Hi, I am looking into buying a new computer. I found one that has a lot of good reviews, but I am wondering if it can run a game like Skyrim on normal settings. The card I am curious about is the AMD Radeon HD 6300. Could someone tell me if it would work?

i used google and found this:
"http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/116363-13-windows-skyrim"

it says yes but on low or medium settings.

Your CPU speed also matters.

Here is another site with minimum system requirements:

I used to play Skyrim, then I took an arrow to the knee.

My experience with Skyrim has been that it demands more CPU/RAM than GPU. I'm running a Phenom II x6 CPU on 4 gigs of 1333 mhz ram.
My GPU however is considerably older, its the XFX Radeon 4890. I can run skyrim maxed out settings and still get 30 FPS. My CPU usage goes through the roof and my ram is maxed out, but the GPU activity is considerably lower than it is on MW3.

Card should be fine. Like Salazara says, you'll need lots of RAM and a fast CPU.
