With No AA I rarely see less than 60fps, Typical of the unreal engine to take such a hit with AA applied.
Not running FRAPs or anything, but I'm generally in the 30s to low 40s, very smooth. In very heavy duty parts (like some outdoor sections of the Citadel) I'm dipping into the 20s. It's never a slide show or anything and frames are consistent so it's a pretty fluid experience.

For me I see no real difference in FPS with AA on or off, a result of my weak CPU probably. Gotta love the power the 8800GT can dish out even when held back!

Well no offense but if your not running fraps then how do you really know what your FPS is? Im not doubting that it runs smooth on your system or anything I am just curious as to what your FPS would be.

Try running fraps when you get a chance.

it's possible to see your FPS in-game without using fraps, there's a hotkey command. control+shift+f or something

Oh ok, well he didnt say that he was using anything so I figured he was just guessing. Sometimes looks can be deceiving.

I posted about it earlier today. Edit the ini files to get the console working then type "stat fps"

I did a 10 minute benchmark in Fraps while riding around on Knossos. Here's the report

Min: 0
Max: 61
Avg: 28.653

Vsync was disabled obviously. With MSAA turned on though, it makes the framerates only about 30 on average. BTW, the 0 is because the map had to load certain parts during this benchmark.

Yea I was using the edit that was posted earlier to just check out frames here and there. I just ran FRAPs to take screenshots but I did not check the box that keeps the FPS overlay on them so they're kind of useless... I did however play around a bit with FRAPS running and in heavy combat fps would go from high teens to mid twenties, driving around a planet it was 30-45 fps, running through the Normandy was at 20-30, running around the Citadel it was about the high teens pretty much all the time.

I'll post a couple screens for the heck of it. I'm using SuperSample 2xAA and I have textures on High, not Highest. In the shot of combat at was at 19 FPS at that moment, in the shoot of the Normandy I was at 23 FPS.

Yeah it seems for sure that your CPU is holding you back a bit. I am running the same settings but with the Textures on Ultra High and my FPS is quite a bit higher in those same places.

Thanks for checking it out for me though as I was curious about your CPU.
