Processor: AMD Phenom 9500 2.2 GHz Quad-Core

Graphics: XFX Radeon HD 6850

Ram: 7 GBs

OS: Windows 7 64 bit

Skyrim apparently ran better after some patches...I don't know how your CPU compares to the FX 4100, but this is how that runs it now

Super Mario Kart is the single best Mario Kart ever!
Won't get Battlefield 3 until all DLC is included

I run it with my Pentium D and 5670 and get better graphics than the consoles, even at a pretty nice frame rate.

Steam sales. There are at least 9 every week, including mid week madness and weekend deals.

It'll run fine, Skyrim is not a very demanding game.

I saw someone at my college running Skyrim on a Macbook Pro at about 20-30 fps. A 6850 should have no problem.

Probably very high or max settings with 30 FPS

Processor will probably hold you back a bit.
