C. Pushing AA to 8x or 16x is retarded, however 2-4 x AA IS necessary in most games. Jaggies are ugly, and for some games, it ruins the imagery. (it's also one of those things where "once you see it, you can't unsee it"
Other than that, Ultra is Ultra. What people should say is...
A. I play Maxed out (everything to the max)
B. I play Maxed out except for AA
45-70 FPS is choppy looking? It is fluid for a youtube video as far as it goes. When i compare it with 680 1080p gameplays it pretty much looks the same. Sure larger maps would be more stressing but probably more on CPU side.
"However 2-4 x AA IS necessary
I am not native English speaker, but do you know what that word means. Air is necessary, food and water as well... 2-4 xAA is welcome at best. I accept that, and it will not NUKE fps like higher settings will, so it is ok i agree.
For me personally i like sharp edges, AA to me makes everything look like i have bad eye sight, so i dont like it, but sure 2-4x AA makes difference, for bad or for good i am not sure, depends who is judging

More powerful CPU and gforce680 , same map.
Can you notice the gap in performance? Maybe, if you are REALLY REALLY picky.
That gap will cost you one HTPC worth of $ tho Edited by Stormscion - 5/17/13 at 11:02am
