I had one crash, but I was running a bunch of things in the background at the same time
graphics were fairly smooth-considering I forgot to pause my folding- and nice looking on a GTX 260

I've got the well publicized win7/vista x64 lag and slowdown and screen freezing every few seconds. Barely playable.

The only slow downs I get are from VATS. Rarely see a drop otherwise and I am playing @ 2560x1440 everything maxed.

I found a supposed fix for the 64 bit stuttering. Gonna try it when I get home.

Fix found for Windows 7 and Windows Vista - Bethesda Softworks Forums

I've lost like 4 hours worth of city building in my Cities XL2011 city in the past 2 days. My save files keep messing up.

Seems to make a difference for me.....

It reset my video options but I set it back to ultra and now doesn't pause every 3 seconds like it did.
