Default Skyrim .ini tweaks

Please put your recommended .ini tweaks here.

Also, please specify:
1. GPU
2. CPU
3. Playing resolution
4. Settings
5. FPS
6. Any instability issues from your tweaks

Couple pics would be appreciated too... let's optimize this puppy!

You can still download it from D2D (like I did). When you install it, it loads Steam and asks for your key code and copies the files to the Steam directory like all other games. Same thing happens for the retail boxed version.

For me it was cheaper on D2D because of the 15% members discount on top of the pre-purchase sale.

arh ok...i got it from game gameman since they had 10% discount so it came out to something like 50USD for me vs steams $90USD...so i saved $40 dollars....yea...forty ****ing dollars!.

if batman uses steamworks then i will get it from them too, not going to get it at the current ridiculous price of $100 which they bumped up from $39..wtf $60 price markup??

I was lucky and got Batman when it was 39. Can't believe all this price changing, then there was the release date nonsense with Renegade Ops where it was bumped back 4 or 5 times each time the release date hit.

Pre-ordered batman at $39 with the discount for owning Arkham asylum. No idea why it went up. I'm thinking I'll just buy Skyrim from the shops, any game on Steam over $80 is stupid to me. I'm ok paying $80 for a hard copy, but not for just dl.
