Why's that? I built a PC back in '06 and owned TES4 for both the 360 and PC.
The advantage of having a spec'd out PC really just came down to the modding scene more so than the graphics.
The modding scene has nothing to do with anything unless you are trying to run an ENB (which is a k!ller because it is sooooo demanding)....Modding generally has to do with Vram which in turn depends on the resolution you are playing at.
The difference between Ultra and high settings is very minimal, yet the impact can k!lls frames for sh*t you don't even notice. AA is the frame k!ller, and honestly, unless you are sitting so close to your Monitor or TV you wouldn't even be able to tell the difference. Mods = increased vram use, if you are lacking in that area it can k!ll frames....ENB's k!lls frames...AA k!lls frames....
Having a powerful processor is another myth..You don't need a i7....Get you a i5..the only game in which a i7 benefits is crysis 3 and for minimal gain......Hell, even go even cheaper and get you a AMD FX line quad core cpu and you'll be fine.....In the end it all depends on what your preference is.....But you don't need to spend a stack to get 60 frames and a good looking experience..
