you still got a great card at thoses speeds, and not only that, you can play any game with X4 supersampling turned on and it will look better then nvidia's 16Xaa supersampling, I know cause I owned 5970,5870,5850,old ati and nvidia to current cards.
ati has significant better image quality when it comes to supersampling, oh yes.
So in return less gpu and vram hit, as oppose to on my card, I have to jack the settings WAY WAY up just to look good as an ati X4 AASS and the vram hit is incredible, way over 1gb vram and major gpu hit.
you still got a nice card. I would keep it as a backup if need be.
Nvidia iq is excellent if its cranked up to like 32xS [Combined: 2x2 SS + 8x MS] + 8X SparseGrid aa but it takes absolutely tremendous gpu hit and vram BIG TIME, at theses insane settings, it does look better then X16 Supersampling Bias.
Do not run theses settings with today games unless vram is at least 2gb and multi gpu setup, even with that it will run any cards to its royal good for nothing Knees.
Older games, no problem, todays games, forget it.
I tried tera online, and I back down to 8xSQ [Combined: 2x2 SS + 2x MS] +2/4 SparseGrid aa and the game doesnt even comes close to 30 fps and both gpus are @ 100%. Looks incredible at higher aa settings but fps moves to 1 fps, lol, not enough vram and gpu power.
