Advanced AA settings do work in DX9, so only DX10 is affected. I guess I have to use the ingame AA settings from now on.
that's good news so far. at least it's on par and not worse so far. i realize the game is major CPU Dependant but it would seem kinda weird for a new card like that to make it worse.

On a side note slaWter what kind of ram usage are you getting with vista64.
i have vista but got impatient with it a while back (pre sp1). i am thinking about putting it back on cause I'm constantly running out of ram with fsx since i got a quad. i believe xp only can handle 2gigs per application so i always get the "fsx has run out of memory"
