For anyone who's still interested I noticed the new patch and nvidia drivers really sped up DX11 Very High, it's totally playable at max settings now. Though I have no interest in replaying the game.

Got the hi res texture pack, everything set to very high with x4AA and getting 100-120fps. Runs good for me, glad I waited for them to patch it.

The performance is great for me, atleast until it crashes and then again and again with looping sound and stops responding. Seems that 64 bit win 7 is having huge issues with the game and no fix for it was included in the patches. Have yet to try the DX9 version but that wasn't why i bought a DX11 card.

There's like 4 million different fixes/workarounds but they mostly involve downgrading settings. I'll hope for further fixes or not play it at all.

hmm.. I never had any problems running it on my win7 x64 setup... aside from some of the DX11 visuals absolutely tanking the FPS and SLI not working but I have long since uninstalled it.

That sucks, yeah like FastRedPonyCar I haven't had any crashing issues but to be honest this is not a game that it's worth spending hours trying to get working. The more I think about DA2 the less I like it. Even though I really enjoyed playing through it the first time, I really don't have any desire to finish it again. I guess it's just the Dragon Age series, I never replayed the first game either (though to be fair it was about a 50 hour game).

usually when it crashes, there is something wrong with your PC. Check the obvious stuff like directx, .net, visual c+ redist (uninstall all 2005, 2008 versions.. just keep the 2010)

reinstall drivers, maybe it will help

Sure, it will still sell enough, but I don't think they were aiming so low with a sequel.
good, i hope it fails miserably and they go back to the classic RPG feel.

Rolled back to 266.58, performance is more than halved but it doesn't crash.

I heard it came out, saw it was yanked from Steam like Crysis 2. I have a few games to play before I revisit but I'm glad it's good.

Right now playing Deus Ex. Man I always forget how good this game is.
