:44 AM Hey guys. My brother has taken an interest in playing Oblivion and Skyrim on our office computer. Athlon II x2 3ghz 4gb 1333mhz ddr3 460W cooler master psu Gigabyte micro atx board (cant remember which, it has 1 pci E slot and two regular pci slots. Hes using the integrated graphics right now and it is not that great. He has to play 800x600 or so resolution as recommended by oblivion. I dont even want to try skyrim until I have a dedicated gpu. Ive been looking at this card - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... It would be nice to not need external power (the psu has 1 6pin pciE plug, however.) Im not looking for mind blowing resolution and frame rates. What do you guys think?

I ordered the card. The price seems a bit right, my 6850 runs skyrim much better than I require, so i assume we will be satisfied. Always nice to have a second opinion. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
