Skyrim Graphics Glitches, Skipping, or Stutters
Does anyone have graphic glitches? My game stutters and skips. I started a new character recently and the opening scene in Helgen was very glitchy. In the tower before you jump to the inn, the dragon opned his mouth and no fire came out. Characters (including mine) keep skipping movements. Exmaple, instead of a smooth transition looking right to left, it will jump without the showing movement. These glithces are persistent in the whole game now, not just the opening area.
My FPS drops suddenly when these skips happen. My PC is a rockstar; $4000 Alienware rig with 680s in SLI. It's not the hardware. Drivers are current. I didn't have any problem until recently (about two months ago or so).
Also sometimes the sound doesn't match what is happening or it just stops altogether. Did Skyrim get messed up with the last patch?
Please help! The graphic problems are really distracting!
