DS2X :D or if you have a meatier GPU then DS4X. And if your mental and have a quad SLI titan setup then consider DS9X

DS9X is that girl you always wanted but she only appears in your dreams ;)

>>MSAA vs High, which is better?

High will look better, but it will have a greater impact on performance than MSAA (high is just a higher version of MSAA). If you can use DS2X, I would recommend that and you can combine it with FXAA or SMAA depending on which you prefer..

I have a 980 and was using high

Is high still MSAA just more of it?

DS2X V MSAA how do they compare fps wise, I'm only on a GTX770 currently have MSAA with medium SMAA thanks

can you even use smaa and msaa together?

Could do it with my GTX 970 SLI but only if the track is dry... And with low details... So I can't haha

MSAA will be the lowest overall impact AA setting, but that also means it doesn't smooth out the image as well as other methods. I would recommend trying DS2X on your system and see how it performs.

Thanks Kyle, just one other thing what is the best thing to use to get rid of any shimmering effects on cars and fencing. I have reflections on low, I'm wondering If it has anything to do with the first column settings, rays etc? Cheers

If you are using MSAA, that will creating some shimmering (pixel creeping). Try using DS2X with FXAA and it will reduce the shimmering. Here's a good post on the various modes:

Yup.

MSAA + DS2X seems to be the best combo for me with Radeon HD7770. I get pretty rock solid 48-50 FPS with 25 cars on most tracks (of course, can drop to 30-35 FPS with stormy rain - but I find it still smooth enough for my slow 64 year old eyes to cope with). MSAA alone is bit too shimmery. The combo is the best compromise for me now - until AMD come up with their monster super driver update that is gonna gain us 50% more fps and allow more higher settings including AA ... right? :friendly_wink:

Both MSAA and High are 4xMSAA, but High has been specifically tweaked by SMS and gives better results, but at a higher frame rate cost.
Both MSAA and High are good on vertical lines (e.g. fence & lamp posts).
MSAA results in some white dots around the edges of e.g. cars, High avoids this.
