The "quality" setting lets you select from various MSAA modes that are specific to the hardware. They don't necessarily correspond to "higher quality". The most common example would probably be [url="http://developer.download.nvidia.com/SDK/10.5/direct3d/Source/CSAATutorial/doc/CSAATutorial.pdf"]Nvidia's CSAA modes[/url], which are selected via the quality setting. D3D10.1 also added standard MSAA sample patterns, which you access by specifying D3D10_STANDARD_MULTISAMPLE_PATTERN or D3D10_CENTER_MULTISAMPLE_PATTERN as the quality level.

...So they're not actually quality, they're patterns.

Wonderful.

Thanks. :)
