Looking for advice on what I can get for a friend who wants to play Skyrim/BF3 on PC.
1680x1050 native res, but obviously can lower to something like (1280x720) if necessary.
Right now he has:
1) i3 3.1ghz
2) 6GB RAM
3) Onboard Video
4) 300w PSU
So, it seems like video card would be the best upgrade, but I doubt his 300w PSU can handle that, so it sounds like he'll need to upgrade them simultaneously, and on a $100 budget.
He's not expecting a lot, I'm pretty sure he would be ok with 30fps on low settings, and I'm hoping around 20fps min for his sake.
I've been thinking maybe:
$30.99 CoolerMaster 460w:
$60.24 Radeon HD 6450:
$69.99 Nvidia GT 430:
I'm pretty lost here though, are there any other better combinations?
