Aggressive is the worst of the settings.. providing something closer to bilinear filtering (using the same performance aniso).
this is only true of the GeForceFX! when using any other card Application/Quality/Performance will use true trilinear if it is supposed to(ie, the game/benchmark/demo whatever) is set to trilinear.

I've seen some quality and application settings used in reviews related to the quality of the trilinear filtering (and I'd like to see more of those as well). Balanced/Quality seems to be worse in that area than performance.
I for one don't have access to a GeForceFX. MikeC is still working on the NV31/34 review, he should have lots of screenshots from multiple games when it's published. I will definitely link to it if that is the case.

There have been some reports of AA not working. I would like to see some of these screenshots. Performance obviously goes down. The real question if it is truly done in the balanced/quality setting. Reports show that using the application setting fixes this problem (if this is the case, that's a huge problem).
it seems to be a mixed bag. some people have problems, some people don't. it's not a global problem.

dammit! I accidently deleted part of your post. yet another edit/quote mix up. that's twice today, and twice ever..........sorry!
