I can definitely tell when I drop from 60 to 30 fps...

I've found I can max everything with my sig rig in 1920x1200 using 8xAA. I'm using Vsync, so it looks better if I can maintain 60FPS all the time.

So I think I've found the one setting that caused it to drop under 60FPS at often times, and that is shadow quality. I dropped it from ultra to high. That seemed to remedy the drops down to 40FPS +..

When using Vsync there is a huge difference when dropping below 60FPS. I experience jerkiness and lagging. Keeping Vsync all the time simply feels perfect for me.

I'm sure that 2600k @ 4.8 helps quite a bit but nevertheless this is good news for me being that I also have a gtx570

Still, like I said, the game looks pretty. I've been waiting for this game for years, and I'm as hyped as ever. I was supposed to get my copy today, along with the sweet cloth map pre order bonus (I hope) , but it would appear it's slightly delayed... Darn post office. May consider "acquiring" it for the weekend.

Human eyes are more sensitive than most think. Even at very elevated framerates your eyes can tell the difference. On my 120Hz monitor, I can clearly tell when I drop below 100FPS from 120 if I just circle the camera around a little.

From 60 to 30 it's extremely noticeable. Night and day.

1) How does the game play on PC using the xbox controller (I know, Blasphemy ... but I prefer my controller unless a game requires precise aiming ... which I sense this one doesn't)
2) Is Steam Cloud supported?

1) Yes. It feels like it was designed for it, i've found it much more enjoyable to play with an xbox controller. Works straight away, just plug it in.

2) No. There's no steam cloud for save games or settings.

Actually, I'm running my 2600K at 4.4GHz now.

It's not in the game, it's in windows' control panel. Select output device, then right click on speakers. It's in the properties.

6# Skyrim – No Sound Fix
If you can’t hear any sound, update your audio drivers and restart your PC. If it doesn’t resolve after that, try running the game in Stereo sound settings. You can set this sound setting in your sound control panel.

If you still can’t resolve it, set the audio quality to 41K – you can do that by going into Playback Devices > Speakers (Or Any Sound Device) > Properties > Advanced and choose Studio Quality 41K 16bit.
