Skyrim Settings & Experiences GT 240 GDDR5
Hello, I just purchased TESV: Skyrim, and I am using a 240GT GDDR5. I know that this game's settings are also dependent on your CPU, and in which case you can see the rest of my specs in my signature. Anyways, If anyone else here is using a similar card, I'l like to hear your setup, and experiences with the game. My settings are as follows:

Skyrim suggests [u]Medium[/u] by default, but I have done some tests, and a custom setup works better imo:
[quote]Aspect Ratio: Standard (4:3 or 5:4)
Resolution: 1280x1024 Fullscreen
Antialiasing: Off
Anisotropic Filtering: Off

Texture Quality: High
Radial Blue: Low
Shadow Detail: Medium [i](Not sure if I should set this to Med/Low. Would it increase FPS by much?)[/i]
Decal Quantity: Medium
FXAA: On
Reflect Land: On
Reflect Objects: Off
Reflect Trees: Off
Reflect Sky: Off

Object Fade: 6
Actor Fade: 6
Grass Fade: 4
Specularity Fade: 7
Light Fade: 15
Item Fade: 4
Distant Object Detail: Medium
Object Detail Fade: On[/quote]

I do not use the post-process injector mod, as I feel my current rig cannot handle it most likely.
I do, however, use the following mods:
[list][*][url=http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=2535][b]Fountain of Youth Beauty Project[/b][/url] - Makes females in-game look absolutely amazing, with minimal performance drop (if any).
[*][url=http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=2464][b]Bright Eyes[/b][/url] - HD eyes, no fps loss.
[*][url=http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=648][b]No Tint & Desaturation - Normalized[/b][/url] - Probably my most intensive mod. Not noticing a difference[list][*][b]Darker Interiors[/b][*][b]Darker Nights[/b][/list]
[*][url=http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=193][b]Glowing Ore Veins[/b][/url] - HD ore veins in the world.
[*][url=http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=3605][b]Ingot Texture Pack[/b][/url] - HD ingot retex.
[*][url=http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=2006][b]Skyrim -Elys- MemInfo[/b][/url] - Awesome mod for testing fps and such.[/list]

I am also using a couple of UI enhancing mods, but those do not effect performance I would think.

Anyways, if anyone uses a similar GPU, and has any advice for settings that need changing, or improvements I can make to make my performance/visuals better, feel free to post/discuss here.

Thanks in advance.

A Skyrim patch was just released that results in the game no longer working with skyrim4gb.exe. Skyrim will not launch when started using it. Now, Skyrim crashes for me after hours of play. The skyrim4gb.exe launcher made the game stable for me, but the game makers decided we would be better off with the game crashing, I suppose.

Uhm, the new patch makes the game Large Address Aware which is very likely why the 4GB launcher now fails as it's trying to apply a flag that is already set!

There were two new patches. The first one broke things (1.3.0). 1.3.0 was what I was running when the game crashed to desktop.

The later released fix is supposed to correct the issue (1.3.1). Time will tell though, since these patches have been unimpressive.

Yeah, from what I've read the new patch makes it so you don't [i]need[/i] the 4gb patch... Now it utilizes more than 2gb on it's own. Don't quote me on that though because I have yet to read the changelog.
