Do any of these PCI cards work with my mobo and will it run Skyrim on lower settings?

just realized I can't post links yet. I was looking at Micro Center under PCI cards.

Just being honest here... I think you should probably forgo playing Skyrim on that machine. You are severely lacking both in the CPU and Memory areas and I don't think putting the beefiest PCI video card in the world will make it playable. I'd hate for your first experience with this great game to be on this machine.

The minimum requirements for Skyrim is a dual core processor and 2GB RAM so you should really buy/build a new PC if you want to play it.

TS just pushed a frontpage article on a $330 Phenom II X4 system. Its integrated graphics will play Skyrim at lower res (at least I'd guess). And for $50-200 more you could play it at basically any resolution you wanted.
