MSAA is better at fixing geometry than FXAA can be simply because MSAA is rendering geometry at 2x, 4x or 8x the resolution. Whether it's noticeable in the game or not is another matter.

I stand corrected,thanks for the demonstration. I remember where I heard that from,it was the guy that does those motherboard.org videos on Youtube. It's obvious that he is wrong,you can tell.

I don't have a stock card,the deal is that I use to do the bare bones deals. So when I decided to do cards,I went for the pretty box that had the $40 price tag on it. Come to find out,games had progressed. After about a year I bumped my head twice. I bought another card a few years back the same way,without doing research and still was not up to date. I do recall asking the sales guy "is this a good card"...LOL.

Trying to play open world games like Fallout is too much for a $60 card with a locked cpu@3GHZ and 2GB of DDR3 ram. Hell Command and Conquer 3 run slow and lags when the screen get too populated with action.

When you OC,do you use progs,or the Bios? It seems you have to OC your cpu,and your ram at the same time.

ALSO. nope you can overclock your cpu then ram, i find the best thing to do is knock the ram clocks low, then overclock your cpu and if you bump into any problems you know its not your ram causing any instability, you can always overclock your ram after smile.gif
