After a little checking on NewEgg I found out that what I'm running is more powerful than a HD7970 or 680.
I'm getting an average of 45-50fps in dense forest and a little higher near the coast. Am I stupid to expect 60fps, or is it something else?
Sorry for posting this in two threads but I found this thread afterwards and it seemed more appropiate here.

I run through a HDTV so I get bad tearing without vsync. Everything maxed with x2 msaa. Just come from years of consoles and this games graphics are stunning.
In game vsync is working for you? Well if it is working don't change anything but I had terrible framerate drops due to a broken in game vsync. Setting in game vsync OFF and adaptive vsync in nvidia control panel + triple buffering gives me a steady 60 fps @ ultra / postfx disable / 2x msaa. Took me forever to get this game stabilized

trying to figure this out saw some stuff that said it works for all intel cores i3-i5-i7 Then I saw something that says it only works for ones with hyperthreading....
Whats more confusing is I opened windows resource monitor like the website http://www.coderbag.com/Programming-C/Disable-CPU-Core-Parking-Utility
says and it showed no parked cores. but then when i used the utility they made to unpark cores. It said they were all parked... well I 'unparked' them and it made no difference in my frequencies changing (cstates enabled) So I am wondering if you need to have cstates disabled? (constant frequency) for this to matter? Also... when I use the app to 'park' the cores the resource monitor shows no parked cores still.Edited by HardwareDecoder - 12/10/12 at 2:18am
