"Optimal quality" JPEG Compression: Worthwhile?

As I am only an enthusiastic amateur, I've only used JPEG on my D700 (as opposed to RAW). However, I have always been on "Optimal Quality" JPEG compression and, I'll tell you, some files are huge.

Is that level of compression (as compared to "Size priority") really worth it?
