Graphics settings worth getting to know

Hi all

Moving to PC Gaming requires some knowledge on adjusting graphical settings to get best performance, especially when on a more budget system, or with some games that aren't ported so well to PC and have rogue settings that can either be turned down or even disabled.

For most games, if you google optimal graphics settings for that game, there will be loads of suggested settings that can be adjusted to increase framerates without sacrificing visual fidelity too much, often without reducing visual quality at all.

There are many many different settings types and RTX has grown this quite hugely, but here's a good synopsis of the most frequently used ones:

Linus TT have just done a fantastic video on the pointlessness that is “max settings”. Some people see this in reviews and think that if it can’t max out their monitor refresh at max settings then the card isn’t suitable, and that’s kind of entirely missing out on what a gaming computer is all about:

Great video, and thanks to @MrWilson for bringing it to our attention. The video makes all the right points, even if you’re a professional, chasing ultra settings at all times is ultimately an enigma.

Ultra settings always turns on a bunch of garbage settings I hate like motion blur and chromatic aberration :sick:

You're better just taking the couple minutes and picking your own settings based on your own preference. It also helps you learn what all the settings are and what they do

I’m not a fan of motion blur at all, always have that off.
