  1. use gamebooster , i hope so it will go. you got a good gpu.
  2. Upgrade your GPU and overclock your processor.

    What PSU do you have?
  3. i have an acbel 660W psu. I'm thinking its a gpu bottleneck issue but i'm not so

    sure. The game runs ok with 8xAA max video setting @ 1440x900 but it only

    averages @ 30fps. I want to run it @ 60 fps solid. Any suggestions?

    I think a GTX260 or a Radeon 4890 would do it. Radeon 5770 is also a popular choice.

    You wont need anything more powerful than those for that game.

  6. Would 4870 vapor-x be an equivalent as well??
  7. It's GPU issue. I was running the game on a E5200 2.5gig dual core with a GTX 260 216 shader and maxed it at 1680x1050. Bench mark said I was getting 45ish frames on average.
