everytime I play Skyrim, the game freezes during the first dragon fight. I have already tried changing the wine version, and the windows version, both didn't work. I'd appreciate any help with this :D

How did you install it?  When I installed my copy, I used steam and installed it that way.

What extras did you install?  Not mods, but wine extras?  

Are there any error logs you can provide?

Mods can definitely effect the stability of Skyrim in PlayOnLinux
I suggest using Wine 1.8 or 1.8-staging

Last time I tested Skyrim I need to install these packages:

  • POL_Install_corefonts
  • POL_Install_d3dx10
  • POL_Install_d3dx9
  • POL_Install_tahoma
  • POL_Install_vcrun2008
  • POL_Install_xact

I didn't really have very many problems on my GeForce 550 Ti and Nvidia drivers.
