What do you like to do first? Lower settings or lower the resolution? I usually lower setting and even turn off AA if I have too. Sometimes I'm just picky about having constant 60 FPS

Turn the settings down and AA. Turning down the resolution makes the game look much worse on a 1440p monitor. Well it's the same for any non crt monitor really.

It really depends on the game. Sometimes AA is easy to turn down without it being noticeable and sometimes the AA is horrible and distracting.

Usually shadows is the first setting I turn down because unless I'm specifically looking at shadows, they're easy to ignore...AA/AF would probably be second, texture resolution might be third.

Like I said, it's really on a game-by-game basis. Whatever is least distracting gets lowered first.

I lower settings. Resolution is a MUST for me.
