8 core 3.6 ghz
8 gig ram
gtx 450 1 gb

I figured my computer could handle this game quite well. One thing I have noticed that even if I drop the video settings the from low or high I only lose like 2-5 fps. But that doesnt matter when I get only 15-30 fps. What is causing my pc to not run this game correctly? I already use these tweaks:

running as an administrator (I turned this off from CP)
nosplash -cpucount=8 -exThreads=7
Post-processing to Low
rendered frames ahead
Game process priority - Set it on High
Closed open background windows
Updated latest drivers

My old GTX285 had the same framerate @1920x1200pix so i just swapped it for a GTX580 and all is better now. How many "rendered frames ahead" you have? This seems to make quite the differance when it comes to performance im using 1 or maybe try 3 and 5. Also try the "performance mode and single display prio mode" in the NV driver config.

Did you know about the : New features: FXAA Anti-Aliasing mode, user-definable memory allocators, new scripting commands, new commandline options
