Default DirectX 10, BioShock and Anti-aliasing

So what's the verdict? I've read some posts at the Guru3D forums that say that the newer drivers 175.xx and on let you force Anti-aliasing in BioShock under DirectX10 mode. Is this true? Has anyone tried it?

It might even have been a driver released FOR Bioshock(at the time).
So, it doesn't work now?

Dang! Well I hope they release a new patch with AA to coincide with the release of the PS3 version.

It does work for me with 2x2 supersampling using nhancer. It looks beautiful. This card is a beast.
-edit- wow..just turned on 4x4 supersampling and....it works wonderfully. Right now I'm on a 1280x1024 monitor but...wow. That's a blown up resolution of like 4560x4048 and it runs it at a constant 60fps in directx10 mode...wow. It's definately in too..I had my face right up on the monitor to believe what I saw..that's crazy

here's proof. I'm on a 1280x1024 monitor right now so here are the screens. 4x4 supersampling and it never not once went below 60fps. It works. Don't have photoshop had to use MSPaint's horrible awful compression. Using 177.41 drivers.
