    Well I think no card on the market handle that very good.

    Both 5900 and 9800 is 'suposed' to manage it but as usual AA make the gaming experience to slow. (at least for me) It was the same hype when the GF4 Ti series came and those card can NOT handle AA at all.. And I have a hard time beliving that the 5900/9800 is mutch of a difference.. :2cents:

    Recently I tried both the GeForce FX 5900 and the Radeon 9800 at a computer show, unfortunately none of the machines were running the same games, so it was hard to make a direct comparison. However I would say that both products were excellent, and I would be happy to own either.

    Instead of running AA, up the resolution...it looks better, sharper, crisper, AND runs faster than using Anti-Aliasing.

    I usually run 1280x1024 AA 2x/4x, and AF, or 1600x1200 with Anisotropic Filtering ON, Anti-Aliasing OFF.
