Default Re: Over 30 fps on Veryhigh with 4xAA/16xAF in 1600x1200 * WOW!

No thanks.

And I just don't understand the obsession with antialiasing either. Why the hell would you be running 4x AA at 1600x1200 if you're only getting 30fps average?

I don't even run AA in multiplayer games when I'm getting 85 fps constant because it gives extremely inconsistent performance when there are scenes with lots of explosions, smoke, or transparent effects. I really rarely use any AA at all, which is why I play most games at 1600x1200 or 2048x1536 at 60+fps constant.

Turn off the freaking AA in Crysis and it'll run significantly better.
It all depends upon what part of the spectrum you're on. I know some people that would turn the game down to 1024 x 768 if they had to just to get 90fps+. On FPS games I usually strive to keep around 60fps because the game will be smoother when you need to make quick shots. For Crysis I think it's less about playing the game and more about the eye candy, so not having AA would really bring it down a notch. I'm perfectly happy with playing the game at only 30fps, but I only play single player so should it dip into the teens it really doesn't matter.
