    I'm trying to force SLI 64x CSAA and SLI 16x SSAA in Modern Warfare 3 (on my GTX 470s) since I really don't need the second card for any kind of rendering but I can't tell if it's working or not. Now maybe I just have bad eyes but I'm thinking it might not be working. How do I figure out if it's working for sure?

    You would know it was working by the 7fps you were getting ;)

    MSI AB ? Not sure which OSD show those settings

    Err, no actually it's in the nvidia control panel. Would it go that low even with SLI at those settings?

    How much higher?

    gpu usage dosnt indicate aa level

    u can try it with fluidmark for example, iirc it can stress more gpu with less aa


    u can use MSI AB's On Screen Display (OSD) to see AA setting among others ingame

    Hilarious post.
    If you can't notice if it's working, then why bother using it? :3eyes:
    The difference between no AA at all and 16x SSAA is IMPOSSIBLE not to notice unless you're standing maybe 20 feet from the screen.

    Or unless he has an extremely high resolution, like infinite :p

    The best way to spot the changes done by AA is to first find some type of edge that has a distinct stair step to it. After you turn AA on take a look at that same edge. You could also take a screenshot before and after AA for an edge, then compare them.

    Well how the hell am I supposed to know that? Isn't the point of a forum so that people can learn things and give info to others to help them? So why call the people asking questions idiots? ****wad.

    Grahf is right.

    use an aa setting where you can actually see an improvement in image quality, not what you know should be "better" looking.
