Default High Quality v High Performance Screenshots(including FPS)

First some Painkiller: BooH shots
Looney Park:High Quality, High Performance
Lab: High Quality, High Performance

HL2 Trainstation 1
High Quality, High Performance
HL2 Trainstation 2
High Quality, High Performance

Far Cry
Regulator: High Quality, High Performance
Bunker: High Quality, High Performance

Doom3
Departure Lounge:High Quality, High Performance, High Performance(Com_fixedTic -1)
Common Area:High Quality, High Performance

These were all taken @ 1280x1024, 4AA, 8AF, Image Setting: High Quality/High Performance(driver 67.66)

Think i'll be playing with it set at High Performance more often, i mean you would hardly notice the difference when you are actually playing the game and not spectating
What do you people think ?

Thanks Mac, but,I noticed the difference in AF in Far Cry and Half Life2 with optimizations on and off. It's upto the individual and I am stubborn enought o play at High quality.

i play at a lower res on my LCD, mostly 1024 by 768 and some cases 1280 by 1024 but at 1024 the fps is constant enough not to fret. FPS gains are fine but, if there are visual distractions, it's off putting. You know what I mean

You mean you're a picky bugger who didn't buy his 6800GT to play "High Performance" detail levels...

Yep, i know what you mean, it's just like in one of the Far Cry images where High Quality is running at 102 fps and High Performance is running at 119 fps, if it wasn't for the FPS meter running you wouldn't see a difference in-game. I've been using the High Performance setting when i play Far Cry with HDR enabled to give me a boost in the FPS department, heh..then i'm to busy checking out all the HDR effects to notice anything else

Don't see much of a difference in EQ2 with High performance, FPS or IQ. Think I'll keep it at HQ.

Hmm, well I notice the tranistions in the mip maps etc when moving around I cannot describe it more clearly, for stills not a problem as nothing moves but, when moving in Far Cry, Half Life 2 etc..... Doom III, not so much since AF optimizations are not enabled in OpenGL i think.
