I kinda understand you. I sometimes wish i went with 7950. Guess i bought into all that anti-amd-driver crap.

Coming from a x1900xt who served me well for 5 years i should have known better but then 660ti is still a damn good card!

I bet all my money that it is! My 660ti runs locked on 60+ fps with 2x AA. And the 7950 has bigger memory bandwith and more memory so you could probably max it out to 8x aa and still maintain a more than playable framerate.

Seriously I can't tongue.gif . I always use the good old MSAA and avoid the cheap methods of AA like FXAA/ MLAA & TXAA because they ruin the image quality for me.
In Skyrim I always used to run FXAA with my GTX 670 (due to the lack of VRAM as I install tons of texture mods). Now with 7950 I use 4x MSAA and the image quality is noticeably better between the two.
FXAA just blurs everything for me and I hate to use it now, but too bad now the newer games seem to include it as an option and remove the MSAA support.

yes! 4msaa works great in both bf3 and c3. remove msaa support? that is a wrong move.
