    @kurgan what resolution and what are the clocks on your 9800gt? Mines overclocked a bit as well as pretty low res.

    1920x1080, and yeah my cards a single slot, basically 100 core and mem under yours. With how low the frames dip, I can't see an OC giving me the fps I want during really bloody fights. I might try a lower res just to see what happens.

    I'll kick mine up to 1080p and see how it does in bloody fights. My card is a zotac 9800gt eco so yea I may try clocking it a bit more as well. If not GTX295 should handle physx fine :p

    Out of curiosity have you ever tried Fluidmark with your 9800gt? My CPU only averaged 2 less FPS than my 9800 did. (31 fps for 9800 and 29 for 2600k)

    Update? Did I miss something? First thought was they locked up the "keys exploit" which they have confirmed they will be dealing with. But I checked same old plain text file...
    Not slept in awhile pulled an all nighter with it last night when I finallly got impatient and VPN'd it.
    So share any info you got :)

    Edit: Actually when I fired up the game when it officially unlocked to make sure thing were all copacetic with my saves I surprised myself when I realized I was Level 19

    OH AND VERY IMPORTANT!! TURN OFF CLOUD SUPPORT!! You may come to find yourself missing alot of hours of play. It's definitely broken for BL2 at the moment ;)

    Ok I guess there was an Update. Not much detail of course but apparently the DLC Exploit has been locked down

    LOL I had heard about that gun. Now that I have actually "heard it" that would get old fast...Apparently it;s a pretty powerful gun as well.

    Edit; Now that I think about I do have a Talking Shield :p

    30FPS on 1080. Likely due to the weaker CPU on my side.

    Just FYI at 1920X1080 still no slow down with the 9800GT as physx on high and those clocks.

    have that gun. after a while it glitched and no matter what guns I equipped it still talked in that high pitched voice. good for getting people to get out of menus and get a move on though.

    Tested with stock clocks and scored something like 1650. I oc'd it a few times and tested, got it at 735/1050 and seems stable, got these results
    [​IMG]

    So almost a 500 point gain. It's now much better on High. But say I pop the head off someone and blood comes flying out, that still drops me to about 35 fps for a bit. Which is pletny playable, just lower than I would like. But before it was like 25 fps when that happened, and didn't feel very playable.

    I don't know that you would want to be hitting 35 in too many situations. Hell I am just running CPU PhysX on Medium and have had some good dips/slowdowns with some serious skirmishes

    It doesn't happen in many situations. Only if I am point blank and blow somethings head off.

    I have had it with packs of "Big Guys" all shooting, explosions etc. and I'm running PhysX Medium so that's not even factoring in the extra particles your getting"

    Think bottleneck camp entrance with the whole camp comin at ya guns blazing ;)

    How much do y'all think the PhysX adds to the game? From that video, looks to really add to the immersion. I haven't ever used it before, but if I can get a card for cheap, might get one.

    Any recommendations on a card? I have a 6970 currently.
