hi,i play FPS games(MW2 and black ops)and im not sure what settings to use in my catalyst control centre,for my ati 4770 512 card,
for the anti-alaising should i tick the box that says(use application settings)
for the anisotropic filtering,should i do the same?? and what about disable catalyst A.I. option,what does that do??
also the...MITMAP DETAIL LEVEL...ENABLE ADAPTIVE ANTI-ALAISING...OPEN GL SETTINGS(TRIPPLE BUFFERING)...and also..WAIT FOR VERTICAL REFRESH(performance or quality)

Tick use application settings for everything you can so that the game youre playing will handle it. Keep vertical refresh off, just another setting youre game can handle. I disable AI because it causes fps drop in some games I play but for other games it will help, it really depends on the game, or leave it off and not worry like me. The other settings I can't really help without knowing how many fps youre getting in game and how much you want to be getting. For any setting put performance if you want more fps or put to quality if you want your game to look better.


Here's a link for a detailed description of what everything does.

AA = x8 (if trouble, try setting at USE APP)

AF = x16 (if trouble, try setting at USE APP)

catalyst AI: this is driver optimization (off=better image quality, lower fps; advanced=better fps, lower image quality; standards is best, no noticeable quality loss) i use standard

Mipmap = quality

vSync = off

Adaptive AA = quality (enable)

Triple buffering = on (if u have 512mb gpu ram, see if triple B = off gives u better frames)
