It isn't your card that is holding the game back, it is your dual core CPU. The game is optimized for quads, and to make it worse for dual cores the audio is all done on the CPU so a good chunk of one is taken up with that.

For what it's worth I get the same sort of performance. If nothing else this is the excuse I have been looking for for moving to a quad (grabbing a x4 925 in the next week or so).

I'm sure you're right. That's just something I'm going to have to deal with. I don't have the cash to get a new mobo/CPU/Ram.

Played the campaign over at a friend's house for a while and the graphics are very good, I like the fact that your vision gets obstructed when grenades and/or explosions are happening on your fights, it makes you feel like you're really there. the game is very linear and scripted though, I wish they would let you explore more options.

I didn't like the feel or look of the weapons though, they feel bulky, like to big for the character, equirements are a bit steep and perhaps not optimized as good?

Overall a very good game (so far)... perhaps after a patch it will be better.

My major gripes with the game itself (aside from all the connection/PB bugs) is the audio rendering and the lack of crouch toggle. There is a hot key script that was posted by zerk16 via twitter that fixes the toggle. I would run it through an AV before trying this.

More proof that this game is a CPU hog. I have tried mutiple resolutions from 1024x768 up to 1600x1200 and I only get maybe 10-15 FPS increase tops. I seen different pc specs that would normally give solid FPS numbers that were left to waste by BC2 simply because the CPU used was a dual core. A dude had a dual core Intel, a 4870, and 8 GB of ram and was achieving 30 FPS average. So definately a quad core is a must for this puppy if you plan on achieving FPS above 70. Not sure why they decided to take out the sound card in favor of software audio rendering but they did and now to really get the most out of the game you have to get a quad core.

Despite the server problems over the weekend I think this says it all about how well this game has been accepted so far,

Hey, this thing could a major hog but, at the very least, you can play it... slow as it is, go tell the folks over Ubisoft's newest DRM game (AC2) how they feel about the game and UBI after the servers were down for more than 10 hrs yesterday or over the weekend

Last night I was watching TV when all of a sudden I see a commercial about a shooter game and it looks just Awesome, I mean... Mouth Watering. It endep up being this game and I got kind off upset and down at the same time because I knew that the commercial was not remotely close as to what the game was... marketing at its best! Gotta love it!
