    gg with the "CPU-bound" excuse
    If you have a high end video card, the "cpu-bound" effect would be improved by overclocking on the low end frame rates, not average or upper FPS.

      nvidia 8600 = low end.... poor
      Nvidia 8800
      or
      ATI HD3850/3870 = highend, excellent...

      this game really need a machine to have 2gb of ram and a 8800 OR HD29xx/HD38xx video card to work at high quality/high resolutions.

Maybe we'll get lucky and there are some hidden code optimizations in the patch coming out, although they haven't been listed in the release notes so far.
        Sorry, but your crappy 2ghz pentium 4 just doesn't cut it, no amount of "code optimization" will change this fact.

          I found that lowering your USB polling rate or "refresh rate" of your mouse helps with FPS and smoother turning.

            It's the other way around actually.

              Loading times, yes. calculations-no.

              It would make it less stuttery, depending on the game, but more RAM wouldn't improve general FPS.

                It would actually, RAM handles resources of the game, if it's not sufficient it has to swap out stuff using the HDD while ingame, that reduces FPS greatly and makes the game a lot less fluid.

                  Later I realized this doesn't make sense. Ignore this. LOL

                    But there is a ceiling on this where additional memory makes no difference because the CPU is limited by its own performance speed doing calculations and it has everything it needs in RAM. The Gamespot data indicates this ceiling is around 1GB for XP and just above it somewhere for Vista.

                      True, 2GB is the new standard it seems with vista and some background stuff.

                            So basically then it is going to run like poo on my system no matter what? Can not get above 20 FPS @ 800x600 which I do not under stand as I can play BioShock with everything maxed & stay over 60FPS. You think maybe Unreal does not agree with the ATI drivers?

                              Tried the latest ATI drivers? And sometimes a lower res doesn't increase FPS oddly enough.

                                WOW - i got no lag and run in 1920x1200

                                My Rig is :

                                AMD Opteron 185 (2.6 Ghz)
                                4 GB Dual Channel RAM
                                Geforce 8800GTX 768MB
                                Windows Vista 64-bit

                                Don't get me wrong. This ain't exactly the newest hardware around - still it runs smooth.

                                Is this caused by the GTX card perhaps ?
