Skyrim Visual Immersion IMO is the best looking, with a little tweaking of DOF, and SSAO. However, because of the bugs with it the next best thing is Realistic Hope. From the pictures Photorealistic doesnt look as good as Realistic Hope.

There's no such thing as "the best looking ENB." It's easily a matter of preference. CLENB used to be good but it's so outdated it's not funny smile.gif I can't use an ENB without skylighting anymore. And separate settings for nights\interiors are an absolute must-have for me.

Anyways, that blue screen glitch is usually related to a certain set of nvidia drivers that are not compatible with certain ENBs that use a certain binary...... yikes. But yeah, I had that issue until I reverted my drivers to 306.97. I don't think it matters with he more recent versions of ENB... though I could be wrong

I know I'm late to the party but......Oh man this game is too much fun!!! Best Christmas present to myself ever! So much stuff to do, I've played 100+ hour and I've only done less than 30 quests so far. This is the first game I've played in years that made me call out sick from work to play tongue.gif I stayed home the other day and played almost 700 minutes straight.

Saiyansnake, I have about 500 hours into Skyrim. Across mostly one character and a semi-newly created character. The new character only has about 50 hours. I have put over 600 hours into Oblivion across I believe 4 or 5 characters. I had couple characters break to due lost of the original mods that were installed. I miss those characters so much. However, I never got into Morrowind, even though I am waiting for the Skywind to be finished.

Actually, I will be reinstalling windows soon, my second SSD is coming in the mail hopefully today or tomorrow. I already have all of my drivers and applications downloaded and ready. Question, should I try putting Windows 8 on my main machine? I already on it on my second machine, and it's running well so far. I heard some people do not like it with Skyrim and it's programs. I will be using NMM, SKSE, flawless widescreen, BOSS, and hopefully a ENB someday soon.

I prefer Cinematic cause it subtle, makes the lighting softer, adds a subtle yet powerful AO that dont kill your PC and well... simply looks nice.
Vanilla skyrim looks horrible!

I tried superb ENB yesterday aswell (worked no issues with sun etc) but jesus 15-25fps on average outdoors.
I had that before and was fully playable, now not so much.

With a 680? 1080p? Something seems... wrong with that.

I know Superb pushes a lot of the new effects in ENB. It probably uses a strong SSAO amount. That can be turned down. Might also use reflections, which are kinda unnecessary and can hurt performance. Complex SSIL can also eat up performance. First thing I do with ENB when trying out a new version is replace the DoF it uses. Yick...

But Superb is the ENB I'd recommend for realism. It was my favorite of the realistic ENBs. But pure hyper-realism kinda bores me. I prefer more of a fantasy setting with some atmosphere. I've been using an unreleased build of K ENB based on .132, which will hopefully be released SOMEWHERE soon. I know Kyo is a busy man. I've been posting quite a bit from that ENB over in the awesome skyrim screenshots thread.

15-20FPS average? There's something seriously wrong there. I average around 30FPS outdoors on my rig with all effects (SSAO, DoF, Shadows, Reflections, etc) enabled, and a ton of mods, and ENB isn't even that great on AMD setups compared to Nvidia.

Maybe you're loading up on high resolution textures a little too much, or running settings like Shadows on Ultra when you don't need to? It sounds like the game just isn't too well optimized in general. It's not always about running everything maxed out with the highest possible textures you can load up, even with a 2gb GPU.
