Default GTX260 - FSAA castration?

After my 8800GTX was dying on me last week, I exchanged the card for a GTX260. Now FSAA doesn't seem to work in quite some games!? With the 8800GTX there was always a way to force FSAA, either by setting the appropriate compatibility bits via nhancer or renaming the .exe. With the GTX260 games like Alpha Prime, Resident Evil 4 or Stalker (FSAA indeed worked with later forceware) refuse to apply any form of FSAA.

So, did Nvidia really cancel FSAA compatibility for some apps on the GTX2xx cards? Or is it the drivers? (tested with the 180.43...)
