I run it maxed out at 1920x1200 with 8xAF (no AA - not needed) except for terrain distance. I have that one notch past halfway. There's NO visible difference between just over halfway and full, but your framerate is greatly increased. In Menethil Harbor as I ran over the bridge to the Wetlands I would get around 22fps with full terrain. With just over half, I'm now getting 35fps. Most of the time the game runs at 45-60fps. I'm not sure why the game runs so much better at just over half terrain distance, but it does. (I would understand why if there was an ACTUAL visible difference in terrain details/distance, but there isn't. If I turn the terrain to low, I can see the visible difference, but not at just over halfway.)
