There's a 4th command that a lot of people are setting to 8192 or 16384 (vt_pageimagesizevmtr), but apparently it won't go over 4096 so just leave it. There isn't a noticeable difference in texture quality between 16384 and 8192, but 16384 completely resolves the texture pop-in issue for me.
At 16xAA my FPS are between 20 and 30. Totally playable for me since I play on my HDTV with a 360 controller. I prefer lower FPS anyway as I think it makes games look more cinematic. Also, 16xAA completely removes all jaggies and shimmering.
Your fps should be a constant 60 fps with those settings on a 580, something isn't right.
