Too much raw speed is useless. Maybe i'm insane, but i can't see the difference bectween high res & 2XAA and high res & 4XAA.
Same thing for Aniso. I don't want more than level 4 in most cases.
And really, if you don't use 4XAA and level 8 aniso, err, the R300 is way too fast for today's games.
So, to say this more simply, i'd prefer to buy a slow DX8 card ( Ti200 for example ) than a fast DX7 card ( Mx460 ) if they were the same price.
