My framerate on skyrim is super bad. It looks really shaky and choppy when i move yet i have a pretty good computer.
Here are my specs:
CPU: AMD FX(tm)-4100 Quad-Core Processor
RAM: 8.2 GB
CPU speed: 3.6 GHz
Video card: AMD Radeon HD 6570
I'm running no background application and i have no mods. Well i did. I downloaded the game free from malaysia bay then got a few mods, after playing for a while i noticed the lag. so i uninstalled everything and bought it off steam, hoping that the problem was just because of a bad file yet still its laggy.
Should i do a factory reset then download skyrim again?
My operating system is 64 bit and my resolution is 1680 x 1050.
It's not an actual framerate problem. My framerate should be around 40. But it looks about 10 because of the lag. Fraps actually says my framerate is 40.

Close fraps while playing? That could be a factor, maybe try updating your graphics cards drivers.

Update drivers and play skyrim without mods and see what happens
