There's a pretty cool roundup of different graphics settings commonly found in games.  It has nice sideby side comparisons to help you decide where to set your graphics settings for visuals vs performance.  Pretty neat to see how all those settings actually compare.  Pretty quick read, and certainly found the comparison shots useful.

Wow, tweakguides.com is great.  thanks for the mention, espescially since I'm about a week away from building my new system.  It's the most amazing source I've seen to win xp.  Even has tips for my video card driver.

Very nice article, not sure it would help me any, but very good stuff for those just getting acquainted with hardware specifics.

For now it won't really help me, but it may be useful for future reference a year or 2 down the road.

I rarely run any level of antialiasing in games due to the performance hit they usually take for me, but I HAVE to have anisotropic filtering set to at least 4x, preferably 8x. Such a massive difference with AF on versus off.

I also tend to be willing to sacrifice shadow details, but like to run a fair bit of lightsources. This all depends on the game though.

The original NWN has always been my benchmark for testing a rig upgrade; how does it run with as much special effects I can throw at it as possible? Anymore, I can max everything on it and it runs just fine. I need a new benchmarking app. icon_biggrin
