I just built a new computer on purpose for modded Skyrim and Witcher 3. Not knowing any better I installed windows 10. Kind of like it actually. Now, in researching what graphics mods to install i find that Windows 10 is limited to 4 GB RAM + VRAM with Directx 9. Is this problem real? If this limit is real does it matter?
A few specifics to get started:
Gigabyte GA-Z170x-Gaming 5 MB
i5-6600K unlocked but not OCed
16 GB Ram
Samsung 850 EVO SSD
GTX 1070 GPU
Successfully reinstalled Skyrim from Steam including SKSE, NEXUS mod manager, LOOT, TESVedit, and my old backup files. Have a few mods, but nothing graphically intensive yet. Have been running without crashes for a week on and off.
I don't even know what DirectX I have but everything is working.(have not tried any Total War games yet).
So, before I delve deep into ENB and graphics modding do I have a problem with the OS that needs to be fixed? What tools could I install that would let me know of any potential problems (like RAM usage etc)?
Thanks in advance
