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

One reason I don't play console games.

Playing a slide show game of Halo with 2 xboxes linked at a game party was like sticking nails in my eyes.

As far as AA, its all personal preference I guess.

I prefer extremely high resolutions so I can actually get more detail out of the scene (rather than just blending out other details). At 2048x1536 the aliasing is barely noticeable and I don't get the fluctuating performance and mouse lag that tends to come with anti aliasing. Don't get me wrong, AA looks great. I just don't really notice it anywhere near as much as low framerates.

This is why I haven't moved to an LCD yet. The resolutions are too low unless I spend $500 on a 24" or larger.

Anyway... 30fps average is not smooth as silk. It may be smooth enough for some, or even most people, but you can't just say that because Crysis is "special" that fluctuating between 10 and 40fps is perfect.
