is that socket am2? I'm running and x2 4200 at 2.6Ghz and it runs pretty shoddy. I think you need a quad to make it enjoyable.

yeah thats what i'm getting, i was going to spend on an hd 4870 and x2 6000 with a nice heat sink for the 4870 but now i think im just going to go for the quad and new mobo, give my system a new base.

I dropped the texture quality from high to medium and I got 10 more FPS. Not bad and it really doesn't look that different to me. The only thing now is for real AA.

There is also a motion blur mod that cleans up the motion blur and can help the game appear smoother (even though it's not). I'll see if I can dig it up if you don't mind motion blur, I know some can't stand it.

Motion blur is the devils creation. I've only seen source games with good motion blur.

I found a small bug last night. I was playing darts with Packie and when it was my turn, everything just stopped. The game didn't freeze, but all I could do is exit the game and run it again. Weird . .

Definitely one of the best games I have played recently. I'll have to download and install it again and play online some more. Nekro kicked my ass last time, haha.
