    Yea, true but I've heard (even before I bought it) that this game is not as good as UT99 and 2k4. That's why I didn't want to spend too much money on it ^^

    You bought it for 9,85€ or something, it is the price of it for PC now, but I am glad I bought it for 50€, you know why, because then the producers receive more money to invest in the next UT

    Still even now i enjoy ut2k4 more than ut3 but i would rly like to resolve this issue as i use ut3 to play sometimes aswell.
    I was also one of thoose who bought UT3 by 50€

    I changed my Windows 7 settings to Performance and Ut3 works much better... if I wanted all the visuals..i just enable it..
    i.e Computer->Properties->Advanced Settings->Performance->Adjust for best performance

    I haven't noticed any change in the performance i get in 3ds max with the high performance plan, it's not the same as xp.

    Forgot to ask you, which hardware you got?(CPU, GPU,ram etc)
    I am using an E6850 conroe CPU, 9800 GT with 1 GIG ram PCIexpress. win 7 X64 with 8 GIGS RAM. I also use the BFG ageia physx pci card with UT3.

    Rather stick to just High Performance

    You have to hit the plus sign to expand the menu.

    However, I wouldn't switch it to passive until someone confirms that it won't make your computer melt.

    In Procesor Power management set "Minimum processor state to 100%,(was on 25%) "system cooling policy" to "passive" and "Maximum processor state" to 100%(probably already set)
    I don't see this option under there. I only see 'System Cooling Policy'.

    Designer101 kind of has a point, I changed those settings the day I installed windows 7 and than forget about them. Never had performance issues with UT3.

    But other people might skip it and if the PC come pre-installed with windows7 the techie might of changed it to power saving etc.

    Would explain to some degree the performance issues people is having.

    The truth is if you Only play UT3 the best set up is XP 32bit with 2gb memory.

    I understand the dilemma, it's a real problem with tech moving on and >2gb ram rigs mean running 64 bit OSes is becoming the norm ,plus DX11 games are obv. restricted to the newer OSes. I've tested both 32bit Xp and 64 bit OSes and the difference -not in peak but lowest and average framerates on Deck was substantial : around 60fps difference in places on that map.

    Then there are the (better security at a price) network stack issues in the newer OSes. Of course Epic could probably patch away most of the issues, but it looks unlikely -the UDK is getting 64bit treatment tho for obvious reasons, so who knows.

    The power management tweaks above might help, but the result is a processor that doesn't down clock when under utilised or idling like just viewing these web pages and there is the resultant heat/power concern. Unless there is a problem these power saving tools are pretty responsive to apps anyway in my experience.
