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.

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
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
