View Full Version : High resolution or high graphics effects?
2003-04-02, 09:50 PM
Are you the type to turn up your resolution to get more on the screen, or keep your resolution lower and crank up the anti-aliasing and other goodies?
I myself run high at 1280X1024 with 4XAA and 8XAF, with graphics twitches only once in a blue moon.
What's your preference?

well thats the good thing about turning up the resolution, it gets rid of jaggies and other ugly things, so then there is no need to turn that stuff on. (well unless you're playing Half-Life or one of its mod, that old as engine needs all the help it an get)

I run any game that supports it at 1024x768x32 without AA or that stuff. But turn up the GFX effects as high as possible while still maintaining at least a fps of 60+, though usually I can have full GFX and keep a higher fps.

i run games at 1024x768 32bit 4xaa 8xfa and as much eyecandy as my comp can handle and still have a smooth gaming experience.

so will I notice any difference if I turn off the AA and AF (since I'm already running at such a high resolution)?
am I just wasting GPU power?
