Chris, when you say "texture stage optimisations" do you mean the anisotropic optimizations or are you speaking of something else? Using the 61.77 drivers, "Quality" mode enables both Trilinear and Anisotropic optimizations by default for me, so I was just wondering what you are referring to when you said

I would like to have as many performance boosters on as possible without hurting quality too much, so I just wondered if you thought that aniso opts were OK in most cases.
