TXAA is supported on GeForce GTX 600-series Kepler-based GPUs.

Modded nvdm.inf & nvcv.inf files included with this post for M18x-R1 owners using a Clevo GTX 680M in their systems. If the .inf's don't work for you, then your device id may be different than the one I used. In this case mine is 048F so go to your control panel-->display device-->hardware id and look for the corresponding hardware id for your Clevo GTX 680M and replace 048F with yours in the nvdm.inf and nvcv.inf file.
