Not really. That's the card I had before I upgraded to a 480 GTX, and the 260 would not max it.
But it's really down to your CPU, believe it or not. Skyrim does an insane (read: lazy programmers) amount of work on the CPU, so even with my 480 it still has some lag issues in regards to lots of shadows. --- Could be worse, they could have been American givers and you would have been smothered in small pox. -fakenamefignuts on Indian-Giving.

I have that card. I can run on high, with some nice mods too. If you're building a budget PC, it's worth it. --- http://cbssports.com/images/blogs/joe-paterno-passes-away-eof.jpg RIP, Joe Paterno. Legends never die.
I can not max it or use the HD DLC. Images don't look that bad though.

I have: I5 2500 8gb ram Evga gtx 260
Running on all high, maxed view distances for everything, never dips below 30 fps. 260 is still a fairly strong card and as others have said, skyrim is pretty CPU dependent.

I run on AMD Phenom II X4 925 (2.8 ghz x 4) 8 GB Ram NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 SE I run in full HD
I can run it on High without any issues. I can max it out, but I do notice a drop in frame rate where I am encouraged to switch back --- Chrono1219 The beautiful genius who graduated from Harvard as a child and has an IQ of 1.3^googolplex.
