    When I try to play I get the T & L hardware message. So I'm going to have to get a graphics card. I know i could use much more ram to. But its either a graphics card or more ram lol. I Was wondering if I could get Skyrim running For under 100 dollars. I can't go a cent over 100. And if I can what should I get? But heres my PC specs. And thank you in advance.

    hp pavilion a630n XP pro
    1272 RAM
    Pentium[R] 4 CPU 2.80 GHz x2
    Integrated graphics
    SATA 500GB Hard drive

    I wouldn't sink any money into that system. Save your $100 toward a new computer. That won't upgrade your current system to anything useful.

    Thanks for the reply. But does anyone else concur? It will be a long time before I can get more money. And this system plays other games very well for no graphics card. Like perfect world, gunz, CSS, Runes of magic. I can run all those almost lag free on low settings. Would a graphics card make a big difference?

    Given the age of the computer, it's unlikely to have a power supply sufficient to power a new card.

    I agree with DoubleHelix, you could do with starting fresh and while it will cost quite a bit, it's better than sinking that $100 in to your current system.

    Yeah, I think they are correct. But if you are able to build a system for yourself, you could make a decent one that plays most games at medium settings for around $300. I recently made one for about that much for a friend.
