anyway, the real question is: why didn't nvidia make a 100% compatible aa mode with much better quality than msaa/csaa?
To enjoy the SSAA or Combined modes, you need a monster gfx card. SSAA is virtually compatible with any rendering technique, and offers superior texture filtering quality. The problem is the speed. I hope to see a 512bit GDDR5 monster not so far
