It's great and runs so smooth. Damn i'm in love with my 8800GTX, it can still manage the latest games with everything maxed out :D :D

The PS3 version is great, but I wonder how it'll run on a quad-core, with 8gb of RAM, and a overclock-happy 8800gt. :D

I'm getting some car fliceker in the menu with AFR and AFR2. In game it's fine. I'm not sure if sli is working properly however.1680x1050 ultra settings with 4x msaa fraps. As to why theres 360 controller buttons and not pc: I'm using a 360 controlled on my pc

I'm using the 175.12 drivers with the DIRT profile, no performance problems at all.
I'm waiting your comments on the gameplay :cool:

I installed 175.16 drivers, the sli issue of flickering is still there. Are you sure your sli is enabled guys? Check with nhancer or turn on sli graph loader. I'm still getting better performance in single card mode, and here's a reply from an offical dev:

Ok, with only 2x anti-aliasing, everything on highest it will go except for shadows "only" on "high" I get 60fps in most scenes.

:D

With 8x anti-aliasing, and all settings as high as they'll go, I get 40fps most of the time.

This game runs SO much better than Dirt! (nana2)

Dear EA, this is how you make a driving game! Maybe Codemasters can tutor you when they have a break in their schedule.

Right click on the bottom right icon and then go sli -> loading bar. Try AFR2 and tell us how it goes :)!

SLI is working properly with the 175.12 drivers an the DIRT profile. SLI load bars are nearly full all the time.
You're right, 3 way sli works flawlessy

I will certainly be getting the 360 version but i had to test the game on my rig just to see how it ran and i was impressed with how the 9600GT handled it. Running with all details maxed out (No AA or AF) @ 1920x1200 the frame rate remained above 30fps through out. WoW. The 9600GT is great bang for buck. With the exception of Assasin's Creed, every game i throw at it run at over 30fps with 16xAF. When i made the choice of getting rid of my 8800Ultra for a 9600GT and buying a 360 for gamming and using my PC for movies, i thought that any game i ran on it would have got an Ass*******. On the contrary.

For old times sake, i am currenly going on my second outing of Bioshock (Rescuing rather than harvesting this time) and loving it.

BTW GRID on the PC and 360 is stunning notheless.
