the alpha is pretty satisfying. the feel is definitely different from Bad Company 2. gonna have to play more/different maps to see if worth it to be buying this one.

At 1080p the game runs like butter even without my second 580 working. Never goes below 60 fps. Once they get the SLI profile working it's going to not only look better than BF2, but will run better as well.

This has to be the worst lobby system ever. I REALLY hope this is just for the alpha... can't even get into a freaking game.

Soon as it loads up it's running at 32fps and barely goes above that.

Completely disable SLI in the NVCP, goes upto 45-55ish.

Using the new drivers.

Yeah, I'll wait for the beta. I do enough software testing at work - I don't need to be a guinea pig at home, too.
