Well, I advise you to buy the official fashion: Dawnguard, Dragonborn, and still something there.
They are interesting :)

Do what you like.
Some mods are not gamechanging. Like skyui or many body and armor mods.
You might need the unofficial patches to fix some bugs.

Eventually ist up to you.

i bought these, but are there any mods i should really get?
Tialys Jul 20, 2013 @ 1:51pm

Answer to your question - mod the hell out of it

heres some amazing mods you can get

Assassins Creed x Dragon Age armors

Better looking followers - see how better looking Janessa looks now

Better looking main character

There are TONS of mods out there which can improve the game. I try 50% lore and 50% non lore as im only going to be playing skyrim the once so i want the utter best out of it.

Theres some amazing mods out there such as
Amazing follower Tweaks
Lunari race
Better looking female followers
Tera weapons
JackGa Shop
Monster Mod
Blaze the horse of fire
Dwemmer airship house
Wet and Cold weather effects

seriously if your playing it without mods then its a little bit like ordering a pizza without any toppings. Sure the pizza and cheese are ok but with 9 extra different pieces of meat thrown on....your in for a whole better slice of pizza

I strongly recommend the Unofficial Patch mods.

Pfff, just bought Skyrim LE and there are SO many mods..
But I found this:

Just posted on July 18th. So maybe it can help others too.
Simple piece of advice, learn about modding first. It should take a couple of weeks to become confident enough to know what you are doing. There are many tutorials online, but I just made a thread that gathers as much info as poss on the subject, and got it pinned. Other members of the community have contributed and it's still looking like it's evolving.

Good luck.

I wouldn't install anything onto your computer without first knowing how to look after it once it is running...

Play without mods for as long as you can, and then whatever you find lacking in the game just find mods to compensate. Enjoy the game!

I got a question. The Skyrim: High Resolution Texture Pack (Free DLC), is it recommended to install this DLC or is it better to ignore and use a mod? Will the official HRT pack conflict with a HRT mod?

Thanks in advance.

I'd say definitely look in to some mods. I've installed several recently and they really look like they'll improve the game!
Mods. Mods everywhere.

@Dyro_B if you have a good GPU ie 1,5 gb and above then the free DLC is good ,
saying that on Nexus are similar mods that are just as good but not as GPU heavy
