Good job, hope it makes the front page

alright dan, That is a good idea, Later today I'll add these results to the main graph. I was somewhat surprised by these results so I did 8 runs each time with fraps and Divided the results. The results were remarkably conclusive with only 5. FPS margin for error. As you can see 2x AA and 4x AA yield practically "no" performance hit.

AF yielding in a much larger hit than both of them in Quality Mode. Does anyone remember the days when anti aliasing was harder to do than anistropic filtering? Color compression really does its work.

Keep In Mind AF with Performance/High Performance and High quality yield different results. Since this is an Anti Aliasing comparison I will keep it simple and focus on anti aliasing performance figures.
