Forget GTA 5. Skyrim is still the king of pretty on PC

Ok, GTA 5 (opens in new tab), I know you're attractive and all and there's already plenty of GTA 5 PC mods (opens in new tab) but Skyrim (opens in new tab) can still one up you. Imgur user OrbitalDuck (opens in new tab) captured the below footage on his PC. Just look at the water. Mmm, so clear... I've never felt quite this way about digital H2O before. It feels like it should be a more private moment.

If you're wondering what PC wizardry this is, OrbitalDuck is running two GTX Titan graphics cards in SLI for double the graphical prowess and has installed this (opens in new tab) set of maximum graphics packs from Steam. However, bear in mind that if this is the Skyrim experience you want then it's not going to be cheap. Titan X graphics cards are currently retailing at around £900 each. But, the water... Right?

The video below from JamCheesy (opens in new tab) shows another beautiful display of the Natural Lighting and Atmospherics ENB.

This includes the below graphics and textures packs:
