Props for including the OS price in the build.

yep, but the EVGA GeForce GT 430 1024MB that he put on the minimum specs is horrible for gaming, specially Skyrim!

More power to those who can spend 800-100 but I much rather play it on a 250-300 dollar console. And I know many will disagree. Pc fans act like they have the best system yet they also have to upgrade their machines eve 2-3 years. Plus a lot of oc games are coming to consoles now even MMO yet now many of the exclusives are coming to pc.

its true man, 1000$ to just play games at max, screw that, though my gaming laptop was 1200 (Yes i like portability) I still think its crazy to think everyone would have to spend the same to get good results. heck I play witcher 2 at medium and i spent so much!

tho im gonna get skyrim GOTY edition on my computer Only for the mods, nothing else, otherwise i'd rather play it on my ps3

Regurgitating the same BS you read elsewhere.

I came on here just to find the first "rather play on consoles anyway because blah blah blah exclusives" comment, and lo and behold, you are the winner!

There is a reason why we spend much more on a system to play games (and do other computer related things, because computers arent just for games) and thats because we found a better experience that we enjoy much more. No one is forcing us to play games on a pc. We can all easily go out and buy a ps3 for $250 too. (And I do own a PS3, but do not play it nearly enough to justify it's purchase)

@showtimefolks. Does it bother that people enjoy spending money on PCs? Are you jealous? I've spent little over two grand on my PC in nov of '10, but I also have an Xbox 360 and PS3.

We enjoy cracking the graphics up, modding, tweaking etc, don't be a hater just because you can't afford it!

smart coding by bethesda

so thankful to be able to play it on the pc maxed out

GrumpyVeteran2573d ago

Skyrim won't really need a very powerful system to max it out.

The article said "the i5-2500K also has hyper-threading,".
