HELP! Skyrim Low FPS on a High End System!!!

Please help! I'm only averaging 25 FPS in Skyrim on an NVIDIA GTX 765m (2 GB) ... Changing the settings from Low to Ultra does not change the framerate.

I have an ASUS G750JW with Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4700HQ CPU @ 2.40GHz (8 CPUs), 8 GB DDR3 RAM, Windows 8 64 bit. I tried updating the drivers but then the system failed to boot -- so I rolled back to the OEM's drivers.

Should I attempt to install NVIDIA's Beta Drivers??? Other than that, I can't figure out what would be causing the low framerates with my hardware.

Ok, I figured out the answer ... LOL All I needed to do was go to the NVIDIA Control Panel, & under "Manage 3D Settings," turn Vertical Sync off ... Presto! 40 to 50 FPS
