    1st of all, I am not a big computer nerd and I scrape through with only knowing the basics. I have a computer that I'm hoping will support the TESO game and run it without too many issues. I may need a graphics card upgrade (or wateva you call it) but I'm hoping my processor is good enough not to make me wanna shoot my Pc after 30minutes of online gaming.

    My fear is that I fork out the $100+ for the game, subscribe to it, get really excited and than realize that I really should have invested more into the Pc OR just buy a Ps4 (which is a very real possibility).

    My Pc Specs (please just ask if its not detailed enough..or just plain wrong and I will post more info If I can find it):

    Windows Vista Home Edition
    Processor - Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU E1400 @ 2.00 GHz
    Memory (RAM) - 2.00GB
    System Type - 32-bit Operating System

    Thank You :)

    You really should invest more in a PC, or buy a PS4. If you were to buy upgrades for your PC, what would your budget be?

    If I have to spend more than $200-$300 than I'll just get a ps4... I had my doubts that this Pc would be any good for games.

    playing ESO on minium settings is what someone would call staring at a screen drunk or tired that's what the game will look like on those settings but it is playable you might need a bit more RAM though at least double what it has currently also you would probably need to play on a lower then default resolution

    As far as I'm concerned, no one can tell you yes or no because you didn't offer your GPU, so please explain what GPU you have.

    That being said, your dualcore is somewhat old, and 2GB RAM is barely enough for an OS (especially with Vista) without a game on top of it. I wouldn't hold your breath.

    ESO is unbelievable resource hoggy. With everything on Ultra, I expect my system to get more than ~32FPS. There are lots of settings, so you can change them around to get more frames, but you may have some playability issues.

    GPU = Graphic Processing Unit. It's what handles... the graphics. e.g. it's probably the most important part of your computer if you plan on playing any games.

    Yeah I'd have to agree with everyone on here. If you are trying to run anything like this on PC it's probably not going to be worth it without going (in my estimation) up to at least a Phenom II processor at > 2.5GHz or comparable/greater Intel processor, either 4 or 6 core, at least the GTX620 level of graphics, and 4 preferably 6GB RAM. That ought to get you good not great performance with a medium-high level of detail on most games.

    Anything above that in any area, but preferably in CPU and GPU for Elder Scrolls, will yield just that much more performance at a given level of detail. If this is too expensive then your best bet is probably going to be a console.
