I'll PM you the details but you should try and have some sympathy for those who haven't played yet and try and be more thoughtful of spoilers.

To disable Vsync add "iPresentInterval=0" under the Display section in the Skyrim.ini file in your Users/USERNAME/My Documents/My Games/Skyrim folder.

On one HD5770 I am getting roughly 40-45FPS. I believe that once CrossFireX is updated I will be able to run this at Ultra pretty easily. I'm finding Anti Aliasing to be a big performance hit so I turned it off and just run FXAA instead.

Here's a picture of what my settings get the game looking like, at a mix of High-Ultra settings along with some graphical tweaks, while being at respectable frame rates to play:

0B5195DC4993050766A75595A98DF8C4AA71C090

My settings:

First off if you have CrossFireX disable it, or play in Windowed mode. Not sure about SLI as I don't use it but if you have scaling problems then the same applies. If you can get it to scale somehow then by all means do so.

Ini tweaks

Disable mouse smoothing.

bMouseAcceleration=0

Disable Vsync.

Added iPresentInterval=0 to the bottom of the [Display] section.

Graphical tweaks

Changed the following to improve shadows.

bTreesReceiveShadows=1
bDrawLandShadows=1

Added the following to the SkyrimPrefs.ini to improve the quality of water reflections.

bUseWaterReflectionBlur=1
bReflectExplosions=1
iWaterBlurAmount=4
bAutoWaterSilhouetteReflections=0
bForceHighDetailReflections=1

Graphics Adaptor and Resolution

Graphics Adaptor: HD5770
Aspect Ratio: 16:9

Anti Aliasing: Off (Best Performance)
Anisotropic Filtering: 16
Windowed Mode: Unchecked

Hope that helps anyone struggling to get the game running at a reasonable framerate.

Tried that, and I was also running lower settings than you posted, and my single 6970 is running 80-90% usage, on just medium grade settings. The results I got is similar to eggy88s, meaning I got about the same performance with 2, just a little bit less GPU usage on both cards. Example, Witcher 2 on medium settings, my 2 GPUs are working 40-50%, and it looks better and runs better than skyrim on medium.
