Default Re: Which of older games to replay?

yeah man inspector lets you crank up various levels of AA, AF, force AA, multisample and transparenecy AA settings, texture filtering, sli tweaks, the list goes on.

I'll caution you though, even on older games, it's possible to tweak it to the point that they run in single digit frame rates. I'm playing mass effect 2 right now and overtweaked it to the point that it was running around 15 fps.

On the antialising settings, if you go past "4xS" and into the 8x stuff, it will bomb the frame rate. you can however, probably get away with 8x sparse grid supersampling in the transparenecy setting.

make sure you tell AA mode to be set to override any application setting or else nothing will actually be used.
