The mortar would be horribly OP on Op. Metro. Just mortar the Mcom as defender or attacker to win: mortars stop it from being armed - mortars stop it from being disarmed.

Ok i decided to get over with it and test my framerates in the game. I have shadows on LOW and textures on Medium and everything else on HIGH and SSAO on instead of HBAO settings and the frame rates i am getting are from 50 to 60 and 70. Sometimes 80 in a area. But i do see from 42 to 50 outside metro but it seems to be nicer when i'm in the subway.

So i decided to turn on HBAO on and it turns out i lost like 2 to 3 or 4 fps cuz of more impact on performance. Considering this is a beta and it ain't so bad for my video card but i do know testing it on ULTRA wouldn't mean nothing until the final version.

It's not a bad performance considering the fact ssao performs better than HBAO on eventhough i use HIGH settings and HBAO on dx11 settings in Battlefield 2 Bad Co. and i get better framerates which is odd.

But anyhow this got me thinking, if i wanna get more performance i think i'm gonna order a GTX 570 or GTX 580 around the month.. Dunno yet. I have thought of SLi but meh.

I would recommend you just get a 2nd GTX460 for SLI. It's cheaper and you will get equal or better performance than if you upgrade to a single 570 or 580.

And at 1680x1050 you won't be running into VRAM bottlenecks with your 460, so the extra VRAM from a 570 or 580 wouldn't help you much.

Its not available in the beta, only hacked servers. I thought i let you know so you don't waste your time.

You sure? A lot of people are saying otherwise...

Can anyone confirm?

What if i wanted a gtx 570 or 580 then? Would that mean i need to get a bigger monitor or more ram? That just was a bit confusing here. It's kinda pointless to go SLi when i can get a better card that has better shaders and more features on it compared to what i have now. I know my card is awesome but you know that they stopped making 768mb Superclocked versions. Hardly can find any for sale besides Amazon.com perhaps.

So please input why would i be concerned about vram when i have 8 gigs? Is this a monitor thing?

Why do people always keep bringing up such false info? It's in the beta. It's not only on modded servers. It's unlockable.

Your main system RAM is separate from your VRAM. If you want to game at higher resolutions and/or turn on Antialiasing, you're going to want more VRAM. The VRAM acts as a buffer to store the textures in the game you're playing. If you max out the VRAM, you will have to wait for it to free up space and load the new textures. That means lag.

But I didn't realize you had the 768MB version of the 460. If that's the case, I wouldn't SLI that since at higher resolutions you'll likely run into a bottleneck. A 570 or 580 would be a better upgrade. But in terms of pure throughput, two 460's will beat a single 570 or 580.

Oh, and yes, you should consider a new monitor. A 570/580 is overkill for 1680x1050 for probably every game out there.

Well that really does HELP a lot there. Thanks for clearing that up. I learned a great deal more about Ram now. I never realized i could be bottlenecking due to my monitor resolution. I always though it was more about the processor or ram when it comes to updating your video cards. Rep for your huge input. I learned a LOT.

So it looks like i may consider buying a new monitor first then perhaps GTX 570 or GTX 580. I may as well upgrade the psu if i want to give a little more headroom eventhough mines ok.
