Windows 7: Nfs shift

I have 7600 x64 and running Shift perfectly. All updates installed, Aero is on, Sidebar gadgets enabled. What I really can't stand is that at 16x Anti-aliasing the FPS really goes down to like 20-12 frames per second. That sucks. Also the loading time is horrible... I had to shave twice 'till the game got loaded [lol]. I don't understand how can I be running Prototype with all settings MAX from 40 to 60 FPS [ingame], and how some lousy NFS is gonna take down my GPU with it's "awesomeness".... My video-card struggles to keep up with this thing and I don't play it anymore... It's overall not that cool. Try Burnout Paradise - waaaaay cooler if you ask me!

burnoute paradise is not so great.. Well i is cool and interesting but not for a long run... Simply it gets boring after some hours of playing...

Anyway nfs shift is good but dont work good... And probably you have to have some sort of luck to get it work properly.

Ah, don't be mad, it's just a game! Try all settings on low and disable your anti-aliasing. Maybe it should run smoother then. If you think it wastes the point try medium or low-medium combinations. You'll hit the bullseye some way...
Edit: Your GPU is just like mine... Is the processor the problem here?

I get bored of racing/driving games real fast. Burnout goes up to your elite license and then you get bored. It's perfect in the party mode though, you NEVER get bored with a friend on the other controller!
I like kill/shoot/free-explore games. GTA:SA fits my category perfectly with this, but on my new PC it seems to run reeeeal fast! Lag I tell you! Even with the frame limiter on I have this. Also the annoying mouse bug issue. You may have heard this.
For now, I stick with Prototype, it's an OK game, real addicting in the beginning, and makes an impression of a lot of swearing with the first few missions, It's swear 100%! I'd give some... examples, but I want to keep my head away from the banhammer. Later on you get used to the swearing and the cut-scenes are slightly less. You can't really get bored of it that fast, there are always new thing you can find. Somehow landmarks and hints are more addicting to me than super-jumps and billboard smashes!
I got offtopic and I think I'll go do some more math for school. Better nerd than turd!

lol I played Prototype, not all the way but some of the beginning. I think i might reinstall it. I know i can't play it on max settings. Wow, talk about the carnage in that game! I'd be lucky to get decent frame rates on medium lol
I'm a FPS/RTS gamer more anything else. But i do keep a varying assortment of games so i can never get bored, but somehow i do hahaha
Lately, i can't seem to let go of Tropico 3 and COD4!

Well i have to say that I went against my better judgement and bought NFS - Shift and what a complete waste of time and money. If it isnt looping at the video shots ie ingaming it gets as far as starting first race to first corner then completely crashes. Its about time people at Electronic Arts get off their backsides and test thier games properly. Judgeing by what EA say the specks are for this game you still have to turn all your graphics down to me that is just bad programming. To say that the game is only a couple of weeks old if that there is already a patch that doesnt work out for it.

Shift-E, Shift-L not working sticky keys off
My old keyboard was refusing to re-initialize after the peripheral reset during win 7 boot. It's about a decade old, so I just assumed it was dead. I replaced it with my wireless keyboard I use for working on computers, Ms laser 8000. My keyboard now initializes fine, but shift L and Shift E are...

NFS Shift or Shift 2 or something else?
I am looking for racing game, more of a SIM for PC. Graphics need to be good. Confused between Shift 1 and 2. Or is there some other which I should look into other than these 2? BTW, will not be using Wheel but gamepad or less likely keyboard.

Shift 2
My advice....Don't bother! Managed to get it a day early , what a let down. To me the graphics seem even inferior to the original Shift. Car handling not impressive. No wow factor what so ever.

NFS Shift Problems
I was playing NFS: Shift and then suddenly, without doing anything (this happens all the time with it on my PC), it'll freeze at the first red light. I installed XP 64 on another HDD, and that didn't have a problem, and it was much faster too. Any ideas?
