There is really so much I'm not going to list everything I've got. I would start with this site. Don't get overwhelmed. Mainly I would install some good world textures (QTP3) and a good LOD pack.
Start here:

If you have the power I would suggest Better Tiling 4096 x 4096 and Qarl's LOD normal maps 4096 x 4096 W/ the med noise filter. There are many options.

Yeah, you have the power, go with the 4096 x 4096 Better Tiling, Normals and med noise filter. You could add in Depth of field but it's kinda cheep looking. Let me see if I can find my screenshots.
Here we go. I forgot I've also installed the Natural Weather_HDR mod. It adds allot more atmosphere, variance and better weather effects and sounds to the game. Clear water, Better Night Skys, all the Illumination from Within mods.

I have it, I think you'll need it if you have any of the expansion packs. I would also grab some leveling mod and creature mod like Francesco's leveled creatures-items mod v3.3d
