I haven't had a ton of time to play the game and I only just started tinkering with enchanting cuz i heard it was awesome. Haven't even touched smithing. But I keep hearing how these make you WAY overpowered. I'm still interested in getting into them but how so?

Also any advice on how to quickly level up enchanting or what perks I should def take? I'm lvl 25 or so and so far all my perks have gone to sneak/pickpocket/archery

Nobody is forcing anyone to abuse the smithing/enchanting system. So yes, it breaks the game if you choose to abuse it.

If the only skills you raise are smithing and enchanting you will get abused.

You need to raise combat skills as well. Even if the ratio is very heavily in favor of smithing and enchanting you need some kind of armor blocking or weapon skill perks.

Or magic if you want to go the sissy route.

This is because your enemies will have these skills leveled up as they scale to the range of your level. (it's more detailed than that)

So maybe pick up a few ranks in some form of combat or armor skill each level. Dont just spam iron daggers.

Make iron daggers to level smithing, buy tons of petty soul gems from merchants and then get a soul trap weapon. Go to town on weak enemies to fill the gems, enchant the daggers you made, sell them, repeat.
you must beat the dead horse till it rides itself to oblivion~ BAMF__

Also depends like the other dude said how you use it.

It's enchanting more than smithing that's a problem.
But it depend if you want to role play or just walk through everything.

IMO if you wanted to just walk over everything there is no need o even go through the trouble of doing this just lower the difficulty.

Or magic if you are a real man who doesn't even bother with weapons.

Fix'd.
