For comparison I run it at Very High, in DX11, AAx2, AFx16, High Res Texture Pack, and it runs smoothly for the most part. If you do get any issues its the game itself not your hardware, as there are known issues with the game currently running in DX11 over on the Bioware forums that Bioware are trying to fix.

Make sure your drivers are fully updated and that you download Patch 1.2 from Bioware (if you buy through Steam you won't need to).

Ahh. Thanks. The reason I asked is because I'm trying to run it at maxed settings, 1920x1080, DX11, max AA and AF and I'm getting 7 FPS.

Yeah when I run it max it's pretty much the same for me.

If you want to keep it on DX11 drop down to High and AAx4. The game is known to run remarkably better on High in DX11.

Or run it on DX9 with the High Res Texture Pack and AAx8. It will only go upto Medium but will still look good with the High Res Texture Pack enabled. You just miss out on the extra shadow details etc. You can enable AF via your GPU software. It runs alot smoother like this for me.

This is going by ingame settings by the way. I have everything application controlled by my GPU software (so there's no conflicts, I personally still run it in DX11).

I think there was also specific issues with Nvidia GPUs aswell (though I don't own one so can't be 100% sure about this).

Here's the patch notes from Steam.
Quote:
Dragon Age 2 Updated
Product Update - Valve 10:07
Dragon Age II - 1.02

AMD and NVIDIA have recently released new graphics-card drivers. Using old drivers may cause Dragon Age II to crash, run poorly, or display graphics incorrectly. Please visit your hardware vendor's website for further information on obtaining new drivers:
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx?lang=en-us
http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/Catalyst114earlypreview.aspx

NOTE: Some plot fixes are retroactive, but not all. Players with plot-breaking bugs may need to revert to an earlier save, particularly a save prior to visiting the affected area during the current year in the game.

- Potions, poisons, grenades, and runes can now still be ordered from the Hawke estate after the main campaign is complete.
- Various minor gameplay issues no longer occur.

QUESTS (SPOILER WARNING)
- "Who Needs Rescuing" can now be completed.
- "Duty" will now appear on the Chanter's Board even if the player accepted all of the board's quests before installing the Exiled Prince premium content.
- The journal for "Duty" will now update if the player left the Docks (Night) area immediately after killing the Flint Company mercenaries.
- In "Finders Keepers," the door to Woodrow's Warehouse will now open if the player steals the location to the warehouse from the harbormaster's office.
- In "Finders Keepers," if the player leaves Woodrow's Warehouse before finding the crate, it is now possible to return to the warehouse to complete the quest.
- In "Herbalist's Tasks," the varterral's heart is now available even if the player killed the varterral before receiving the quest.
- Merrill no longer refers to the aftermath of "A New Path" before the plot has been completed.
- Varric is no longer confused about which character Hawke has been romancing.
- Various minor story-scripting issues no longer occur.

PC/SPECIFIC FUNCTIONALITY
- Varric's Embellishment talent no longer incorrectly refers to movement speed.
- It is now easier to select party members by clicking on their portraits when the level-up arrow is displayed.
- The game now functions correctly if the Windows desktop is set to 150% size.
- The video options menu now allows a wider full-screen gamma range.

Thanks a lot guys.
I set it on high with AA off and it runs perfectly on DX11.

Didn't try the drivers yet though.
