Hmm I wonder why I sometimes see up to 1900 Vram usage without AA in BF3 than. Interesting.

 

Of course I can disable Windows Aero to have lower Vram but no reason to do so since my Vram is 4GB.

Is Windows Aero playing such a significant role in full-screen (even if windowed) games? I remember I set one game to turn off aero upon start (D3), and overall performance was actually slowed somehow.

Types of AA and Window Aero!!!!!!!!!! -questions and concerns!!!!!!!!!!!!

AA:

Everyone knows what AA is -basically removes jagged edges and makes objects smoother

Can someone explain in laymen’s terms the different "types" of AA: wiki doesn’t really explain it too well (at least for me)
AA:
FXAA:
MSAA:
QSAA:
Any other "types" of AA?

1) What is the difference between them
2) Performance hit for each one?
3) Why games have two different types of AA if not more.
4) Is ANY of them needed at 1440p gaming? -I know that AA is not used because at the pixel density you won’t notice much of a difference but what about the other ones?

Window Aero:

I also heard of Disabling Windows Aero. - I think its just makes your desktop fancier

1) Can someone confirm?
2) Does it really improve performance (FPS) if Windows Aero is turned off?
3) How to turn it off?
4) What else does Windows Aero do?

**does any of this matter if I play in FULL windows mode??

I play in FULL windows mode so I can mouse-over to LEFT/RIGHT monitors.

Thanks guys

I think this should be in the OP =)

If you have GTA IV than you check in real time. When running at 2560x1600 and changing between the AA options you can see a difference. Is it large? Heck no. If you can stay above 60FPS (I can't in that game) then leave it on. If not, take it down until you are satisfied with the frame rate.

I never tried it but people I know that tells the truth and dont say BS, always says that there IS a difference in disabling Windows Aero. I never tried it with my 2GB card though, and now that I have a 4GB GPU, i dont really care about it.  But again, yeah, Windows Aero seems to play an important role on vram usage.

Hmmm I will try to tell best I can, but please if I am wrong, than someone should correct me.

What games use mostly is MSAA and it is a very demanding AA feature but works just fine.

QSAA is an even better version of MSAA hence more demanding.

FXAA is only offered by Nvidia and it covers the entire screen so that while it does remove some jaggies, it might have an impact on overall visual quality a little. However the performance impact of FXAA is like 5%. I remember using FXAA all the time while gaming in 3Dvision, and now in 1440p I also turn on FXAA for some games. Like in Fear 1 and it DOES help and makes a difference. I like it.

 

About Windows Aero, yes it has a performance impact, and as far as I know it is there for the looks and smoothness of the desktop. I personally like it, but you can live without it, its no biggie.

IS GTA4 that demending? Surely you are using mods though right? I wonder how GTA5 will be like. It would suck to have 2 670s and average 30-40 fps in 1440p.

i currently use this. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009255

Does anything look better? or is it just bigger and nice resolution? And will i handle this with a single gtx 580, i will use my gaming rig. i play skyrim, bf3, i'd like 30+ fps on high with 0 AA..
