Yep that was it! Turned off DoF and my blurry issue went away. I also upgraded to the new Beta drivers and went to SMAA based on the preview testing I read about earlier from Kyle and the HardOCP crew. I am now getting around that 50-60 FPS mark give or take a few FPS on Ultra. I left Ambient on MHBAO and turned off DoF only. Runs and looks great now!!
Since we have similar rigs, I went ahead and used your settings, I gained a good 10+ FPS with high speed driving (45-52ish with dips to the high 30's), and it seems smoother, but its not as nice to look at, its borderline Mafia II bad now lol.
