Fallout3/New Vegas/Skyrim - Which to get?

Is New Vegas easier to run? I've been skipping playing Skyrim again (I only got halfway through when I first got it), until I upgrade my 1gb 560 TI to a 2gb card (for mods). I'm guessing New Vegas isn't any easier to run with mods though. I own all 3 of these games with all of their DLC already at least.

I ran New Vegas @ 2048 x 1152 with my laptop @ 30fps with the near and far draw distances expanded through ini tweaks.

Get all 3. The DLC for FO3 and FO:NV were very enjoyable.

You know, I just played Morrowind with the Overhaul 3.0 mod and it looks good, plays great and is very easy to configure, so while it's not on the list, I'd go for New Vegas > Morrowind > Skyrim > FO3.

.. is a link to the mod. While I think Skyrim is a solid game on its own, it still lacks the charm of MW IMO.

Skyrim and New Vegas are both awesome games. Fallout 3 is close, but I think it requires a bit more modding before it's a fun experience.

All of them are amazing with a few mods here and there.

New Vegas is good on its own though, but mods make it god-tier

Let us assume that for the sake of assumption that I am always right.
