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.

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.

I have:

Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
Memory: Dual Channel 4 MB DDR2
Graphics Card:: NVidia GeForce N250GTS Twin Frozr 1G
Monitor Size: 19"

I can not max it or use the HD DLC. Images don't look that bad though.

I'm glad your opinion differs from mine. What a boring place this world would be if it didn't.

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.

Edit: forgot to mention my resolution is 1920x1080

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
