New nVidia User - What Settings in Control Panel for DCS?
 
OK guys, so I changed my PC, and for the first time since using DCS I am now using a nVidia GPU.
I have read somewhere that it is recommended to use FXAA in nVidia Control Panel rather than the MSAA in DCS. Is this correct? Bear i mind I am almost exclusively using VR.
Are there other nVidia specific settings I should be aware of?
Any help appreciated.

Most of the settings in Nvidia control panel don't work in VR.

Thanks for that. However, it's not a very helpful reply!
I would like to know from others which are useful settings in nVidia CP.
I know that FXAA has been mentioned several times. I'm sure there must be other little tips. Doesn't have to be VR related.

I've tried playing around with settings in Nvidia control panel and so far haven't noticed a difference. I just reset mine back to defaults and pressed on.

Set graphics to max performance seems to work.

2D screen user here. NVidia is simple - "thanks" to the deferred shading, most of NV panel settings don't work anywhere, either in 2D or in VR, so it doesn't matter how you set them :D. I keep them on high quality side for other games.

However, energy management on "max performance", as aforementioned above, is always a good thing.

FXAA is a post-processing AA method, so this one actually works, with negligible impact on performance, but also mediocre image quality (shimmering!). In-game MSAA offers superior quality... but at a price of superior drop in fps and/or introduction of microstutters. It's up to you what your "lesser evil" is, though with such a hefty config, you can probably tune in more eyecandy than mere mortals.

V-sync - subjective as well. Keep in mind that to make it work, you have to Alt-Enter often to switch DCS to proper fullscreen mode (though I'd hazard a guess you had to do it on AMD as well?).

When you say FXAA has mediocre image quality with shimmering, what is the point of it then?
I’m sure I’ve read threads here saying that MSAA is incompatible with DS, and that FXAA is superior and should be used in preference.

The point of it is to have any AA without fps loss and increase of microstuttering (so in-game AA options are thrown out of window for me, though they might be OK for you on the basis of simple brutal strength of more powerful gfx card).
With no AA we've got eye-gouging jaggies plus shimmering, with FXAA we've got much less jaggies plus shimmering at almost the same fps. So it's an improvement, a small one, but improvement nevertheless. Crappy AA is still better than no AA.

No idea how it applies to tweaking for VR usage, though, with its specific options and settings. Nvidia users at VR section of the forum will certainly offer better advice.

What would be a good starting point is for Oculus to allow it's Rift to be recognized by Nvidia. Currently it doesn't show as a device in the Nvidia CP.
