Agreed. Half Life 2' shows absolutely nill difference with transparent multisampling. I felt that Far Cry/WoW showed a nice improvement though Thats the reason I opted to include Far Cry in this comparison because it became a somewhat common misonception that TMAA didnt do anything for IQ due to those Half Life 2 shots. Which is IMO not the reviewers fault. But the time constraints ((I mean the review cards really werent out until the very end.)) Not enough time to do any real indepth analysis and most people just used the images nvidia reccomended with the biggest improvements.

But either way I guess I got confused by what you said. Since I finally have gotten back to WoW. I have really gotten a chance to see it in action. ((That game is loaded with Foliage that had this kind of problem)) And its really beautiful and has to be seen to be appreciated.

Agreed, an excellent guide. Now, the wait for mature drivers.

To be honest. I'm not entirely sure. This is what I was told by the powers that be. I use a DVI --> VGA adaptor so I cant answer your question.

Is there something I have to do to unlock the new AA settings? I set it to advanced but I still dont see them like in your pics. Thanks for any help

Edit- Using latest official drivers from nV(77.72)

Should be available if you turn on the advanced setting menu. Which is drag down menu in the same control panel area.

Thanks. I decided it was about time to reformat and all is working well now. Although, I have noticed that AA quality gets worse when I go from 1600 to 1920; its like it goes into 2x mode or something. This is very noticable in games like WoW. Has anyone noticed this?
thx

Might want to be sure its actually rendering 4xAA. Nvidia drivers tend to adjust AA levels if you go above your designated framebuffer space. Though 4xAA at that resolution should be possible.

Hmmm...I'm going wrong somewhere, I'm getting a minimum fps of 42 and an average of 79 with Far Cry at 1600x1200 4xtaa and 8af. Any suggestions?
