Do you guys use "Let 3D application decide" on the Nvidia control panel?
I'm assuming that by letting the actual game make the changes, the game will look exactly like how the developers wanted it to look without taxing the performance more than it should.... does forcing AA/AF or high textures in the Nvidia control panel really make the game look any better than the "in-game" options? Will the performance hit be worth the actual graphical improvements?
For example, in Witcher 2... I'm playing everything on high and it is SO much smoother with having "let 3D app decide" enabled.... and there was no noticeable graphical downgrade at all.

I usually have it on app decide, and occasionally enhance the application.

I have it on app decide as well, it just means you choose the settings in the game or application instead of having the exact same settings or forcing 4AA and such on games without those options.:: Gaming Desktop ::CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T @ 3.9 Ghz 1.4v | MOBO: MSI 790FX-GD70 AM3GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 570 (732/1464/1900) | RAM: 4 GB G-Skill DDR3 1600SSD: OCZ Vertex 120 GB | HD1: WD Black 640 GB | HD2: WD Black 2 TBSC: Xfi Titanium Fatal1ty | PSU: Corsair HX 620 WKB: Saitek Eclipse | MOUSE: Logitech MX 518CASE: Antec 1200 | OS: Windows 7 x64:: Laptop ::MOD: Macbook Pro 13” 2011 | CPU: Intel Core i5 @ 2.3 GhzRAM: 4 GB DDR3 1333 | OS: OS X Lion 10.7.2

i always force AF filtering to 16x vsync and triple buffering. then i set overall quality to high.
with some games these options may cause graphical glitches or simply do not work.
some games though do not give you such options or are disabled because there are implementation of these filters that work with other rendering techniques.PSU: Enermax Revolution 1250W

Let the 3D application decide, never really adjust from Nvidia control panel apart from the odd occasion anyway, though I force my VSync off.Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X58-USB3
