    max out all settings, turn HBAO off, v-sync off(since doesn't work, but does lower performance)AA off, AF @ 4x, is good for 2560x1600 on single 5870. I cannot get v-sync working at all on 5870 currently. One of many things to look at this weekend for me.

    for Eyefinity, medium settings, or two cards, same settings. I notice a huge loss of in-game "scoring ability" with anything more than that9in other words, PC's performance is too slow, affecting online gameplay accuracy).

    wow that's a huge res right now im running all med settings detail on high 4x AF @1680x1050 and its decent tho there can be some lag spots such as 2 tanks and a helo all clustered together and then blowing up

    so hopefully i can run high settings with 2x aa or does it do the same thin on the 5xxx series as this where AA kills the game if you zoom in with anything

    I don't get any slowdown anymore. They have updated the drivers well enough now I stay well above 60 FPS with everything at max.

    I think that's your cpu that helps, mailman. I get slow downs on occasion, even with Crossfire. He's got E8400 dualcore.

    Nice avvy, BTW.:laugh: Interesting choice, that one...

    I've yet to really have any issues with my HD5870...been using it since about a week after the game's official release. I run 1920x1080, 4xaa, hbao on, everything cranked up to the max...runs great now and has for quite a while. I know there were some issues early on..but those were quickly fixed iirc...I'm on 10.6 w/o issues...I haven't even looked into updating drivers since everything works so well.

    10.7 did not change anything related to BC2 to my knowledge. It did add hardware support for VLC and fixes for several Eyefinity bug fixes.

    I bet a lot of the young bucks on TPU have no idea. I used to love the "old man" he had on that show.

    Very good to know about the crossfire. Just got a 5870 with a free Evga X58 board off ebay. Just hope it all works (even though he said it all did). Just that whole too good to be true thing.

    Though I've just got a single monitor so no concerns about Eyefinity.

    Yeah, the M95 at the end with no real gain sucks, but you also get basically a tie for the best Sniper Rifle to start out with off the bat, unlike other classes that have to dig deep to get theirs.

    Most of us still haven't played as much as you yet, I finally just hit rank 38, but I don't think I'm even over 200 hours yet.

    Well, I got Lt. Colonel today. I am a little over 200 hours. Close to Plat for the M416 and I guess I will stick with Recon for a while after that.

    While the M24 you start with is easily the second best, arguable the best Sniper Rifle. People still don't get the kit says RECON and not SNIPER, but I digress. I will brag a little and say that I am pretty good at the kit especially in Squad Deathmatch. Setting that asside, almost every gun for Assault is good in its own regard. The F2000 is the only low point and it is still good for prey and spray at close range. Engineer easily gets the short end of the stick for starting equipment. The Scar-L is nice to replace it, but not the best the kit has to offer IMO.

    :eek: Yeah, in the amount of time you put in those hours, it's going to make anyone hate it. I'm still loving the game, but if I had played that much in that amount of time, heck even if I had 540 hours in right now, I probably would no longer play the game. I would look back and say it was great, and that I enjoyed it, but that I got my time out of it and I'm done.
