I did have to drop my resolution to 1024x768 like most have but in the end, it looked better to me having all the options on and running at a lower res. Like you noted, once you play with VDM on, things look too flat when you go back to having it off. Same with HDR. After playing with it on, things look too dull with it off.
I started playing the game with the SM1.1 mode when I first got the demo. Was quite impressed with it already. But once I tried the SM3 mode with all effects, I didn't want to go back.
