This in basically some kind of antialiasing. When using Super Sampling you can basically achieve a better quality, than with every other antialiasing mode, however you need really a lot of performance.
Super Sampling is the oldes and "simplest" way of antialiasing, every other kind of antialiasing is just a way to get similar results with lower performance requirements.
If you are already using FXAA, you probably won't see too much of a difference by adding super sampling.
If you turn off FXAA, you will see the difference, but i'd rather have FXAA on and super sampling off, for performance reasons.

so i have a new pc and i can activate all setting and still have 60+ fps but i can't really notice the differnece betwen normal render and super sampling... the only thing i notice is the huge fps difference i get
You must have some serious hardware, supersampling should hit your performance quite hard. Make sure you run around a bit, swing the camera around, go to some other places, enter combat etc. You might find your framerate quite a bit more "volatile" with Supersampling enabled, even if you can stay at 60 in some cases.
Edit: Also check both without Vsync on!
