That way I don't really have to mess with it on a per-game basis.

Wow, my maximum is more than double yours Grey. I don't mean to brag, but for the longest time it seemed like my rig just was under-performing compared to what the benchmarks showed the GTS was capable of. Turns out that Bilinear Filtering offers better image quality and better performance over Trilinear Filtering, also that setting the "Texture Filtering- negative LOD bias" to "allow" improves performance as well- helps to read the dialog under the settings in the driver control panel.
