Hi all,

I splurged and bought LEGO Batman this week. Love playing it, but by default it was set for 640x480 (blurry) and I've got a 21" monitor. I bumped the video settings to 1920x1080, which was very nice, but stressed the CPU to the fan running like a wind tunnel. Has anyone found a comfortable set of video/game settings that doesn't put so much stress on the machine, yet looks good and plays well?

I should add, I have suped up my mini with an SSD and 8 GB RAM, also, so HD speed and memory swapping isn't an issue. My Mac has the Intel 3000 graphics, not the upgraded video card.
