Running the game better
I want to run skyrim on some high settings and with some ENB's but sadly I can't. It is because of my video card. I have one of the worst integrated videos cards there is ( or so I have been told) but a great PC besides that. What videocrad would you recommend. (I'm not really on a money contraint)

I got a GTX 660 Ti at least a year ago and have been consistently around 50FPS at beyond max settings (increased LOD and shadow resolution, SSAO turned on), rarely if ever going below 40... I think. I have no idea whether I should recommend this card, particularly since it is by far the largest and hottest GPU I've owned, but my typical framerates may at least serve you as a point of reference.

Meh. Unless you're willing to buy a 770, stick with no ENB. Unless you want to use an ENB you'll end up not liking, then get a 660 TI.

oh how I want a 770 so badly

I got a 780 Ti, I had a GTX 660 SC but I decided to go big..glad I did, best card ever man seriously this thing plays anything without breaking a sweat. It is a bit pricy, but so worth it.

While it may not be a perfect solution if you are completely set on running an ENB, I would actually recommend looking up SweetFX and running that instead of an ENB. It provides a similar upgrades as far as graphical effects and there are a wide range of options to pick from. I personally am running "I cant believe its not an ENB 2" or ICBINE2 which is on the nexus.

^ What a coincidence I was just downloading Sweetfx and ICBINE2 now.

How do they look in comparison to...

Seasons of Skyrim ENB True HDR

Seasons of Skyrim ENB True HDR is the best enb on the nexus but I get about 40 fps with Seasons of Skyrim True HDR with the performance preset and some additional effects off on my 7870 so that's why I'm trying out ICBINE2.

Ahh okay, i'm getting ready to try SoS ENB. Hopefully it runs well, got some 4k texture mods as well../drool
Drew Aug 22, 2014 @ 12:36am 
And ICBINE2 isn't even an ENB lol
Drew Aug 22, 2014 @ 12:37am 
With a 780 TI you can probably run it with full effects at 5x-60 fps just like Gopher.

Only thing i'm worried about is the VRAM, 3gb..should've got the 6gb >.>
Drew Aug 22, 2014 @ 12:42am 
I use ~60 texture mods, and~120 non texture mods. + Seasons of Skyrim ENB with 2gb vram. you'll be fine. Skyrim HD 2k Textures LITE and Vivid Landscapes - All in One are 2 of those texture packs I use and I haven't even used up my 2gb vram yet.

Anymore than 3gb is unnecessary.
