Hello Guys, i seek for your help, because i have a really strange problem. While playing other games such like Dishonored, Far Cry 2 and Far Cry 3(runs on very high at 40-60 fps), i cannot seem to play Skyrim very well, most of the times goes to bellow 30 fps at high settings in the intro section, by looking at trees or simply entenring combat with 2 or more enemies, it's really weird.

My PC Specs are:
CPU: Core 2 Quad Q9550 @2.83Ghz(Stock) Temps(Idle): 42 38 39 38 / Temps(Load): 60 59 58 59 in Celcius
GPU: VTX3D Radeon HD 7870 GHZ Edition(OC 1100Mhz / 1225) Temp(idle): 38 / Temp(load): 50/54 in Celcius
RAM: 6G 1333 MHZ

I seem to play nice in other games but with Skyrim and other Bethesda games, just can't...

Please tell me if there is something wrong.

Happy New Year

Looks like it might be a CPU bottleneck. I heard that Skyrim is very heavy on the CPU.
