Really? Your system is not too different from mine and I'm able to run Vista DX10 all very high with no texture streaming and level precache on at 1360x768 and I rarely dip below 20fps and find the game very playable with fps > 18. Infact, the later levels seemed to run very nice and I have not noticed the huge drop in fps that a lot of people are reporting. A few times I have noticed fps around 15 but when I saved and restarted they came up to 25-30 in the same spot. For the most part the, during gameplay, the game stays above 24fps.
