It comes out tommorrow in stores, so I might pick it up tommorrow to play with you guys.

I just have a couple of quick questions. First, is there still room for me in the NVNews group?

The other question I have is anyone running the game in Vista on a 8800GTX at 1920 x 1200? What kind of performance do you get? I played the beta, and it seemed to be okay, but I think I'm going to keep the eye candy down so that it is smooth.

If that is all cool, then I might pick up a DFP to really have some fun.

Yes, there are still 10 open slots in the NvNews club and they wont be filled any time soon. slaWter plays TDU in Vista with one 8800GTX and 2560x1600 and it seems to run well, at least he kicks my ass on a regular basis. Im sure he can tell you more about the performance but I think you will be fine and should be able to run almost all settings maxed out with 2AA, similar like OWA does, but he runs TDU in XP right now.

Yea, I thought OWA was running almost identical to what I am in XP, but I'm not sure what monitor he's using. I'll probably get raped by everyone, but I still want to have fun and learn from you guys. I'm not new to racing, but I'm really rusty and need some help running better lines.

Okay kewl

One more thing, I just want to double check that you can just joy ride around without having to race all the time right? That is the other thing I'd love to do in the game is just get to ride around in a bunch of sweet cars and get to drive throughout the map. There would be nothing better than getting a vette or something and slamming on the gas and roasting the wheels.

Yea its like a oblivion with cars,you can go anywhere you want at any time,no need for races of any kind tbh ,you can just drive the first car u get around the island if you wanted to Its a sweet setup and you can make the game progress in any tempo you desire.

Heh, against my better judgement, I just bought a DFP wheel from Target for $100 shipped. There was no way I could afford the G25, so this is the next best thing.
