High Quality AA and AF

Cranking up the detail and turning AA and AF up, you can see some great performance from the GTX 580 Lightning Xtreme Edition here. Only under Aliens vs. Predator does it fall ever so slightly below that average we need, but moving to 2x AA would give us more than enough FPS. As for the other games, you can see we've got some really strong performance and playable numbers.
