Gaco's 1.01 config is the way to go, but you have to add following settings to archieve the same quality as DX10 on veryhigh:

r_MotionBlur = 4 (object-based blur, there is a value "3" but apparently it works only in DX10)
r_DepthOfField = 2 (background mountains blur sightly)

And finally you have to force "veryhigh" shadows because the configs' shadows are only on "high".

Edit: e_lods = 1 - That one alone made a HUGE improvement to the framerate, from 17fps to 24fps without any visible reduction of image quality. Nice!
