What mods should I use if I want to make FO3 and NV look as good as possible?

Here's the specs on my laptop: http://www.asus.com/Notebooks/Gaming_Powerhouse/G74SX/#specifications

For reference, it runs Skyrim, FO3, and NV really well on ultra high settings as it is, but I want the best I can make it.

These are, generally speaking, the two best-regarded Texture packs. NMC's is the top-rated. I just installed the largest version on my new comp, and mine's not quite up to your specs and it runs very well.

Ojo Bueno Texture Pack

For weather and lighting effects, I'd recommend picking one of three mods. Most people will say Nevada Skies, and it is good, but I think that's partially just that it is the oldest and most well known. (unfortunately, it looks like the nexus has just gone belly-up again, so I can't get the links right now, but these are all easily findable via search)

Project Wasteland Vision -- I've been running this. Very nice.
Nevada Skies -- As mentioned.
The name of the third escapes me, but it includes Western Sky (maybe skies)

Hey thanks man. Is there anything for FO3 and all the DLC for it?

NMC also did textures for F3, so I'd at least start there.

It's not for any of the DLC. Well damn. =/
