Question - snort.conf: detection engine configuration, directive

config detection: search-method <option>

where <option> is one of 7 things, ac, ac-std, ac-bnfa, acs, cs-banded, 
ac-sparsebands, lowmem

basicly low->high mem and low->high performance or combinations there of.
What would be considered 'low' or for that matter 'high', with current 
multi-core systems, is this setting still valid/useful? Or should it 
just be left to default? for that matter what is default, as I don't see 
that mentioned.
