Last updated at 23:23, 21 Feb 2013 Uploaded at 0:47, 12 Feb 2013

After trying out a couple of performance tweakers like ATTK, Multi Thread CPU tweak files which i have tested with skyrim performance monitor i'm posting my SkyrimPrefs.ini that provides me with 25-29 FPS outside without drops etc. and more inside,
hope this helps others with this setup to enjoy the game on the roads.

Note: i never played skyrim without SSD drive.

Other performance increasing mods i can recommend (i didn't recommend ATTK and others since they didn't work for my setup)
Revamped Exterior Fog - Revamped Exterior Fog by Greg Manthey - gargorias
Colorful Lights - No Shadows - More FPS - ColorfulLightsNoShadows-v1b by TRoaches
Remove Interior Fog V2 - Remove Interior Fog V2 - Skyrim by rgabriel15
Skyrim Performance Monitor by Sir Garnon - it helps checking whether there is improvement and it shows FPS on top left during play.
NEW! 22.02.2013 - Immersive Saturation Boost - by Aplestormy - improves graphic colors with no hit to FPS. http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/32064

if you want to compare the ini files i recommend notepad++ with compare plugin (from NPP plugin manager)
