As I saw some people complaining how to do it I made a video guide!

It never affected me until the blacklist was applied and I couldn't enable compositing. I am turning it off RIGHT NOW! >=(

BTW: Thanks for the link to that vid!

EDIT:----------------------------

Well, both normal and extra effects settings caused some and a lot of lag respectively. I am sticking with no effects for the time being.

However this does not change my opinion that I should have been given a choice in the matter as to whether I enabled compositing or not, it is not a blacklists choice to make, it is mine. I will be filing a bug report suggesting a change to the way blacklisted cards are handled.
