So after trying different d3d9.dll files from Skyrim Nexus and ENBSeries I remembered that FO:NV Nexus had a little program called "D3D9Gen B3" that basically created a file for you based on preset cards or by outright detecting your card. I clicked "Set my video card by text" and then had it run option #3 "SLOW", and then had it generate the d3d9.dll which I then dropped into my /Skyrim folder.

Switching from the pre-defined d3d9.dll someone made on the Skyrim Nexus to this D3D9Gen kept me with great performance while allowing high settings. It looks much better, now.

For anyone who wants to try it out just follow my instructions after downloading it from here (download the optional one labeled "D3D9Gen B3"):

Before I download this explain what it does differently to the ENDseries. Because I'm using that one and my performance is less than desirable.

Atheism is merely a consequence of having intellectual honesty.
If you download games for free (illegally), you are an anti-gamer. Period.

Is this legal? I know there has been some debate as to whether using files from other games is illegal or not as we dont own the code.

I'm going to say that using Bethesda code in a Bethesda game is probably not the way that debate was supposed to go.
If I reference a man named Furby, I'm talking about myself.
