Hi! I am wondering what level of graphics mods I would be able to run without experiencing any major FPS problems. If someone could maybe compose a list of graphics mods or just tell me my limits I'd appreciate it...


My Specs are:

Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-6400 CPU @ 2.70GHz 2.71 GHz

Installed memory (RAM): 8.00 GB

System type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor

And the rest is in the attached file.

P.S. The specs in the file mention an Intel Graphics Card but I run Skyrim off of an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950.

You will have some limits due to the GTX 950 being a 2GB card, and that it's just a bit on the weaker side. With that said, not all hope is lost. I suggest downloading the following mods.


1. BethINI - this mod will help you gain FPS by optmising your .ini files the best way possible. Be sure to use the BethINI presets - not the standard ones. Medium is probably what you want to go with.

2. Skyrim HD - just use the "Lite" version.

After that you should probably check on your framerate just to be sure everything is okay.


Also, for future reference, Skyrim related posts don't go here.
