I play all games @ 1024*768 32-bit. With ATI cards, maxing out the AF all the way doesn't give it a big performance hit. Since I'm using an 800mhz p3, I don't always enable AA. But, since I play at high resolutions, it's not a big difference.

I play every game at 1024x768@32-bit color. The only game that's fast enough to be played at 4X FSAA and 8X AF is Half-Life and the game has textures problems when enabled . I can turn on Quincunx to fix the texture problem but everything becomes blurry .

usually just stick with trilinear filtering, unless a game looks significantly better with Aniso filtering (like Morrowind), in which case i use level 4 (32-tap).
in all honesty, though, Omega's NVIDIA drivers often deliver nearly the same image quality as 32-tap anisotropic filtering, without nearly as much performance hit. however, there's some games where the increased LOD settings make the game look like **** (like the Phantasy Star Online demo). i got tired of dealing with it (and i hate Nview), so i just went back to the 23.11 detonators.
