All I did was turn off light bloom, ground scenery shadows, and moved the water slider back to Low 2.x. With just those changes the frame rate double and almost tripled in some places. Flying around Vancouver I was seeing 12-20fps, and in the shots posted I was getting 19 and 20fps.

I have also done the cfg tweaks from the guide below, with the exception of the autogen density tweak in the cfg. I did not do either of the autogen tweaks in this guide as it reduces the variety of trees and buildings.

For my normal settings I mostly use the settings from this guide, and I get 18-27fps most of the time.

This is what my scenery page looks like with my normal gameplay settings with a screenshot below showing what thise settings look like.

Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem Quad @ 4.0GHz
EVGA GTX 660 SLI @ 1046MHz
OCZ Platinum CL7 6GB
EVGA Intel X58
