DISCLAIMER: Performance for ENB presets will differ from user to user depending on your system specs. I have an under-powered computer and ENB presets give me a far greater framerate hit than they will other users. Here are my specs:

Core2Duo E8500 @3.16ghz
4gb 1600mhz RAM
1GB ATI HD 6850

After posting my other comparison:

People wanted to know the framerate impact of each preset. This should help :)

With my mediocre computer, I have a difficult time running any but the most optimized of ENB presets. If you're like me and want the benefits of ENB, but need help choosing one that doesn't kill your framerate, perhaps this will help.

I took my favorite presets and some performance presets and with those, I snapped 900+ screenshots, using FRAPS, with the framerate showing in each screenshot, so you can see the exact impact it has on my setup.

24 ENB presets
900+ Screenshots

If you want a more in depth image comparison, minus the performance, check out my other "mod":

It contains a full 90+ ENB presets, but I didn't have the fps counter enabled for those shots.
