Unlike texture storage, the frame buffer can't be augmented by AGP accessible system ram, so go over the limit and the AA is turned off, rather than just getting slower, like with textures being accessed from the main system ram.
Thanks for clarification, yeah it's been a long time since I've ever seen that though...been a while since I've had a card with anemic VRAM.
