Default video settings

I just got my puter up and running. I have a 8800 gtx. 20 inch widescreen monitor. What should my resolutions and settings be? I played battlefield 2 and
didn't think the graphics are all the great.

I don't think so. I'm just getting everying up and running. I don't have any programs installed to give me a temp. Windows 64 bit version - every disc I put in that comes with hardware says it can't be installed. I have all Window drivers
so far.

It's the same thing as the 32 bit version. It might be a little behind on drivers. I think (hope) I made the right choice going with the 64 rather than the 32.
