Hang in there guys, just a little while longer!

Beautiful textures! I can see that bump mapping in every screenshot. Just hope my PC will be able to run it decently.

Picked up my copy today!

OpenAL works beautifully (unlike SHoC at launch), sounds great!

Performance.. well DX10 at 1920x1200, enabling any AA kills performance.

Without AA, with 'High' setting, fps goes from 25-60.

I think Tri-SLI or better drivers/patch are needed to get this game running good. It's not like Crysis either where 30fps feels okay, 30fps or lower in STALKER doesn't feel too good.

And that's with SLI GTX 280, this game is a true resource hog. I hope Steam releases it tomorrow, at least for Europe, money is burning in my pocket
