The Visual Effects slider adjusts the quality of the visual effects, such as shadows and light reflection and is dependent on the quality of your graphics card. The largest difference is between medium & high because high enables HDR which allows spill lights.

For explanations of each rendering option, you can hover the mouse over it for a tool tip hint, or see this section of the manual.
