They're cleverly hidden in my sig...

I don't like jaggies either, I just don't notice them at 4xAA most of the time. There are exceptions... I am using 16xAA in Mirror's Edge because of the way that game is designed.

Sorry about that should have read your sig when I was awake,lol.I am aa anal,cant stand them.I would put out for the 295 but dont want to have to replace my 500 watt 2x 17amp 12v rails for another one.My specs are as follows:

e8500 at 4.10 457x9
4gb pc8500 at 1091
gtx 260 at 700\1200\1400
25.5 samsung t260hd
2x 32gb ssd raid 0
x-fi titanium
and bunch of other meaningless crap.

I just want to be able to play newer and current games with no jaggs and full setting which seem to be for me 16x 8x some with supersampling.Mabe the 285 wont even make a difference.

Honestly with the way things are going now, a high end quad would probably be a better investment. Games are getting more and more processor heavy.

Personally I am not even considering upgrading until I see what comes out later in the year. I'm patient like that though... and I don't have your AA needs

Did some 3DMark 06 and Vantage tests on my 285 and actually they didn't go up very much and I'm pretty sure it's my CPU holding me back. I wonder if I'd gain much by replacing this e6600 with a quad core q6600 ya think? However I did play Mirrors Edge and noticed it was actually perfectly smooth now, and Crysis I played at Very High settings @ 1600x1200 and even turned on 8X AA and 16X AF and it ran smooth and fast and I couldn't do that on the GTX 260 so it definitely helped.
