Hi yall! I recently built a PC so I can enjoy gaming in 4K. Skyrim's my fave and I thought it could be heavily modded without a major performance hit. I'm not crazy about FPS, but would prefer to keep it above 50, 55.
My current pc:
MB: Gigabyte Aorus Elite V2 (rev.1)
GPU: ROG Strix RX 6900 XT Liquid Cooled
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X (with a 240mm Gallahad AIO)
RAM: 2x8Gb DDR4 Sniper 3600MHz CL16
SSD: WD SN750
I thought that this would would support Skyrim 2020 Parallax (with 4k / 2k textures), several 2k textures for armors and such, Tamriel Master Lighting, Window Shadows RT, Rudy ENB for Cathedral Weathers and DynDOLOD with 512 textures and High settings, in 4K resolution.
Thing is: in most inside spaces, it seems to get around 50fps, which is fine for me, but in some outside zones and some rooms with 2 or 3 lighting sources, it seems to drop to low 20s.
Is this normal for this type of rig? Would I get some benefit from upgrading the CPU and/or RAM? I would love some advice on this matter. Thanks!
