I thought specs had been released; gtx 260 was the recommended, I had heard.

2x5770s should be ok, may struggle when heavy mods come out but for the vanilla game I'd expect max maybe dropping a couple of settings.

Skyrim will be Steamworks so just use the built in browser to search online. (I can't stand it either but it's easier to get to and save going to desktop) That said, 4GB may struggle when it comes to heavy mods, but that's a thought for later.

For what it's worth there isn't a single card set up the 860 would bottleneck, not sure about multi-card configs.

Not sure about where to order in the states, but I just changed my preorder from Amazon to Asda (Walmart for you guys?) I'd recommend getting it as a physical disc as

a) Comes with a preorder bonus (cloth map)
b) Is Steamworks so the digital copy has no benefit
c) No need to download, could be a moot point but some people still don't have a decent internet speed.
d) It's much cheaper!

Just pre-ordered Skyrim for £22

Holy cow, 22 Pounds. Nice! That is approximately $35 Canadian right now.

I guess I really need to shop around. I'm unfamiliar with Asda, but there's certainly lots of walmarts, ebgames [gamestop], futureshop etc. What I've seen thus far though, is $60 for a physical copy as well, which matches Steam price.

Thanks for the tips on the in-Steam browser, I'm new to Steam so didn't know that. I'll contemplate upgrading another 4GB ram if that becomes an issue.

Just look around, usually when it comes to new releases Steam is the last place to go. Especially as the game is Steamworks you can shop around

The RAM shouldn't really be an issue, not until you start trying to load huge textures etc.

BTW the above advice was given assuming you have 1GB 5770s...
