    True, but for some reason I still prefer looking it up on UESP, even though that means tabbing out of the game lol

    On topic, I just got a new GTX 560, which cost half as much as I originally paid my the GTX 285 it just replaced. :)

    However I haven't had any visual gain from it yet as Skyrim was already on 'Ultra' settings. What can I do to up the visuals on Skyrim to max out my 560?

    These are the mods I'm currently using;

    NB: I have two full HD monitors, the second of which I use to watch shows/movies while playing.

    Yes, I tried this out and Skyrim's FPS perished. I'm hoping someone else has found the right settings for a 560...

    Yeah that ones the weapons one, the glass parts been up for a good month or so, but you have to dl it separately from the other part of the weapons mod.

    Going to run through with mods after my second run through in Skyrim.

    I think I had a save file corruption of some sort as I have removed the previous games save profiles and found my mouse cursor is no longer freezing due to high HDD activity when I click on load or save.

    Great mod.

    Also note his UI. I can't wait for that mod!
    That is what I expect a PC UI to look like.

    If you read his comments he is beta testing a friends mod but it isn't ready for public yet for some reason.

    All the best fantasy media ( be it games,books or film) can cause that.

    You want to be in THAT world after all not the one you are in.


    Who wouldn't rather be saving the world then doing what your doing at the moment?
