Closed Skyrim 1-2 FPS Tags: PC gaming FPS Skyrim Video Games Product Last response: December 28, 2011 9:08 AM in Video Games Share Confused one December 26, 2011 11:28:19 PM Hello, I recently bought Skyrim, but the game is unplayable. I'm getting only 1-2 FPS. Any ideas on why this is happening or what I can do about it? Windows Vista 32-bit SP2 2 GB RAM AND Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ 2.00 GHz Hard Drive free space 150 GB (after installing Skyrim) DirectX v10 NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 -- Approx. Total Memory 825 MB More about : skyrim fps kjsfnkwl December 27, 2011 12:22:06 AM I suppose your integrated graphics just can't handle it. Getting a real graphics card would be the only solution. Best solution r0aringdrag0n December 28, 2011 1:05:59 AM Agree with kjs whatever the rest is...you need another gfx card. Minimum I recommend is the Radeon 5450 @ $30 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or you can go with this at a high price for a more future proof system: Radeon 6670 $75: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
