Catalyst 9.3 recommended configuration settings? 4850x2 1Gb

I'm not so familiar with the meaning of some/most of the settings I find under the CCC 3D settings tabs, i.e.

Adaptive anti-aliasing
Anisotropic filtering
Catalyst AI
Mipmap detail

...and when to use/check "use application settings"...

I have a new Sapphire 4850x2 1Gb card and would greatly appreciate some insight and help into how to best set these for gaming.

Thank you!

I suggest you only change AI to `advanced` and leave the others at `use application settings` so you can fine tune each game according to taste because these settings are global and will otherwise be applied to every game you play. Doom 3 would easily run at 8xAA and 16xAF @1600x1200 and maximum quality but Crysis and GTAV would become little more than fast slideshows at those settings.

Thank you!

I also had some time today to do some browsing on my own and found some excellent guides and one that was precisely what I was looking for here:

9.3 Catalyst Tweaking Guide

They had several other linked internally I'd also recommend after checking on them myself.
