Will Skyrim run on a Nvidia GeForce 320m 256mb?
Asking to see if anybody knows, most people say it should but with a framerate of like 25, which is fine by me. anybody know the answer?

yes, Skyrim only requires a video card with 16mb of VRAM in order to run. Seriously, 256mb?! It isn't worth it to run Skyrim on super low.. I tried it once to test, I couldn't make out a darn thing.

so, that means it will run fine? just don't set the graphics too low?
I can run cs:go with that card, even though it is super low, it works fine.

...where did you get that from? >_>

From the uesp wiki:

Recommended

Windows 7/Vista/XP PC (32 or 64 bit)
Quad-core Intel or AMD CPU processor
4GB System RAM
6GB free HDD (Hard disk drive) space
DirectX 9.0c compatible NVIDIA or AMD ATI video card with 1GB of RAM: Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 or higher; ATI Radeon HD 4890 or higher
DirectX compatible sound card
Internet access for Steam activation

[edit] Minimum System Requirements

Windows 7/Vista/XP PC (32 or 64 bit)
Processor: Intel Dual Core 2.0GHz or equivalent processor (AMD Sempron @ 2.4 GHz)
2GB System RAM
6GB free HDD space
Direct X 9.0c compliant video card with 512 MB of RAM
DirectX compatible sound card
Internet access for Steam activation


Minimum requirement is a video card with 512 mb of VRAM. It could probably play with something weaker, but it may not run very well.

From the useful guide at http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:System_Requirements
you're video card is rated at medium-low settings (but this might be at the assumption of 512 mb of VRAM), so it should run Skyrim. (though perhaps not at a particularly good quality)

I played Deus EX 1 n System Shock 2 on ATI Rage 128 Pro 16mb card on release! Don't diss. :P
hmmm. I will be running it through Wine, so I need to know if the lower card will make it buggy, since it is already very buggy with Wine.

yeah it should work with mininum settings
awesome! thanks!
Look up sharing system ram with Video cards. There may still be something out there that will let you do that.
no, mac sucks, I would get a PC but I don't have the money, plus parents are mac fanboys.
