    Does it do anything for anyone?

    I know what screenspace ambient occlusion is, I know what it is supposed to do, but I have yet to see any noticeable difference with it enabled, besides about 10fps less. Here's some comparison shots...

    SSAO Off:

    SSAO High:

    From what I can tell the only difference is the shading next to the window boxes on the right facing side of the closest building :ugh2:

    It isn't SUPER noticeable all the time. Especially in that shot. Kind of depends on the ambient lighting.

    It basically just adds on a layer of shadowing caused by the occlusion of ambient light.

    And apparently it makes orange SUVs translucent.

    Does the game do some stupid slow mo crap for you when you turn hard in a vehicle? I don't think it's my computer as I'm seeing stable 60fps through it, and swinging the camera fast without turning doesn't really cause the same thing.. it's weird.

    Vsync locks your framerate to avoid "screen tearing" More often then not vsync makes games perform worse, I always roll with it off unless it's an old game my PC is just too powerful for. Then it is actually helpful because you will get lots of screen tearing on old games.

    yep.

    It makes JC2 run like shit. I usually leave it off too. The tearing isn't bad at all, so it is no major issue.

    Some games are fucking PACKEd with tearing with vsync off, but i've found that those games tend to do ok with it on. A lot of source games were like that on my 8800.

    It doesnt matter with the 5870, its pretty much blazing no matter what in any source game.
