I once managed to get most of the great ones working in a reasonably stable fashion, and I actually completed the main quest with them. Oh, there were oddities and quirks - and it was a matter of constantly adjusting throughout - but it did work.

I think that makes it around 1 success out of ~20 attempts to get it stable and playable with the mods I really want.
I managed to get a good setup with a ton of mods that I felt really improved everything once as well. I also spent a ridiculous amount of time to get there and couldn't shake the feeling that if I sneezed the whole thing would come crashing down and never work again.

I don't have the patience and time to do that now and besides, thanks to digital downloads I have a huge backlog.
