When I first ran the game it was soooooo slow. I have a 9500GS, which is fine for games likes l4d2, modern warefare 2, burnout paradise etc... but this game was jerky even on 800x640!

My new G-card should arrive today, but just incase I deleted local content, redownloaded... and the game is 10x faster!

The first time I loaded up the game, the speach was lagging out, the game was jerking around like michael j foxx, and I was really put off the game.

Now the graphics are really nice, the glow from the sun... the lights on the car... the horizon... reflections off the car itself. Really nice stuff.

So yeah, if you had really lame performance, try redownloading the game - worked for me! Maybe it was cos the first time round I didnīt choose the option to defrag too...

I will have to try this tonight.

What new card are you getting? This game runs better on my 9600 GT 512mb than it does on my brand new GTX 460 1gb.

The new one is an Asus GeForce GT 240 1GB GDDR5 WW, which I can overclock to get a semi-decent effort. I donīt need a high-end card as I rarely have time to game due to work.

Waiting for the delivery guy inbetween getting black flagged and penalties atm :D

I have HDMI output to my TV, so canīt wait to sit on the couch with 360 controller in hand and start playing online :)

edit: yeah yours pees on my g-card from a great height

my card might pee on yours from a great height, but its not doing me any good because my cpu is apparently holding it back.

There is a lot of bad information being circulated regarding "CPU bottlenecking". Obviously it does depend on your setup, but a 2Ghz Core2Duo is ample for running a GTX 400 series card. This can be easily seen by either under or overclocking your CPU and comparing your results - you definitely do not need an i7 to run a 400 series card, as some people around teh internets seem to be claiming/advising :)

In addition, the difference between 2 and 4 cores for most games is not as high as some people are claiming. Some games are optimised for 4 cores, but that still doesn't mean each core is busy 100% of the time. Which in turn means, the load could probably be easily shared by just 2 cores, without detrimental effect on performance :)

LOL I have a Pentium D 820. Thats a dual core 2.8ghz

I would have a kicka$$ machine right now but it arrived DOA, so I shipped it back for a refund so I can build my own.

Here is a picture of the 47lb paper weight next to my current dual core dell. The thing never even powered on. :mad:

Ah :) hehe... the devil of dual cores. In that case, you're quite right about the CPU bottleneck - but using "mid" settings should still give you a nice balance between visuals and performance, I think.
