  1. I just got the Acer aspire AX-1470 EF30P for X-mas And I am wondering how well skyrim will operate on it.

    It has the AMD dual core A4-3400 processor

    Radeon HD 6450 and integrated 6410D

    4gb of RAM (at the moment)

    How well do you think it will run?

    If not very well then which part of it do I need to upgrade?

    no , i think you can run it well on ( low - medium) setting with no AA

    I can see that the graphics card is the weak spot on this computer, which graphics cards can I add to this computer and which ones will allow it to run skyrim on relatively high settings? Also what kind of improvement will overclocking any of the components make?

    yes , the HD 4890 is faster than the hd 6750 but it doesn't support Directx 11

    Are you sure that the processor and everything else in the computer could handle ultra?

    yep , with your cpu and ram you can run the game on 40 average fps, but maybe you need a new power supply for the new graphics card

    the 2 GB DDR3 one or the 1 GB DDR5 one?

    go with 1GB DDR5 , it is much faster and will give you more fps

    Believe me it can run it with MEDIUM settings (not LOW) WITH AA (but FXAA not Defferred) on 1366x768 resolution. :D

    Sorry your res is better than mine so I guess you have to use some LOW settings. Happy gaming :D

    are you serious? lol man! on ULTRA? calm down xD , LOW-MEDIUM settings is ok :D (shadows LOW, textures LOW or MEDIUM (with testing) and others MEDIUM).
