Re: Just got a brand new GTX 460 1GB, and I gotta say...
Not sure what HBAO is but things run smoother with it on. I know it has something to do with shadowing. My brother was getting ****tly stuttering and I turned this on and it helped immensely. Hope it helps you too. Incidentally he is running 260GTX 1900x1060ish everything high under advanced and getting mid 40's for FPS Ave.
