Also, with AA off, you instead get EdgeAA, which isn't really AA and has a slight blur, but it also smooths the foliage, which AA does not. So, it's a trade-off. Even without AA, you still sort of get it, and then some.

If you really need AA, stick to 2x, but it's a travesty to use "just" High on a GeForce GTX 560 Ti. I play at Very High AND have alot of stuff raised even further with CVars. There's no way I'd trade that for some AA that does a bit better on the gun than the EdgeAA already does (which you'll never notice when moving), and lose the foliage AA atop that (some do prefer the sharper look but I can't stand the pixels/jaggies with the leaves).
Just curious if you can have edge aa & AA at same time?
