Hey I am in need of some advice for the Nvidia CP Settings for the card I have. I have never really ever touched them before so I was wondering. Here is what I changed it too recently...

Oh BTW! My card is @ 24c-25c and its 17c-18c in my room (64F-66F) Got to wear a sweater but my card stays cool ^_^

Its better to keep everything at default. And make single profile for every game you have. using the Program Settings tab in the same page.

Universal setting I've always used.

Image Quality - High Quality
Multi-display/mixed-GPU acceleration - Single Display Performance Mode
Power Management - Prefer Maximum Performance
Triple Buffering - On
Vertical Sync - Force On

Everything else is relative to the application itself and you should use a profile for it.
Meaning, if the game/app itself supports anisotropic/anti-aliasing, use the settings in the game/app itself instead of Nvidia's drivers, they're there for games/apps that don't have it built-in. Sometimes it's for good reason, such as older games that from within the game itself didn't support HDR + AA at the same time.

What should I set the Pre-Rendered Frames to? 2 or 3? I heard some people set it to 2 for monitors and 3 for high response time TVs.

I don't set V-Sync and Triple Buffering On in CP because I like to set it in game. I never get screen tearing really.

I'd leave it at default

In MW2 I get only a 4x AA Option, In Crysis I get a 16x AA and a 16xQ AA Option, and in Black Ops I get a 16x AA option. So Should I force CP to run 16x AA and 16x AF?

It's best to use the game's built-in versions. It won't hurt to force it on in the drivers though, but, if you do, make sure you turn off that particular setting in the game.

You're playing games at 1920x1080, 4x AA is really the most you should use, I'm not trying to think for you, just giving my opinion.

Are you really going to see a difference after 4x AA?

It's relative to the game and other factors too, such as the game itself + view distance etc..

Some games benefit more than others, you have to test and see if there's a performance decrease and also monitor Vram usage and decide if it's worth it.

What is the difference between Normal AA, MultiSample AA, SuperSampling AA, and Full Screen AA. I know AMD has a method called Morphological AA as well. There as so many O_o.
