Keep reading the threads about tweaking.
I started out with 2.3 fps nad after coming to this board, i now get 16 fps with most things almost maxed out except lightbloom and shadows checkoffs.
I got to get an amd phenom ii 955 cpu and redo the system to vista 64 bit.
Then i should really see some major improvemnts.
