I have a HD5970 paired with a medium good CPU and typically don't use shadows because it is has some impact on the FPS. Yep, pretty ridiculous to pair that GFX with a fairly weak CPU but that's what I did.
I have another system with weaker GFX but a higher end i7 and there I use shadows sometimes.

nvidia 6800 Using /shadows 2 (only unit shadows, no terrain shadows) most of the time. Works good for the small to medium games which I mostly play. (<=16x16 maps) In large games I turn shadows off once it starts to feel laggy but it quickly gets to a point where it does not even matter anymore To me shadows are pretty important for the graphics, more important then ie high water setting or lups.
ZK is currently unplayable shadows on or not, dunno whats the reason...
Since some time zK, evo & gundam (only those 3) are basically unplayable even on super low settings. Dont know reason either, might be lups/chili/graphic driver though I already experimented with all those.
