ill check that out...

you can just zip or rar them up and use the attachments here...
That isn't such a good idea. My ini settings are optimized for my computer and they may not work well on your system even if we have similar hardware. Using someone else's could cause crashes and problems and it probably won't run at optimal performance. What settings a custom ini should have will be different from computer to computer.

You should set up your own ini file based on your hardware. The Skyrim CFG Maker is the easiest method to do so.

You can do it manually as well using a tweak guide, but it's time consuming and you'll have to be careful what you do.

Always make sure you back up an unaltered copy of both skyrim.ini and skyrimprefs.ini before you do anything to either.

Also, leave the ugridstoload set to 5. You can turn it up to 7, 9, or 11, but it makes the game very unstable and causes crashes no matter how good your hardware is. If you must, you can turn it up when starting a new game, but it still can cause problems to do so. Once it's done, it can't be undone unless you change the ini, remove your old save files, and start a new game.

It's best to just leave it at 5 because messing with that setting just makes the game unplayable. Don't change it as it's a permanent change. You can't make a clean save or dial it back once you change the setting.

It's also best to leave uexterior cell buffer and uinterior cell buffer settings at 36 and 3. These two settings are directly tied to the ugridstoload setting. Altering them causes the same issue. For example, changing uexterior cell buffer to 24 will alter ugridstoload and make it a lower number than 5 even if the ini setting says ugridstoload 5, and as a result cause frequent crashing if done on an existing save game, or create a horrible draw distance if done on a new game. Raising the number to 72 is roughly the same as raising the ugridstoload to 9 and causes the exact same problems and instability.

If you must change them, uexterior cell buffer should be a multiple of 12 and uinterior cell buffer should be a multiple of 3. Upping the ugridstoload and uexterior/interior cell buffer settings can make for some nice screen shots, but you really can't play the game with them set at anything but the default settings no matter how powerful your hardware is, so just leave them as they are.
