There are basically only two (maybe three settings if you consider the "very high" shadows) settings that hurt DX10 performance and that is the high quality motion blur, and object blur. If they are not important to you, you can disable them and should have quite similar performance with DX10 and DX9+custom cfg. Last month I have played the final level at 1280x720 with 4AA and all DX10 settings and while I didn't fraps it was enjoyable and I'm certain the average was higher than 20fps.

On veryhigh in that resolution you would probably have around 20fps with drops down to 15... I dont like this, i want to be able to play on veryhigh at resolutions around 1280x and still have a decent FPS. So i took some time looking into tweaking and was reading alot here and there and finally i picked together a very nice cfg that raise fps by 10+ fps witch gives me the extra fps boost i need to enjoy crysis at VH in 1280x. I tried Gaco's "balanced" cfg as he wanted to call it, but in fact it only gave me 1 or 2 fps gains. I.e almost no difference and that's unacceptable, therefor i made my own. If youre interested in trying my miracle CFG out and see for yourself. Throw me a PM

Any chance of someone making a sticky thread purely for people to post their config in? There seems to be so many at the moment, it's pretty confusing.
