Its about choice. Let those of us with SLI and Crossfire solutions with plenty of power to spare enable AA. All that B.S. about "performance concerns" is just beating around the bush for ATI. Its not like they have to force you to run AA. I don't think that those running 5870/5970 Crossfire setups are going to care about a 50% FPS reduction when AA is on when they already run the game at like 200+ FPS with AA off. And those pro gamers who care about every last frame they can wring out of their machine will have AA disabled anyways.

Then again, its just as much as Blizzards ****up here. A new AAA PC exclusive game, and AA is not supported? I have the same issue with the lack of support for Eyefinity/Surround, but that's another story.
