    Thanks,

    First, are you looking for settings that are balanced, performance focused, or graphically focused?

    Secondly, which Call of Duty are you talking about?

    great post kaboom,
    as a fellow gamer this is legit because you get the main concepts without overkilling what needs to be known =D
    with that said, what are your thoughts on putting together another post or adding to this with the latest effects games have?
    if you are knowledgeable in these here are some examples that id be really appreciative of =D

    -difference between direct x 9, 10, 11 (simple breakdown negatives/positives)
    -physx (how it applies to games?, what kind of added stress dos it put on the system?)
    -tessellation (all i know is crysis 2 ran mint with everything on high playing in 3D but batman ac is unplayable with direct x 11 tess and stuff on lol extreme chopping from the press start screen =/)
    -mvss and hbao (i don't know what these are other then they appear in the setting of batman arkham city for direct x 11 features)
    -the new anti-aliasing (fxaa high, medium, low, how dos that apply vs choosing the setting with the multiplier?)
    -distortion (i saw this and i thought of my bass effects pedal lol)
    -ambient occlusion (im guessing this is the in game effect where objects such as windows, ice, water have that crystal see threw effect? i have a feeling im way off though =P)

    i know i could search most of these but we all know if its broken down into a persons opinion vs verbatim it tends to be that much easier to understand, specifically from people with likewise interests.
    so if you have some time and have a solid on these it would be sweet if they were added to the post or new post and i for one would be hella grateful!

    The only reason people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory!

    glenn, if you want more on the Graphics technology check out this link http://www.geeks3d.com/20090815/high...cclusion-hdao/ which goes into HDAO High Definition Ambient Occlusion (DX11) along with links to just about all other things PhysicX, DX11, OpenGL, OpenCL and on and on... Sorry I took so long in bringing this info to you but I've been busy trying to get my system somewhat close to what I want and playing with all my new toys....
