Hello  I have a HD 7800 series and it Looks Horrible, Jaggies everywhere.

Not sure if I'm missing something but it sure doesn't seem like a card  of this caliber even works. I have tried for weeks Tweaking Settings and Dissapointment  has set in,  Anyone have any ideas ??  Thanks for your time.

Thaks for the reply and Sorry for being Vague.

System Specs   AMD  Fx-8350  4.0 ghz  usually running at 4.4 ghz, Gigabyte  ga970a ud 3  motherboard , 16 gig corsair ram

XFX double D 7870 ghz edition 2 gig 256 bit. Factory clock setting.

Corsair tx 750 p/s   m4 128 ssd  O/S  win 7 64 bit   Cm4 256 fsx only

seagate 1 tb hdd  for everything else. newest 12.11 beta driver installed.

Trying to use CCC for Anti Alasing and filtering and it doesn't look any better than my onboard,  wavy lines everywhere, i have tried just about

every combination and it just isn't sharp  my menus are washed out and ground textures are the same. jaggy lines just about  everywhere.


Not sure if there is some other way to sharpen up the edges so to speak

but i'm not impressed with spending the amount of money that i did for little improvement (i guess)  i just figured this card would be the one.

unless i just have a bad driver but i have tried a few older ones and i get the same result.


Thanks for your time

Are you using FSX in DX9 or DX10 mode?

You cant force antialias in CCC in DX10 mode, you must enable it in in-game menu, but its limited to x2. However, you can set AA mode to Supersampling in CCC, it looks really nice even with just x2 mode available in DX10.

If you use DX9, you can either enable AA in game, or in CCC, it should just work fine both ways.

I use FSX in DX10 mode with Supersampling enabled, and it look really nice - not only there are no "jaggies", but also no "shimmering" on foliage (trees, grass).
