One thing I'm enamored by skyrim is its extraordinary soundtrack. I had to exit the game to download the floating copy around the net and find the track that I was looking for and put it on repeat for hours. EPIC score. Jeremy Soule does it again.
i've got a 6970 (which is similar to your GTX570 in perf.) and also run the game @ 2560x1440 and the card is really struggling at that res, i'd go crossfire if the 6970 wasn't so hot and loud. once new cards come out i'll go crossfire/sli depending on who brings out the most powerful GPU...
Is Skyrim anything like Oblivion? I hated Oblivion (on the PC) - measly character animations and a dialogue system that left much to be desired (Rumors?). Enjoying BF3 very much (9/10). Would've given it a 9.5 if it wasn't for the mediocre SP.
Very short version; Morrowind+fallout 3
I'm not much of a rpg fan but i absolutely loved the way morrowind played. Being a old skool fallout fan i loved fallout 3.
I really enjoy that the flow of the story feels more like morrowind than oblivion and the exploring/dungeons feel more like fallout 3 than oblivion.
Oblivion was good but very static. Dungeons and oblivion gates where fun but repetitive. A daedric great sword with soul steal+life leech and a black soul gem was way to easy... Thats without the crazy bufs from enchanted daedric armor
I might even sit this one out, hell maybe even beyond the story line....
