There are those people?
I would figure that if you had the brains or money to buy a 780 that you would run it as high as you can.
Or if you were stupid and rich enough to buy a prebuilt machine with a 780 that you would also be stupid enough to just use the (ok) pre-detected graphical settings games give you without modifying it?
There is a medium? Who is this super man you are telling me about? Is there such a person?
Oh absolutely. They're the same mlg pros that brag about it being easier to see people on low than ultra (which is probably true) they're also the people that ban for using color tweaker because it gives an "un-fair advantage" A friend I used to play with has an i7 and a 7970 he used to play bf3 with everything at low (he had a 720p monitor too)
These kinds of people remind me of the guy I met in a 24/7 damavand peak server who claimed listening to FLAC while in game will lower your fps more than if you were to listen to mp3s. IIRC Ravic plays on low with everything off all the time to maintain a constant 120fps (even when recording)
EDIT: lol I just looked up the Ravic dude's pc specs and he literally has a 780 and "usually plays on low" so he's a perfect example of some one who does that.
