So I built a pc not too long ago and playing pc games looks way better then consoles. I learned of the great enhancements modding can do to certain games that allow it such as skyrim. Does anyone have any mods to recommend?
I also made some videos of the mods I downloaded so people can check out
this is one of them

Higher resolution textures, learn about enbs (Graphics overhauls, basically)

Inigo follower. Just get him. Do it.

Character overhauls, custom races. I haven't Skyrim'd in a while so I forget the exact ones I used.

Interesting NPCs, I think was the name.

Be A Bard or something. Pretty fun, but repetitive. You get to wear a tight ass lute on your back tho.

Look into dungeon/adventure mods. There are some AMAZING ones out there.

I'm a jedi and a bard in skyrim.

But I have a ton of graphics mods and stuff. I don't think I have any ENB's though. I love the alternate start mod. I don't have a list cause I change them frequently.

The mods I use are portable campsite, Better male's, and the horse whistle. I dont see the need to install high res texture packs etc as the stock textures look good enough to me. the whistle sure dose come in handy when you have those wtf is my horse moments.
