The AA quality would not be different, AA is the way the computer shades colours to give the impression of a complete drawing, as we know computers don't know curves. AA is used to soften this, so effectively no there shouldn't be any difference between the two in AA circumstances but because of the added pixels the image will appear softer.

So no... But yes with added pixels. I would say go the extra res because AA will only put more stress on your GPU :)

Not really. Either 1920 x 1080 or 1920 x 1200 looks the best resolution to choose without AA activated.
