Edit: Sorry, I didn't see that you have 2x 6950's in the first computer. The first computer will run BF3 faster.

Thanks very much. Whats the difference between 2xMSAA and 4xMSAA

In most games, 4x MSAA has less aliasing (jagged edges) than 2x, and 2x has less than 0x. BF3 has pretty good post-processing though which is a non-demanding form of anti-aliasing, and so the visual difference between the two is harder to see. Mostly you would see it on fence rails and things like that where there are vertical lines at a slight angle in a row.
