When i start skyrim is auto detects my setting and sets it to high. But when i try and play is is really laggy.
Processor- Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU 530, 2.93GHz
graphics- ATI Radeon HD 5450
Any ideas on what to do to make it less laggy, its still laggy on the lowest setting.
Tom's did a benchmark of Skyrim
at release, and as you can see even the HD 6450 (2-3 times as powerful, depending on the game, as your 5450) struggles at all resolutions.
Your CPU is ok for Skyrim but your video card is severely lacking in power and is why you are experiencing frame lag.
