Performance issues when connected to the internet?
When I play Skyrim with steam connected to the internet, I always get random (and I mean RANDOM) drops in framerate, but when I disconnect, I run the game at 60FPS constantly. Does anyone else have this problem?

I used to until I got win8.1 and a new comp with 2 terabyte HD and 16 gyg ram with dual quad processor. Works like a charm now and no problems at all.

Try disaabling your AV. While it is disabled just dont allow, by clicking on links, any 3rd party re-directs.

Erm, I'm not sure what that means.

Maybe you have an app or software that does something in the background while you're online? RAM is used for multitasking, after all.

I do notice slight degredation in frame rate, about 3-6. F.P.S. (whilst running Steam), it is probably because Steam is taking a tiny portion of your processing power and memory to save and transcieve internet functions. Anyways; if you are able to run 60 F.P.S. I applaud your set-up. It must be a beast!!! I run about 28 F.P.S.
You must have gifted eyesight to be able to detect degradation above 38 F.P.S.!

When connected to the internet, the degradatoin is extreme (down to less than 15FPS), and random (A fight with a dragon will run 60FPS, but looking at a wall with a torch on it will send my framerate to hell sometimes). And, I only run the game on medium at 800x600. I prefer framerate to graphical fedelity.
