Hi all
Does anyone have an idea as to which gpu would give me excellent performance in Skyrim with alot of 4K/8K texture mods. I had the RTX 3060 in mind because it has the vram I need but I fear it lacks the GPU grunt that is needed. Any advice would be great thank you. I'll be playing at 1080p. I have a Ryzen 5 1600AF, 16GBs of ram and a 550W PSU.

if you want to lock Skyrim at 60fps @ 1080p then you don't need much "GPU grunt".
my old GTX 1080 Ti had no problem running Skyrim over 60fps @ 1440p with many high quality overhaul and texture mods in place.

though for current and future games in mind the lowest card i would recommend is either the RTX 3070 Ti or RX 6800.
for most cards over the RTX 3060 you will need a more powerful power supply though.

Oh I see well I'm looking at the rtx 3060, the Rx 6600 and the Rx 6600xt. Any other cards are abit out of my budget. Unless you recommend that I keep saving up so that the pc lasts longer for future use?
 
would you recommend a rtx 3060ti or a Rx 6700xt?
the RX 6700 XT is more powerful than the RTX 3060 Ti for straight fps,
but AMD's support for Ray Tracing and FSR is currently severely lacking compared to Nvidia's Ray Tracing support and DLSS.

as i already stated, games are going to continue to get more and more demanding as times goes by and mods are going to also require more and more horsepower the more elaborate they become so i would go for something stronger no matter your intended resolution.

if your just sticking with 1080p and happy with ≤60fps and lower settings you may as well just buy a last-gen console to play on.
