Graphics settings recommendations
Ultra graphics + Ultra textures settings specs = 4GB 780TI or 290X or higher recommended for this settings High graphics + Ultra textures settings specs = GTX670 or equivalent for a stutter free experience I believe that you may now be able to turn off DOF and still see it during cinematics.
Beware that you may play with Low and medium without any major lost in visual quality.Also know that FPS will go down when using Ultra textures. Know that after playing on ultra for some time the game will create a cache to improve the texture loading. This will get rid of the stuttering after you run WD on Ultra a few times.
Important mod Information
This version will be totally tweakable meaning. You may choose Low, Medium, High, Ultra and Custom or even mix a match between those settings. These settings have been tweaked and optimized for better quality and performance. They are much better than vanilla settings and you get all the eye candy. This mod include modified high and ultra textures. meaning you will see some ultra textures when playing with high textures and you WILL BE ABLE to play on Ultra with minimal or no stuttering nevertheless I would recommend you to put the graphics settings on high or medium when playing with ultra textures due to an FPS hit. you might be surprise how well it looks. My high graphics settings are superior than vanillas Ultra settings and much more optimised for quality and performance. Same goes to my medium setting and low. The ultra settings are much more superior to vanillas Ultra settings and therefore quite taxing on your system, nevertheless it has been optimized as much as possible so you can achieve good performance.Only the HQ mods feature the modified textures and tweakable settings. Only Ultra settings have been optimized on The Atmosphere mods version 1,2,3 and 3.1

This mods is aimed to those who want more graphic fidelity and smoother game play. This mod has been tested with a GTX670 and GTX670 SLI only so I cannot account for poor performance on lower systems. If you wish to run SLI which is kind of broken in this game. you may do so with high textures, ultra settings and Fxaa or MSAA 4x
