I had to pick everything maxed out, while I can play at those settings... in town it's a bit choppy so I'm at near max so I can keep FPS in town up.

I started with everything maxed on 1920x1080. The game looked great but was really really choppy. I turned the settings down a bit and it looked better but was still choppy and people were still taking 3-4 mins to load. I turned the settings down a bit more (still 1920x1020) and now the game looks good with snappy load times. I'm at work or I'd post the specifics of my settings.

I am running on maxxed out drop down settings on a 1900x1280 resolution in windowed mode. I don't have anti aliasing or antroscopic filtering turned on though. I rated the graphics as good (4 stars), though sometimes, when I'm in a nice locale and the lighting in my room is just right, the vibrant color just jumps off my screen, and I'd give it a 5 star rating at those times. So yeah, Mik, like you said, it depends on a great many factors on how you'd rate the quality of the graphics.

The difference between no AA and just 2x AA is pretty huge, you should consider it. Looks so much better.

Yeah I will give it a whirl. I am pretty much at the cusp right now of a balance between performance and visual quality, but it's worth checking into. Thanks man.
