Hail Dragonborn's!

I have some Hardware questions for you all.

What kind of VRAM usage are you getting?

I reach about 1800-1900MB on my sig rig, and occasionally I get some stuttering and it drops to about 1200MB.
This is on a heavily texture modded version of the game.

Also, what is the minimum GPU you guys would use with a Triple Core Athlon II to get decent frames?
This would probably be at 1080p, but with no AA.

For context, I'm thinking of upgrading my 'LAN Rig', which only has a HD4350 tongue.gif

Thanks for your input.

I have as many texture mods as I can handle and see 1022MB of VRAM usage (98%) steadily.

As for your second question: as much as you can afford tongue.gif

I was curious what mods you guys are using? i have recently got back into it - Currently lvl 8, Cat person (forget what they are called lol) wanting to make an Assassin/Rogue kind of character but spend most of my time with a Mace and shield frown.gif

Got Bow and Arrow as well, What good spells would you recommend for an Assassin/Rogue kind of character? Got Clairvoyance so i can find my way around what other ones could be useful? dont really want any damaging ones just ones that help me or maybe summon help or something

Currently doing the quest to get the dragonstone got it and ready to hand in, but the quest after (wont say what) is kinda hard so im holding back til i lvl up a bit

I'm using primarily character mods, only a half-dozen environment mods so as to not eat up my VRAM, so I can use ENB.

This is a pair of .txt files with a list of all the mods I have installed. The document, "Installed_Mods.txt" lists by category (and alphabetical) which mods I have installed like this: Mod Name (Skyrim Nexus ID Number) ;(Filepath on my Hard Drive)

You can disregard the part with the filepath as it won't pertain to you; I just use it personally since I don't use the Nexus Mod Manager so I can pick and choose what to install and this helps me keep track of what I have installed and where I can find it again. At the bottom is also the list of Subscribed files on the Steam Skyrim Workshop. I also tried to list them in the order that I installed them for some things that overlap (like the body mods). I think most of them are independent of each other, though some of the environment ones might overlap.

The second document just lists my load order for the .ESP files. I don't use a third-party load order manager either (like BOSS), though my order is taken from the BOSS Load Order Master List (which can be found HERE). The spaces in between lines in this file are just to help me see the categories so it's not one big mess of text. Mods that have (++) in front of them mean I have the .ESP disabled.

The list of mods I've downloaded is even longer (about 300 I think). I have that as a separate document as well haha!



Showracemenu in console. Though, changing Race and/or Gender has been known to reset your Health, Stamina, and Magicka stats. I'm not sure if it resets perks as well. Save before you do it, and save a new game afterwards. Some have said to use the command tgm before changing race, as it will supposedly save your stats and not reset them, but others have said it doesn't work.

If you do change, you can change your stats back to how they were using the commands: player.setav xxx yyy
X is either Health, Stamina, or Magicka, and the Y is the value they were at previously. (Example command: player.setav magicka 150 would set your Magicka at 150.)

The steam workshop is SO freaking useless, it hardly ever allows me to download any mods. The thing is a total failure and i KNOW its not something on my end seeing my internet is working and actually downloading a file now and yet i STILL the bloody error message when trying to download a mod from it. Anyone else ever get this? I have pretty much had to download all my mods from Nexus, about 10 or so of the 50+ mods that i wanted when i first got back into Skyrim would download kept getting the Error 16 BS but then the very next file would download and then the next one wouldnt.
