Camera Shake: Reduce for comfort, especially if prone to motion sickness.

Graphics Device: Ensure the correct GPU is selected and match the game’s resolution to your monitor’s for optimal clarity.

Resolution: Keep resolution on the same or lower than your device can handle.

Render Scale: Adjusting render scale affects game resolution and performance. Lower settings increase FPS at the cost of image quality. Upscaling technologies can improve performance with minimal visual compromise. Experiment with different upscaling options from “Ultra Performance” to “Ultra Quality” to find a balance between FPS and visual fidelity.

Supersampling: Utilizing Supersampling can enhance visual quality at the cost of performance. Useful if your hardware can handle the extra load.

Motion Blur: Reducing or disabling motion blur can make fast movements clearer and reduce visual discomfort, beneficial for players sensitive to rapid screen changes.

Depth of Field: Disabling improves clarity, especially for distant objects, with minor performance gain.

Bloom: Based on your preference. It adds more of a visual style to your game.

Sharpness: Based on your preference. It will mostly make an impact based on your Render Scale.

Anti-Aliasing: Adjust based on whether you’re using native resolution or upscaling. It smooths edges but can blur visuals when upscaling. Smoothens jagged edges. The impact on visuals vs. performance varies; higher settings improve smoothness but may blur images when combined with upscaling.

Texture Quality: Match this with your GPU’s VRAM to optimize performance without sacrificing too much quality.
