Absolutely. But there are two factors to consider here. One - you're still gaining a lot by going from 55fps to up over 100fps. It means that your minimums are much higher. Anyone who's gone dual-GPU knows how smooth a game can look when framerates are consistently above 60.

Two - not all of us feel the need to 16xAA everything--especially at 2560x. I honestly think it's some sort of crack-like addiction for some just to say they can do it when the reality is that it's virtually impossible to tell the difference between 4--8--16x AA at that high a resolution. I know that when I had my G80 SLI setup that it was very difficult to tell going from 8x-16xAA, and that was at 1680x1050. I can't imagine that an image so sharp at 2560x would need that much AA.

Unfortunately, I don't have the ability to test that myself, but I will be the owner of a 1080p soon enough.
