I was wondering if My computer was getting bad fps due to the fact that the cpu is not good enough or some other reason. It basically just doesn't want to run skyrim on anything other than low. (using a 1080p resolution). I swear I have seen people on youtube using 3470's on games like battlefield and doing fine.
Specs are:
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM

Intel Core i5-3470 Ivy Bridge 3.2GHz (3.6GHz Turbo Boost)

SAPPHIRE 100352-2L Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

GeIL EVO Veloce Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model GEV38GB1600C9DC

ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

with new builds like your fist off make sure your running the newest intel mb chipset drivers. if there not all installed the new gpy wont run right and you be runniing off the onboard gpu. the second is make sure that the ipgpu is the second boot device not the first and that you have the monitor plug into the gpu video port not the onboard video port.

Good advice. I was just about to write that after I saw it, but I saw you already had that covered.

Thank you so much for that, it turns out I was hooked up to the motherboard. I feel so stupid yet so happy at the same time. Thank you a thousand times over.
