Video Card Upgrade Advice

  1. So, I recently decided I was going to upgrade my video card. Mostly because I have noticed a huge difference between my friends Skyrim game quality than my own. I am thinking of getting this card...​


    My system specs are pretty much the same as when I bought it.
    Its a HP pavilion a6319fh PC. Everything is the same with the exception of my graphics card and power supply. My current graphics card is the ATI Radeon 4600 series. ​

    My big questions are:

    • Will this card work with my machine?
    • Will this card run Skyrim on Ultra settings in vanilla?
    • Will this card be able to support possible heavy scripting and modding?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for any help :D

    Yeah, it should run Skyrim maxed out @ 1920x1080

    Don't know what you mean by heavy scripting/modding. If in relation to Skyrim - yes it'll handle some mods.

    Some mods use alot of scripts, this can cause some machines to lose frames.
