Honestly, this game looks great and has lots of eye candy (looks better than HL2 in my opinion) so it's reasonable that your 9800pro won't be able to get 60fps max settings @1280x1024 w/8xAF. This is a very shader heavy game, but I would think the biggest reason you're seeing lower fps than you're used to you is the games heavy indulgence in bloom effects and soft shadows.. Maybe turning off one or the other of those two settings would help?
