Default Re: Config Question

In that case start off with all settings on "high" and test how it performs to you and create an empty system.cfg with these lines:

r_sunshafts = 1
r_colorgrading = 1
r_UsePOM = 1
r_WaterGodRays = 1
r_TexturesStreaming=0 (only if you don't have a 64-bit O.S.)
g_battleDust_enable = 1

These are the major "very high" effects and the performance hit shouldn't be too big and since you have 4GB I'd put the "textures" setting to "veryhigh" as well. Stay away from the "very high" shader and post-processing settings because they do cause a major performance hit (higher quality shadows, motion blur, DoF and quite a few other effects are the cause for this). I recommend the 169.21 driver for Vista in DX10 but I haven't tested the .25 driver yet.
