Look in the tweakguides.com guide, page 5-7.

No I meant that while the change from medium to high shaders may have a somewhat significant impact on performance, for me it has an almost as equally impact on imagequality as well so I think it's totally worth going high shaders at least. That's with my spec, I have no experience with what's worth the sacrifice on midrange cards..
