Smooths out the image, gets rid of jagged edges on everything.

It blurs the pizels around the edges of objects, foliage, trees etc to reduce jagged edges. I've found in some engines, you'd be hard pressed to notice the difference, such as in Crysis, but the Source engine definitely needs AA to make it look good.
Don't use AA if you don't notice the jagged edges.

It depends on what you like. I personally like to have AA on to 4x leaving the image clearer but I have an Nvidia 7800 so if I have HDR on, I cant have AA on... Also what worshipme said, it depends on the game and resolution. For crysis, you should be fairly good on jagged edges but i dont know about Call of Duty 4 because i have not played the PC version. For crysis try turning up the settings first (no AA) because AA requires alot of power and can slow down performance incredibly. But like i said before, try things out, keep switching the knobs back and forth on the graphics and stop when you feel it looks best and runs as best as it can.

Yes, and the HD 4850 is $200 as well, except the 4850 performs better...
