View Full Version : Recommended Settings and My Rig

I'm unsure if my PC will be able to run this game with the recommended settings.
Based on my settings, do you guys think I could run Skyrim using recommended+ settings?

AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 965 Processor 3.40 GHz
ATI Radeon 5670 (I have two using Crossfire X)
4GB Ram
1.25TB (two hard drives)
Windows 7 (64-bit)

If I look at your system and comparing them to the recommended specs on that site (I'm assuming they are correct, but they are not officially known yet (I believe)), your PC will probably be somewhere between minimum and recommended.

Crossfired 5670s are roughly close to a single 5770. You definitely should be able to run the game somewhere between medium and high graphics settings, possibly by turning shadow quality down while maxing everything else out.

Your resolution is important, you may be able to max the game at lower resolutions while you may be looking at medium/high at high resolutions.

Also Skyrim, like many other games, may have issues with dual GPU set ups which would cripple your performance.

just depends on if the game support crossfire or not, considering it's a console port I think you're going to have trouble with that.

Thanks for the replies guys. In order for me to play Deus Ex: Human Revolution on mid/high graphics, I had to turn my settings down to 1024x720 instead of 1920x1024. I may replace my monitor with a 1280x720 monitor for Skyrim and set my current 1920x1024 monitor up with the ole Xbox 360.
Anyhow, thanks for the replies guys. :)
