Jerykk, try running your shadows 1 notch down... there isn't a huge visual difference from Ultra down to High.

Yeah, I'm already doing that. I think the issue is that the game is highly CPU-dependent. My CPU is relatively old and only clocked at 3 GHz. Apparently you need at least 4 GHz to get a good framerate in cities.

Skyrim runs fine in any of the cities, on high settings, with my nearly 5 year old 8800GTX @ 1280x1024.

I run the game at 1920x1080, not 1280x1024. I'm sure if I turned down the resolution, I'd get improved framerate but I don't like playing at anything less than 1080p.

On an unrelated note, when I run Arkham City at Very High detail, I get random crashes when leaving the WayneTech menu. It's pretty annoying. Doesn't happen at all when I run at High detail. Not sure if it's an issue with these drivers or with the game itself.
