Stutter/Lag bethesda

Ive recently built a mid-high end gaming pc to mainly play skyrim and other bethesda games

After trying skyrim on high and fallout new vegas on very high both have occasional stutter or lag every 10 seconds extremely annoying ive tryed many performance mods changing settings a bit and none have really helped much

i also overclocked my gpu and i didnt see any improvement in my fps

Also according to MSI afterburner im getting

60-59 fps in buildings
60-30 outside

and it still stutters a bit while in buildings this is skyrim btw

SPECS:

CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 250
Mobo: ASUS M4A88T-M
Ram: 4GB
HDD: SEAGATE 500GB
GPU: POWERCOLOR ATI HD 6850
PSU: COOLER EXTREME POWER 500W

More about stutter bethesda
  1. Skyrim loves fast processors, I think that fallout does too. A dual core is borderline for gaming these days.
  2. I suppose i could overclock my cpu
  3. be careful, it slooks like you a gpu heavy build there, which is good, but your cpu is too light. Overlcoking the CPU may cause the GPU to pull more power and i'm not sure about your PSU.
  4. Well i can atleast overclock it a bit see if it helps and if it doesnt i no that its not the cause of the problem
  5. look at toms skyrim review to see how it scales with clock speed
  6. sorry to tell you, but that computer is not very good for playing CPU bound bethesda games. The only mid-high component in your specs is your graphics card.

    do some research and overclock if possible, otherwise, if your mobo is AM3, upgrade to a phenom II

    Even so fallout new vegas shouldnt be a problem even with my cpu im getting max 75 fps and it still stutters slightly
  8. it probably still stutters slightly because of your cpu.
