I bought Skyrim during the Steam Holiday sale for a cheap price.Ever since I progressed further in the game,I started to experience tons of lag when fighting in an area with numerous npcs.Some of the notable examples are frame drop rates resulting in freezing for a few seconds.I've also got a few mods installed,at around 50.There is a lack of any HD mods that replaces the landscape,only armor and weapon retextures.Is it possibly time to upgrade my specs?
