I just picked it up and I'm rather dissappointed. Am I missing something here? NFS: Most Wanted played fine with pretty well everything on high at 1680x1050. I can barely play NFSC on 1280x1024 with stuff on medium and no AA. My only clue was that the AI from 8 cars instead of 4 create a much greater load on the CPU, and that's what's bogging me down. Although, even when I'm driving around in free mode it's choppy. Most Wanted ran just fine, so I assumed Carbon would as well. Anyone else having similar problems?
