    I got a coupon with my GTX 275 that let me get Mirror's Edge for 15$, too bad it has to be digital.. Well I'm about to buy it just to try the PhysX thing.

    Wherever I can find the iron.
    If you prefer it on Steam, it's $20.

    I think it's a great game, not worth the fifty bucks when it came out, but definitely worth twenty.

    It's pretty fun so far. I might have to get a 9400GT or something to get the PhysX to run better. Starts lagging when glass starts breaking and flags get shot.

    I got Mirrors for 360 right when it came out. I went to GameStop when they had a Buy 3 Get 1 Free deal, and I knew I wanted Mirror's Edge, so I got Mirrors, Dead Space, and some other game. 7 days later, I returned Dead Space and the other game, and for Mirrors for free. Best $0 I've ever spent :D

    I now have it for PC. Got a key off somebody for like $20 a month or so back.

    Was it really slow for you Shadow? It sure isn't for me :D

    I'm not sure, but if I had to guess, I would say SPs.

    Oh yea the graphics are very nice. That's one of the cool things, looks awesome with 4x AA and runs pretty good.

    I would seriously check out your GTX275 shadow. My GTX260 core 192 at stock runs it stellar with PhsyX on, 1920x1200, 8xAA. And believe me, I'm as anal about framerate as you are.

    Maybe do some 3DMark Vantage comparisons to see if yours is working up to par.

    I would say no...

    That's with PhysX on, but I don't think it matters in 06. It's harder to tell in 06 though, because I have 1 more core, but it's clocked lower. The SM2.0 and SM3.0 scores are different though, but those scores go up with CPU clock as well.

    You don't have the 4th core active do you? Any way you could do a Vantage run in Vista or W7?

    No I don't have the 4th core enabled. I don't want to reformat and use Vista or 7 right now.. I doubt that's the problem. I'm about ready to get a 4890. Nvidia has lost my respect, again.

    I probably wouldn't mind taking that 275 off your hands :p I wish I didn't have to RMA it though. That's what I would do personally. If you got it off Newegg, get on chat and bitch until they swap you for a 4890.
