Hmm, friend is still having issues with the game. He has updated all drivers, and the game is patched. His computer is restarting after about 3 minutes in game.
In progress.

I am seeing about the same framerates as you with a single 5870 (sig rig eyefinity edition)... game maxed out on ultra, maxed out AA/AF forced via drivers, roughly 3.5GBs of mods, vsync on, custom shadow ini, no FXAA, both TESVAL & SkyBoost, and Simple Borderless Window Mod (without this I stutter no matter what I do).

-60+ FPS indoors always
-50-60FPS in the "wilderness" (rarely dips below 55)\
-35-60FPS in towns depending on the weather and how much action is going on
-36FPS at the top of the stairs in Whiterun (this was 23 before TESVAL/Skyboost)

I am glad I didn't take the plunge a few weeks back for a 580 because the acceleration layers have made this game playable for me with maxed out settings. Hopefully you can pin down the stuttering issue because you should be blowing my setup out of the water.

I am assuming you have tried forcing AA through your drivers vs the game right? I don't have an NVIDIA card anymore so I am in the dark on this one.

I have been getting so many mixed messages about where is best to force AA. Boris on the ENB site says to turn it all off when using FXAA and/or ENB , but that doesn't seem to cut it. I've tried both application controlled exclusively and forced through the Nvidia control panel and I'm stuck at less than 30FPS at 1920x1200 at 4AA. That's with AO on quality, no transparency AA and a healthy OC on my card. I am going to look into that borderless window mod.

Until Bethesda addresses AOE FF, they will also go down or aggro you if you hit them with an attack or spell. I decimated my entire army on my Summoner save with a couple of ill placed chain lightnings. If you are playing an in your face character or some sort of caster, followers can be great, especially early game when you need a decoy to take enemy aggro. For casters however, if you are going Wizard as opposed to Cleric or Illusionist, you will want to lose your follower once you are able to spam master level spells since all of them have a huge AOE.
PS Important NPC's are typically flagged as essential and cannot die to non-player aggro. If you are concerned, you can also make them essential through the use of console commands.

thanks.

yeah im a khajit and most of the time im a stealth bow sniper. when i use magic its usually dual casting destruction spells but i always end up hurting some NPC and turning them on me haha. i havnt gone all out mage before, will do that next run i think.

i do tend to take battles on head on once im spotted, but yeah i always found companions as a hindrance rather than helpful, for the reasons you mentioned and then some. was just wondering if they are sort of being incorporated into the game as an essential or critical part of it. hope not. even in Fallout i dont use followers, well i did for the perks but i always told them to stay in a safe house. big open games like, cant stand AI help.

now if this game was online co-op, then i dont think i'd ever play another game except Battlefield again haha. thats a total lie but you get my point.

@gtarmanrob: i've been playing as a khajit/stealth/archer as well...without companions (they annoy me) but i think this is just way too overpowered rolleyes.gif
you have that same problem as well?
i started with some simple quests and then went for the money and smithing...made myself a nice deadric armor with enchantments, deadric bow with health drain and stamina drain,
and it feels like i can't die. redface.gif
they never see me, just my arrows.
sometimes it's just getting boring rolleyes.gifthumb.gif

I thought you weren't suppose to run TESVAL and Skyboost together?

I take it that some areas stutter and some areas don't?

I reckon your stuttering is from using 4096 textures, tonight I am removing mine and testing - in fact I am starting from scratch. I will also be creating a new config, keeping my ENB tho. I have run into 1.5gb VRAM usage already and stuttering started last night. I will fix this tonight and post my new config for you and mod list. We have similar setups...

-Under the [Hooking] section add: EnableDynamicOffsetDetection=1
Now you can launch your game, still have your OSD and screenshot/recording features, and not CTD!!

DUDE! HELL YEAH! I was wondering if it was possible! +REP to you, good sir!
