Jagged Shadows in 3D View

I have loaded a conceptual mass family into the project and am getting jagged shadows in the default 3d view with shadows and the printed PDF (attached), regardless of the quaility settings reflects this as well.  Is there a way to adjust the precision of the shadow aliasing in the views.  I know how to do it for a rendering.  I am running an Nvidia Quatro FX 2800  and have the latest reccomended driver updates.  I have tried adjusting the Aliasing manually from the card but am having no luck.  Thanks in advance for any advice.

Try adjusting the Graphics settings in Revit as well.

Yes, I have the Graphic setting checked.  Are the jagged edges just something I have to live with....why is Revit so restrictive in its graphic sliders or options, just checked or not checked.
