Skyrim: Running Slower Than A Game of Monopoly
I'm attempting to run Skyrim on an Alienware M17xR4 laptop, and the results are... how would you say, poor.

The settings are turned down to the absolute lowest and it's still lagging playing on a poorly set-up American Counter-Strike server. Could I get some help here?

OS: Windows 8.1 64-bit (6.3, build 9600)
Processor: Intel Core i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.40GHz (8 CPUs)
Random Access Memory: 16.0 GB
Video Card: AMD Radeon HD 7970M

EDIT: So after some closer inspection... it turns out that I've been using the integrated graphics. After disabling them, the results were worse.

Window's power setting are probably set to power saver hence the poor performance.
