Never heard of Skyboost before, so I really don't know. Try both?

I use skyboost.
Not sure if it made a difference though, my game does play fairly smooth.

Skyboost is outdated and doesn't work anymore. Apparently people still use the other one.

Googled a bit. It looks like Skyboost does the same thing as an older mod, that is optimizing the executable for a newer instruction set. But Bethesda that already did that themselves a long time ago, so it's redundant; previously Skyrim was compiled for x87. I don't think you need skyboost.

I don't really understand how hialgoboost works but the way it's described on nexus makes it sound like it cuts the renderer's internal buffer resolution to 1/3 of the original resolution or something. I'm not sure if it actually affects the image quality but it doesn't seem like it would hurt to try it.

I could be wrong, but yea, that sounds like it is going to hurt image quality. You can get a similar boost by lowering your resolution. :/
