    Well its not the graphics that cause it to lag its the thousands of calculations for wind speed, physics, clouds, thermal winds etc and all that kinda stuff.

    True, but since the minimum spec suggests a 1 ghz proc and my quad (I realise it ain't gonna make use of all 4 cores, but SP1 was supposed to introduce multi-threading)is at 3.2ghz you'd expect reasonably smooth performance. I mean to say, it plays OK with everything on Ultra (which it defaults to on my rig), just not great. Annoying considering how much my rig set me back, LOL
