It definetely would be significantly less HD thrashing with 2GB. A temporary fix would to lower the texture resolution.

Speaking from a 6800 point of view I have fantastic performance without AA at max settings except for SS.

Enabling even 2xAA halves my minimum framerate and drops the average by 15FPS, my point being if you want on average of 60FPS at max settings you have to leave AA switched off (Sadly).

Still it looks fantastic even with the jaggies, I think you need SLI for MAX settings + AA - In fact I know you do.

I do not run it with AA either. I leave soft shadows off too as they look like arse imho. Even so, i still get slowdowns in certain areas. Makes you wonder why we bother spending all this moolah on all these upgrades and yet we still cant get full settings after all that.

In order to have smooth as glass gameplay, I had to change my settings around to a point where I was getting 55-122-314 min-avg-max fps. Anything more demanding than that resulted in visible chop in certain areas. These settings were 1024x768, everything max, soft shadows off, 2xAA 8xAF. Using 78.03 drivers, btw.
The game is not very well optimized. Some scenes are just ridiculously complex for no reason. Also, what's up with slowdown when a lot of glass windows are in view.

Edit: above fps numbers are with AFR. SFR gives about 30% lower numbers. Certain scenes were smooth with AFR and choppy with SFR, and vise versa. Some scenes had twice the framerate (Fraps) with AFR compared to SFR, but SFR would look and feel smoother.
Weird stuff.

Even with SLI, AA and Soft Shadows really hurt performance. I play at 1600, 2xAA with everything else maxed(no soft shadows), and in the bench I still get 8% under 45fps(92% over). Though there are times where it does dip into the 20's while playing. Need new drivers!!

My SLI rig has met its match with this one.
I can play smoothly at 1600x1200 with 2xaa and 16xaf.
If I turn on soft shadows the game turns into a slideshow.

I know this is kind of a big demand, but can everyone post what settings they aer using (screenshots preferred), along with a benchmark result (screenshot preferred).
I'll post mine in a few.

You can use fraps to take screenshots, and it can be downloaded for free here.
You can use Supload to upload the screenshots
That we can get an idea of what settings to mix and match to get the smoothest performance.
Thanks to everyone that contributes

I went to a different Walmart, found the game on the shelves, went to purchase... and the register said "sell not allowed"

This sucks
