GoPro HD Hero 2 video settings?

For all you guys that have GoPro HD Hero 2 (Outdoor Edition) what is your prefered camera/video settings? Just like how there's settings options for like 720p, 960p, 1080, etc., what do you guys use? Does it even matter? And slow motion is cool but since I don't do any thing remotley slow motion worthy, like tricks, the my top priority is quality. I have one because in the summer I mountain bike and Bmx and the GoPro is cool for that so don't think that I'm dumb that I bought a GoPro when I just started snowboarding. I actually got it like 366 days ago so yeah. Thanks!

720/60 is best

Most editing programs allow you to take screenshots from a video. I don't really use the multi-photo feature when I'm boarding.

I use 960, 48fps but I might change it up and see how they turn out.
