Depends on how many jaggies there are in the particular game. In my humble opinion, 4xAA is enough for most games to look their best.

Personally I dont think 32xcsaa looks any good, however 16xqcsaa looks amazing, then with 8xmsaa also closely behind

It depends on the game. Generally higher levels look better, but something like 8xQAA is as good or better than 16X regular AA.

I recommend always using the in-game AA option when available, and only using 'forced' AA using profiles for specific games in the NVCP. And making sure that the 'forced' AA actually works (i.e. you see lower FPS, etc) because on MANY games it does not and there's no point having it on if the game doesn't support it.

You can also try adding some Transparency AA on top of regular AA on any game you want (via NVCP), but again it often doesn't work, and it's very resource intensive so you should definitely see a 'cost' in FPS if it's working.
