Question about graphical mods
So I used to be running skyrim in the lowest quality, even using some de-enhancers to make sure my computer could handle it. Well, bought a new graphics card and can now run in ultra and get a firm 28-30 FPS (I know some intense PC people think 30 is really low but its plenty for me) so if I download graphical mods do I need to worry about it pushing it a step to far and lagging? Or I'm good to install graphical mods and I'll still be fine? If so what are some you reccomend?

New graphics cards usually have more RAM these days than they did when the game was released. You can probably safely use HD textures now without any real performance hit. I'm still stuck with hardware limitations myself, but I've added Eyes of Beauty, Enhanced Distant Terrain, Better Dynamic Snow (with HD textures from Nexus), Moss Rocks, Vibrant Auroras, and Splash of Rain without noticeable performance hit.

A realistic lighting mod is something you should try, I actually retunred the GPU mentioned above because here was a sale going on so I got a much better one at the same price. Can run in around 45 now while using fraps, the lighting mod makes a huge diffrence in how the world around you feels without any FPS drop that I've noticed.
