is an ATI HD 5850 different from a Radeon 5850?

That was before the ATI brand died.

Of course it can. Don't be silly.

downloading it now on steam!!! and waiting.

OK, my recommendation for you:

ultra textures


AA OFF (even I have it off). FXAA if you like blurry textures, SSAA if you like blurry texture and slide show

Shadows normal

Shadow resolution high

LOD = high. Or maybe normal (CPU dependant)

Post processing and high precision, probably on.

Tessellation definitely off

Hair quality normal (tressfx off, obviously)

DOF and SSAO on normal.

Overall, the game will look almost identical to the ultra, aside from the hair.

I also say you should disable vsync and cap at 50 fps with dxtory, but you probably won't listen to me

I have the same processor and ran it with a 4870 at 1920x1200. I had to tone down some of the details and settings a bit but I got it to run at 60fps and it still looked decent. TressFX option was grayed out. AA has to be off or extremely low. You're 5850 is considerably better so you could start bumping up some settings and have it looking pretty good at 60fps.
