    being back in good old 19" CRT i dont need that high resolution anymore, compared to 22" 16/10 LCD, picture is brighter, sharperd and more colorfull, due more compact screen, no need to have that high resolution or that much aa

    just wish i had 22" hd crt now :)

    in gta iv its pointless to have vehicle density at full, as it does just what it says, adds more vehicles, this ofc unless u like to drive in traffic jam

    When a truly demanding game is finally released (which there aren't any soon) and isn't just a poorly coded port,

    Playing on 24" 1080p

    1. If any AO/SSAO -> off
    2. AA 4X -> 2X
    3. AF 16X -> 8X
    3.5 ... desperately overclock as much as I can, though it usually doesn't help much.
    4. If PhysX on GPU -> disable it
    5. Shadows (only lower this by a little)
    6. Resolution -> 1680x1050

    If that still doesn't work...

    Most likely I'll buy a new card if I can't play by lowering AA/AF. I've upgraded only when my old card didn't cut it anymore. Its just kind of sad when you know the game could look much more brilliant (as well as smoother) but you can't experience it. Most mid range cards today are fairly powerful as long as you don't game at 1080p and still expect high AA/AF, so many users can keep up with upgrades in a year or two year period without breaking their wallets.
    The next upgrade for me might be whatever is nice around winter to get ready for BF3 if my 460 will struggle with it. Other games that are being released now don't seem to be that demanding, and are all mostly ports now.
    A 460 is more than enough to handle those.
