For me personally, I look at the lens and scene and determine a realistic upper limit. If the lens/scene combination has no hope of getting good results at ISO 1600 (just an example) then I set higher limit than ISO 1600. I have had good results with Topaz DeNoise at ISO 3200 and fair at ISO 6400. With that in mind I set 3200 most often and then make a determination if I can accept 6400 vs a slower shutter. If the action in the scene is most often faster than a walk, I set ISO 6400 as I know blur will be a bigger problem. If the action is a walk or slower, I know that I have a good chance with VR and 6 FPS to get a few keepers at 3200 (when shutter gets forced lower than my min) which is often preferred over 6400 in my case personally. It's just how my mind works as I see the line between 3200 and 6400 as a wall one must make a conscious decision to climb.

So are you shooting in S or M mode usually?

I really do float from A, S, and M with me primary being in A or M depending on the subject/scene or effect I'm after. Still a constant learning/growing experience for me in many ways.
