Is that the built-in FXAA or are you using the FXAA Injector? I use the built-in 8x AA with FXAA, and it looks pretty darn amazing.

I'm using only the built-in FXAA. Haven't installed any mods yet.

New pics up!

I prefer normal AA, FXAA Blurs the textures and things just dont look as sharp.. (though it looks great on transparency stuff like vegetation and trees.) Iif you dont believe me look closely at the stump and the far off mountains, particularly the snow spots almost centered in the screens. Pretty blatant to me :\

FXAA blurs the jaggies so you can't see them as well. But it also blurs surrounding stuff a little as well. I tried it and went back to AA because it looks so much better.

I prefer FXAA. Less of a performance hit and the foliage looks better. I just use FXAA Injector and a negative LOD Bias to sharpen the image up afterwards to combat the softness FXAA applies.

Think I have both enabled....

When you enter an X amount of AA then check the FXAA box, the FXAA overrides the AA and just uses whatever the X amount is in for FXAA. (lol if that makes sense. I think it does.)

I dont really understand all the options its confusing. You can antialiasing settings, then you have antialiasing transparency with supersamping and multisamping. Do you need to have both on or one of each? Also supersampling requires you yo choose an aa level from 2 to 8. Do you need to set the AA settings to the same amount you set transparency too?

I personally prefer AA over FXAA.

Prefer the softer look of AA, and the Milambers ENB that I use is not for FXAA. Screen from my game:
