Other than that your system is fairly equivalent to mine, with the major difference being my graphics card having a full 1Gb memory. I suspect from that Fri is correct and possibly you are simply pushing your use of High(er) Res textures too far.
When you reinstalled you did check that Skyrim was starting ok before you began modding again?
I would look at the main texture mods, even if you have the 1K versions, and maybe decide to try using a subset of those recommended. Possibly use the HD DLC + SRO or Skyrim HD - 2K, but not both.
Another possibility is to read up on the Guide:DDSopt_&_Texture_Overhauls
and consider optimizing the vanilla and HD DLC especially, and 'maybe' the major texture mod you decide on. If you want to test if this will help you could try using Skyrim Mods Complex Optimizer but if you do I recommend backing up your texture .bsa(s) and possibly your texture folder as well, and then after checking return to the guide and redo the optimizations properly with DDSopt.

Install GPU-z and check your VRAM using that. I cannot tell by the PerfMon what your dedicated/dynamic VRAM useage is.
Here I are, back again, etc. With a picture for you. And I think it may confirm your suspicions. That also, I appear to be missing a gig of ram (I think). :confused: Greatful for your thoughts.
GPU-z should be our standard for measuring this I think, or at lease use it in conjuction so that we can determine what PerfMon is telling us.

The new beta drivers should offer improvements for skyrim, especially if they are nvidia.
How many other background processes are you running as well (apart from SPM or gpu-z)? You can use a program called gamebooster to ensure that all other programs and services are shut down allowing skyrim easier access to your computers resources.
You can also use a program called CCleaner to clear all redundant files from your computer, as these can also have an effect. In addition, the same program will also clean up your registry. You should also defrag the driver that contains skyrim fully. These things may help.
Regarding the Hi-Res DLC from Bethesda, they state an absolute minimum of 1GB VRAM required to run it, and strongly recommend 1.5GB VRAM. With only 900MB VRAM you should consider Vano's Hi-Res Optimized DLC pack, and pick the lowest settings, this might give you the effects of the DLC with less a hit on performance.
In any case im happy to hear its not crashing anymore :)

This one - HiAlgoBoost FPS Performance Accelerator Full Version - I have not yet tried but might be promising.
