i have a questions.
Some games dont have the option to enable AA or AS, or the other stuff.

I do know you can do this through nvidia CP, but do i have to add the game to the list or use the one they have if its there.

And what options do I have to enable? theyre so many AAs and as's?

I want to try enabling it in madden, fifa, moh-airborne demo, etc etc

Anisotropic filtering
Anisotropic filtering - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Reading that i assume the higher the # the better it is. So try it at x16

Antialiasing - gamma correction?
Gamma Correction in Computer Graphics
Turn it to on.

Antialiasing - Mode
NVIDIA World / Antialiasing today
Turn it to enhance the application setting.

Antialiasing - Setting
Turn it to x16q, which is better than x16

Antialiasing - Transparency
nV News - BFG GeForce 7800 GTX OC Review - Page 8 of 10
Turn it to Super sampling to get the best quality.
Multisampling is for speed, supersampling is for looks i think.



edit: you may have to turn some of these settings lower if your PC cant handle it, and the higher the settings, the lower your FPS is going to be (i think)

but Looks>FPS?

again im no expert on this stuff, so take my advice with a grain of salt

I'm thinking of purchasing an ATi Card to fold, and I'm not sure which ATi card to get. How does your x1950xtx run?
i loved my x1950xtx... it was an amazing card... but if your gonna spend that much.. might as well throw down for the 2900xt
