Sorry im going to have to disagree with both of you. Just because MSAA is more taxing dosent equal better visuals, software progresses so why cant we have a AA technique that gives us good AA, performance, and visual quality?
I did a test with GW2 running different AA seeing which gave the best performance and visual (SMAA+4xSGSSAA btw came on top)
NO AA- http://i.imgur.com/Sumeor4.png
Between the two I cant find a place where SMAA blurs the visual quality.
