I purchased a second hand PC to see if I can get away form console gaming.

It has 8gb RAM and an Asus HD6670 graphics card.

It plays command and conquer which I am happy about (a bit of nostalgia).

My question is will it play better games like Skyrim?

Thank you in advance for any help.

Cheers for that. I honestly have no clue about PC's but learning as I go. I have an xbox one and ps4 but PC's no clue lol Would you know what a better graphics card would be that would not be overly expensive as I just starting out on PC?

video there on youtube 6670 playing Skyrim, looks low res and the frame rate looks to be easily below 30FPS, my advice would be to upgrade to the new 1050 or 1050ti if your looking for budget play, hell even a cheap 2nd hand 750ti might do.

Bare in mind, that's being captured internally on some pretty old hardware, and that saps a lot of performance. It should be alright under normal circumstances.

Cheers for the response! It is really just before I download Skyrim I would like to ensure that my system will play it. Best place to get a second hand 750ti?

I'd put in a no bet. 6670 isn't going to get you far at all. Put in the extra few quids and get maybe a GTX970. They go for around £120 now, which for the power, is insane. Check the FS/FT area.

Prob eBay, but i would consider what your looking to want in the future, as mentions a 970GTX might serve you better again try eBay or the FS/FT side of this site.

I build gaming PC's and the first thing I would do before you consider a change of graphic card is will my power supply handle it ? has it got the right connection? is it bronze or gold certified? is it a cheap and nasty power supply? do i need a new power supply first?.

I played Skyrim on a HD 5870 with 6GB of ram and an old Phenom II X6 1035T, with no problems at all and didn't feel that the experience was marred, so it's always better to check your own experience first. Of course you'd struggle with the remaster that was released yesterday but old Skyrim should be ok.

This topic on gamefaqs says to expect Medium/High settings with your GPU.
