Suppose I have the following two calculations:

$MinPrecision=50
NIntegrate[f[x],{x,0,1}]

And

NIntegrate[f[x],{x,0,1},WorkingPrecision->50]

Assuming that all parameters in f[x] are to arbitrary precision, is there a difference between these two operations? To put it another way, is WorkingPrecision just the local form of $MinPrecision, or is there more to it?
