Can't pass on this one either. I need to take like 2 weeks off work to get through all these games.

I purchased a hard copy and am thoroughly enjoying it. DX10 settings are allowing me to play at decent frame rates as DX11 with everything cranked was rather punishing on my system. Extremely immersive, excellent graphics. I like the story as well!Running MSI afterburner to monitor GPU performance while playing.
So your playing it in DX10.....with a 5870 Vapour DX11 Card???........huh......try turning off DOF option......and go AAA with 4X AA.....

Yeah I was playing DX 10 due to green/gray screens and crashes during gaming . More so in BFBC2. I installed 10.5 drivers and never switched back to DX11 for this game. Just tried DX 11 and seems to be playing well. Last card was a 8800GTS so I'm still not familiar with ATI drivers and card settings. I just tried your recommended settings! Thanks! At 1920x1080. Some GPU stats using MSI afterburner. Approx 34FPS, 44% fan speed. GPU is 66C. Must have been the driver cleaning and install that fixed things as last night I had no crashes. Thanks for your recommendations!

Oh and I forgot one other thing ..... Sapphire tech recommended a GPU BIOS flash and the card has performed flawlessly now!
