Default Nvidia control panel and forcing settings in game

Just wondering what you all thought about forcing things like anisotropic filtering, FXAA and texture filtering on through the nvidia control panel. I don't think it would cause any adverse results being that these features are not available in game(swtor). (perhaps texture filtering might conflict) To me it seems reasonable that these features would enhance the graphics of the game. I have a gtx 680 so I think my system can handle it. Am I correct or am I missing something? Thanks for any feedback! Not sure where to post this, I hope here is okay.

I've never had any issues forcing AA and/or AF in games using the Nvidia Panel. It's especially nice to have 32xAA in Minecraft

Nothing is more permanent than a temporary fix that works.

Ever since they came out with this I have forced 16x AF in every single title that my PC has had installed. Most also get 8xAA if and when my PC can handle it. I also like to force Transparency AA for extra eye candy.
Thing with this is, not all games allow the force.
