ya, but you have a quad core cpu, and UE3 really benefits from it. where as my cpu is very lacking when it comes to UE3. i struggle to play UT3 and MOH Airborne @ 1600x1200, where as GPU limited games i have NO problems.

You cant compare LP demo vs Retail and patched, which add DX10 fur effect (nicely viewable on spider boss) and also its faster, not to mention with quadcore, which also boost fps (it needs to be enabled ingame of course)

There are vastly better DX10 shadows in the patched retail. Not sure about HDR though.

Lost Planet is a much better game, IMO. Graphics are better and so is the gameplay. The boss battles are some of the best I've seen.
