@Ticreut29

Good for you getting a new monitor, but I've already told you, we know all that,
so there are NO news there and we ALL have that part in Nvidia Control Panel.
So, PLEASE STOP SPAMMING here!

@BenganJ - First post update?

Add to bottom of Q&A's...
Q - How can i increase scaling without losing AA?
A - Scaling must always be 100%. You can however use DSR to increase game resolution. See note 4.

Note 4:
This is for single monitors only as DSR doesn't work with Nvidia surround.
Nvidia Control Panel
Manage 3D settings
Global settings
DSR factors
Tick 1.20x, 1.50x, 1.78x, 2.00x or 4.00x.
Set desktop resolution to new DSR resolution.
Set in game resolution to new DSR resolution.

That'll make 4xMSAA + 4xSGSS look a bit better.
FPS will drop as you increase resolution further.
Or try 2xMSAA + 2xSGSS with higher DSR values to reduce FPS drop.

As long as the in game resolution and desktop resolution are kept the same, then there's no problem with game defaulting back to native resolution on each restart despite showing the DSR resolution in graphics settings.

======

Note 1 amendment.

'2x [2x Multisampling]'
'2x Sparse Grid Supersampling'

'4x [4x Multisampling]'
'4x Sparse Grid Supersampling'

The higher values listed below are currently only providing 4x Multisampling.

'8xQ [8x Multisampling]'
etc

@JHTrucker

Thanks, now I don't have to write that myself, but as I've done this myself and
in the end settled for this scheme, I also added an alternative solution to the
problem with low FPS, instead of lowering the AA level. Check it out and make
comment, please!

@All

Sadly the Internet is quite overloaded now, so it isn't that meaningful to link
to a YouTube video showing my present status. It takes ages to process the
uploaded video and even longer before it gets encoded in the VP9 codec.
Watching a video often stutters and such too. But here is a ready one, so
have a go at it and see if it works for you!

when I install the hotfix 445.78 my silk smoothness disappear and NPI don't work, so I need to stay on drivers 442.59, it's cause less problem to NPI.

@Ticreut29

Right! As I've said earlier MANY times, I NEVER update my driver until I see
that it works properly. Check on GeForce forum regularly and DON'T jump on
every new driver immediately! I'm still at 442.19 and I have NO PROBLEMS!
