Default Graphic options-Unfair advantage?

Ok say youre realy rich and you have all the latist gear for your PC so you can knock up all the settings, willl you have an unfair advantage over people with less good gear.

List of things:
Shadows
Sounds
Testures
Higher res

now say you have all these you could have a better advantage than somoine with less because they have no shadows, therefore if somone was coming around the corner you could see there shadow and be more aware.

but say you had lower settings you could turn ambient sound off or whatever and hear peoples footsteps better?

Discuss!

Shadows- you don't have them = lose a major advantage of seeing movement
Res + anti aliasing need to be high if you want to spot/engage at range
but generally, need high FPS

FPS is the most important if you ask me, in which case a well speced computer wins.

There are few things that help gameplay via Video settings. TweakGuides.com - Battlefield 2 Tweak Guide

Effects: gives tracers/trails more detail, so you can tell where that GL/HAT/LAT came from.
Geometry: Vehicles and characters render at longer distances.
Texture: helps ID targets, but mainly for prettiness.
Terrain: depends on the player. Can s/he see an enemy better against high quality ground or low quality ground?
Lighting: doesn't help much, but is needed for Dynamic Shadows. You could be hiding in shadows, while some low GFX can see an easy target clearly.
Dynamic Shadows: true, you can see the shadow coming. Advantage.
Dynamic Lighting: true, you can see muzzle flashes, lighting up their position. Advantage.
Texture filtering: helps ID the target.
View Distance: should be 100%. Anything less, and you're punishing yourself.

with low settings it's so much easier to spot enemies. Therefore actually having low settings is more usefull than having high.

PR is the only game I play and I see no reason to spend a couple of hundred euros to set everything on max, my geekness only goes so far. For any other application my system runs just fine.

Advantage or not, just the ability to play PR at its most beautiful form at the highest settings is far more important in my opinion. Just enjoy the game.

you might have a higher-end, speced comp than Bill Gates for all I care, but if you suck donkeyballs when it comes to aim, teamplay and tactics, I'll still shoot your ass before you shoot me.
