Cool. Make sure to come back and report your findings!
I just noticed something in that Toms Hardware review of Skyrim for CPU requirements...
"This game clearly relies on CPU power, and you need a Sandy Bridge-based Core i3 at 3 GHz or a Phenom II at 3.5 GHz to provide a minimum 30 FPS. Bear in mind that we're using the ultra detail setting here, and processing requirements drop significantly as you start stepping back. So, you can make due with a less potent chip when you dial in detail options appropriately."
Well yeah, lowering settings to high from ultra should make this run 60fps+ on most CPU platforms. Also I'm sure using Ultra detail on 3 monitors will again hit my GPU bottleneck before the CPU.
So I think my point stands. :)
