With an i7 and 6gb of ram, what should these be set too typically?

Im still really tweaking my new rig here and learning all this newer tech, so im not sure if boosting these up will increase the performance even more.

AA is set to 2X and Aniso is set to 4X...should i set these higher, what do both actually do, im just not 100% understanding of their usages really.

Also do most of you set the card to quality, balanced or performance for your rigs? I set it to performance and everything still looked just as good, although i havent upgraded to a higher res monitor to suit the card completely yet.

totally depends on the game. some low gpu intensive games (tf2) you could probably crank them both up, but crysis couldnt handle it.

also it is generally better to use the games aa/af settings instead of forcing them through the drivers

Yea that sounds about right.

I just want to set this card so that it will perform amazingly, as opposed to seeing every tiny detail...so im trying to learn the ins and outs.

Theres just so many settings lol its so confusing.

for the most part just set all the settings in the game and dont worry about the cards settings as much.

For performance, you want 0 antialiasing and anisotropic. Both exist to smooth out edges and increase image quality, but both cause a performance hit.
