As is mine.

This game was released without much driver optimization. No SLI support at release? Come on.
Still a killer game though. Mouse+keyboard > 360 Controller.

According to the manual you ALWAYS need the CD in the drive for it to work. This cuts down on piracy.
Did you disable the clip editor so you can run it at higher settings?

The people that are having problem with the texture settings that would not change to high or whatever you first need to lower the view distance do around 32 which is default I believe then. Now you can switch texture quality and then adjust the view distance.

Tag = NGM Apoc

Not got the best performance in the world here, i'm guessing it's the 512mb of vRAM I've got.

I'm hoping the update and some new drivers with SLI will help out but what else can I do to increase performance? I'm not sure I can push my quad much further, but if I could would it help out all that much?

[EDIT] The game also seems to be running in 32-bit mode too, is that normal or what? Since it says it's enhanced for 64-bit and multi-core on the back.

Ok, so Im finaly able to run the game without a crash being loged into the social club!! and using the "-norestrictions -nomemrestrict" I have set it completely maxed out, I get about 70-80 FPS inside and average 30-55 FPS outside, no crashes anymore either!

Now all I want is SLI and AA

Well, ****, since SLI isn't working, my rig to-be won't be too much behind yours (dan0964). Think I'd be able to max out GTA 4 (Q6600 @ ~3.2Ghz, 4GB Patriot DDR2-1066, OCed 4870 ... ) at 1680x1050?
