ALL GAME OPTIONS MAXED but anti aliasing 4x and anisotropic filtering 16x is maxed to me.dont think 16QAA 16CSAA Anti aliasing is necesary for me.As long as the jaggies r not visible its of with me.besides the performance drain is not worth it coz u hardly experience any difference while playing

Decent poll, I think some AA and AF is necessary, and definitely all of the textures and stuff needs to be maxed. Otherwise, it's just medium settings, isn't it?

None of those options. I dont think the resolution matters, you just go for the best resolution your monitor will support. I feel AA and AF come with max not just high, high for me is all the in game settings all or most of the way up.

Max settings would depend on the monitor you have, i am still stuck with my old 17" CRT monitor, so for me max resolution that my monitor allows and maxed out in game setting, starting from AA, AF, Shadow details and the works!

I use 1920x1200 myself, but realize the TV resolution is taking over.

Also guys, realize there is a difference between "max" and what this vote is on "high" settings.
