I have done the Crow's Nest and areas like it with all on and maxed without difficulty and that's not the same as some of the most demanding raids.
I don't max out seetings at RAIDS too, using the particles to myself only options. I just want to have a card that would allow me to see full particles without slowing down the system in raids.
