and in most games where framerate is a problem, it is due to the games being CPU dependent, in which case stressing your 3d card out won't degrade performance much.
the days of playing without FSAA or AF are coming to an end. each new generation of cards that comes out makes it increasingly hard to justify not using FSAA, for example. the performance hit keeps getting lower and lower.
Especially when you are forking over $400.00 for a card, why wouldn't you want the ability to run the games smoothly with AA/AF?
