So what cant i say, the price on the 8800gt is stunning.. and u get a really great deal. Good power. 4xAA shouldn't have that big impact on your performance in indoor environments such as the carrier and the core levels...
You mean EdgeAA. Again, i'll try it and let you know

Nice, then I should continue my game now, I really want to fight head to head against those KPA, play like a ninja is not my style.

Yeah, my results were the opposite of yours, where I averaged 30 fps in DX10 without the SP1 RC, but fps was in the teens when I installed it.

Really? That's strange. Your system is pretty similar to mine too. You sure you had SLI enabled j/k

For me it depends. If it's sort of 30-40 with the odd drop to 25 that's just OK. But if it 25-30 with the odd drop to 15 it's not enough. That's way i'm so pleased with this SP1.
