Best form of AA?

#1XXCalibanXXPosted 9/3/2013 11:36:40 AM
More and more games are having tons of AA options across many different methods. We have FXAA, MSAA, SSAA, CSAA, TXAA, QSAA and many others along with 2x and up for each. So what is the best one to use as far as looks go? If your computer could handle it what would be the very best option graphics and looks wise? I was thinking the highest form of SSAA but I'm not so sure.

I've seen some screenshots of games downscaled from a higher resolution that look better than any normal form of AA.

Not sure which is better but I think the types are normally listed from best to worse in the options menu.

Yup, although you can do what he's talking about in any game really.
