GTX 460 1GB + Quad Core + 8GB RAM - So why does Skyrim have lag spikes
Hi guys I recently upgraded my graphics card (first a 6850 then settled on a GTX 460 because of Mass Effect 3 issues with 6850)
But I have a huge annoyance - Skyrim has lag spikes.
None of the fixes I found online have worked so far.
I have an AMD Phenom II X4 3.2Ghz GeForce GTX 460 1GB 192bit version 8GB RAM
I feel like I should be able to play it on High settings without the lag. It happens especially when I move the mouse around to look at the scenery (I play 3rd person) But sometimes even when just running in straight line.
FPS drops suddenly, it's like a hiccup. Then it continues fine.
I tried it just for kicks on Low settings and it didn't have the problem, but I just can't believe high settings would cause such lag spikes, I feel like my system is pretty decent.
Anyone have some advice they know for sure it can help? Maybe someone with a similar build can show me their ini's? I'm going crazy editing the inis back and forth.
