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.
I do not aim with my eye, I aim with my hand. I do not shoot with my hand, I shoot with my mind. I do not kill with my gun, I kill with my heart.

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)
How much of rational behavior is only rational when rationalized?

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.
Welcome to Gamefaqs, where everyone is wrong about everything. If it's advice, opinion, or even a general statement, it will be debated here.

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