If thats what you think maxed out is you better start upgrading, and thats not a bad thing.
Maxed out to me is all settings and AF. AA on the other hand changes from game to game, but usually I like to be able to tweak the settings until I find an acceptable frame rate with the most eye candy the sytem will handle. Just Cause 2 and Metro 2033 come to mind. Those games allow that.

Dual GTX 590s, Dual 6990s, TRI GTX 580's...even the ASUS Matrix will rape that thing at full. IMO, he's just hyping up the game. I wouldn't be surprised if he was told to say that by some higher-up in order to (perhaps) drive GPU sales for the game.
"Oh crap! BF3 is coming out! I need to drop $300 on a new card!" That's the mentality of most people (I'm not talking about people here, but the general rational thinking of kids/people who play PC games.)
Well, it is possible you'll get lied to and upgrade for nothing. ( Shhh Crysis 2) Even if your not lied to, a certian company might fail to update the games actual DX version until the last possible minute.
Yeah, people here know better by now.
