It's the level of anti-aliasing (edge smoothing) in the game. The higher the better, but the higher it is, the harder your graphics card has to work. I believe 8x CSAA is the best, but I could be mistaken.

AAA is analytical anti-aliasing. It is less taxing, "fake" AA. Basically it doubles the resolution of the picture using an algorithm and scales it back to the original resolution. It is almost like AMD's Morphological AA.

MSAA (multi-sample anti-aliasing) is just your normal AA that you are used to in other games.
