AA and AF do wonders if you can actually use them. Stop talking down on it like its not suposed to be there..... You mad that you cant use it or something?
I have a 24" and I find AA isn't that important. yeah it looks a BIT better but it doesn't do that much.

Makes a hell of a difference to me.

In single player, I like all the pretty-pretties, all the graphics and stuff. I'm happy if I can get 30FPS and good quality in SP.

In MP, all I care about is the FPS. If I can get shadows and decals (things that can give me clues in a game as to where my opponent is), then that's great, but I NEED 60FPS flat.

Because maybe some people don't like silly jagged edges.

I play ALL my games with a lot of Anti-Aliasing, even if it means sacrificing other options. I just think it looks far better smoother.

Where did the all Anti-Aliasing haters come from? It is a good thing in every situation I can think of, other than the performance hit.

Oh sorry I forgot opinions aren't allowed here.
/sarcasm

I do enjoy my eyecandy. i didn't put the DX10 mod on my XP just to see my frames go lower. And maybe I should be more specific. In CRYSIS I don't see a big difference with no AA and full AA. AF makes a big difference in that game but to ME AA not so much. other games like TF2 AA makes a huge difference. I love AA sometimes but others it isn't needed.
