    Exclamation Computer build for Elder Scrolls online???

    Hey all,

    I plan on playing TESO whenever it comes but I dont feel like my current computer build wont hold up. I am currently getting about 40-50 fps in WoW and a lot less - 20 or so whenever I raid or bg's. (and this is all on the lowest settings) I am wanting to upgrade for TESO so I can actually play it with at least half decent settings and still have a at least 40-50 FPS whenever I am playing with a larger group although I really dont want to spend more than 500
    - 700 on upgrades or to build a new computer. I understand that the system requirements for TESO have not been released but I was hoping someone could maybe compare it to how skyrim performs on PC.

    So my main questions are,

    1. Will $500 - 700 even build a new computer or upgrade my current one enough to play TESO or Skyrim?
    2. And if so, would you recommend trying to upgrade my current system or build a new one? Such as the $500 dolphin build of the month posted by mmo-champion.

    1) We don't even know TESO system requerments. (Skyrim preformance has nothing to do with TESO).
    2) Before TESO release lotta stuff will be released and lotta stuff will be much cheaper.

    Asked and answered. It's way too soon to get to specifics on this. Bethesda will say what they are when they say what they are although this should be available once the beta goes live.

    For now, this is the wrong forum for this to boot, so closing.

    There's a TES Online thread in the video games forum where you can probably find out more about the game.

    Start here:
