No, thats decent enough fps. I'm lucky when i get 20. One thing you should worry about is stuttering where the game stops for a split second and then starts up again. If your there, your just fine.

i know of a mod that helped me get to that framerate i was once at 20fps till i got this mod it makes run like oblivion if you could run oblivion on high settings this mod should prove to be of great help and makes grapics look better i can give you a link if you wish

"A high frame rate still does not guarantee fluid movements, especially on hardware with more than one GPU. This effect is known as" micro stuttering". Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frame_rate
Thomas Edison recommended a minimum of 46 FPS to prevent eye fatigue. (ibid)
So, you might want to take more frequent breaks especially if you are playing in 1st person. Also, lighting is important. Corrrectly back lighting the monitor, like a T.V., is preferable and could reduce aspirin consumption.
The above linked article also dispels many myths regarding FPS.

Sure that'd be great. I probably allready gots it because i'm running skyrim on a notebook, hehe. It runs though! It's runs...

Where do you find the FPS you may be running the game in? I've tried to look for such an animal and haven't been able to find such a diagnosis, [WIN XP SP3]. It sure would be nice to know how poorly the game is really running.... ie: the lag I play with now (since October 30th Steam update) requires my supply of dramamine to be stocked if I intend to play longer than 1 hr. Actually I gave up the game for almost two months it was so bad, and resorted to purchasing a new VC which was a nominal improvement.

My normal play time was, by far, much longer than that before all the lag set in. Typically I could put in a few days, if the content was interesting enough, before total sleep deprivation set in; but then again, I'm an old gamer and mod builder from way back, not to mention I exist in 'night-shift' mode.

Ergo, if any of you have noticed prior posts I've made regarding the lag issue with Skyrim, you'll be able to understand my disappointment with such a promising game. It would seem most players experience some lag if not more than they desire, and thusly the discussion on FPS.
