    Ya I agree with "ranalli," no gains to BF2. That game is the one I am sure they are receiving most of the problems about. Nice move on ATI not even thinking about BF2!!!!

    Anti-Aliasing visual quality has drastically decreased for me!!! 4x looks like 2x (maybe 1.5x. lol) Anyone else seeing this issue?? it happens with all games. everything else is cool though. no real improvements though.
