I used 1.9.4.4., and 266.58 to activate AA in DS1 (with SSAO). If it doesn't work we might have to wait for a new driver or something. The system requirements are exactly the same as DS1 and there have been a lot of speculation that the rendering engine is the same as well.

This combination did it. Thank you sir!

100% improvement in visuals imo. Prior, any straight edge with enough light was horrendous.

So is it out or not?
I am still thinking which version to get. PC or 360.... Its like 1680x1050 sharp 100000fps kb+mouse vs big screen, 5,1 and comfy couch experience (with 720p and jaggies all over it)

I doubt I'll be able to activate it at 7680x1600.
I seem to average around 130-150fps at 1920x1080, just keeping an eye on FRAPS mind you. With 4xAA enabled my averages are a good deal lower. Anywhere from 75-100fps. So that's a pretty good hit.

Like I said though, this is just me playing while watching FRAPS - I haven't done an actual benchmark through it yet.

I hope so for you. It makes a huge difference. That said though, I'd still play the heck out of it without too.

YMMV?

DS 1&2 are such great games and the jaggies are so brutal..

naaahhh... Jaggies in Dead Space 1 were not noticable at all! When running game at my screen native 1680x1050 and in gam "aa" turned on, game looked incredibly well while performing butter smooth
Original dead Space screens from two years ago made by myself!!! Where are the Jaggies tell me ?!

I lowered my settings to 2x [2x Multisampling] and set AF back to application control. Still looks great and the performance hit is much, much less noticeable.

I clearly stated early on that not all areas of the game show jaggies with no AA.

Meh - you worry about your preferences and I'll worry about mine.
