    I'm not going to buy this game, because this game does not support multi-cores.

    thanks... from a brief skim of this thread (as I'm at work now)... it seems like the performance isn't that good... would I be ok in high settings on my rig @ 1920X1200?
    If i go anything lower on my 24" screen it looks crap... all fuzzy

    Not sure. I can run SHoC(the first) with everything max + 4xAA at 1920x1080 fine. Its just the DX10 thats killing everyone I'm pretty sure. It goes Full Dynamic Lighting, Enhanced Full Dynamic and DX10 Lighting or something like that, if you just do Full or Enhanced you will fine on Clear Sky :)

    Couple of tips:

    1. First faction you come accross, do jobs for them. Then, join their faction. Free gun, armour and ammo! Later, leave, go join another one. Rinse and repeat. 2. Green boxes lying around usually have ammo in them. Raid em and sell it. 3. Upgrade your pistol first. Seriously, mine can snipe the balls of an ant at 50 yards.
    ShadowFold says thanks.

    I would say probably not.. 1440x900 i'm fine at maximum settings with 8xAA, but if i pump up the resolution past that it gets to be pretty low fps..

    Yeah, I just found that out... looks like the option to leave was removed in the latest patch. You could always try... killing someone in the faction, see if they kick you out, but then you have new enemies.
