Metro is very demanding in DX11 mode.

the best way to make up the frames is to turn ADOF off, as it eats up tonnes for a relatively minor effect.

Overclocking helps also, so long as you have the know-how. i tend to OC my 5870 to 1000mhz core for that game, and it brings me above 30fps average with everything maxed.

IMO, the game looks terrible.

My system couldn't play the game well even without DX11 or physx but I thought it looked pretty great. But to answer the OPs question the performance you are getting is normal for that game. It is one of the very few games your card won't be able to max out at that resolution.

I turned off advanced depth of field and reduced my reso from 1900x1000 to 1600x900, with MSAA 4X or something on and now it's running at around 30-50 (alot higher somtimes depending on the scene)

Does any1 know if AAA is meant to do much? because when i have that selected.. there's substantial jaggedness on objects (almost as if AA wasnt on at all?).

Honestly, I dont think that one should have more than 2x AA at 1600x900 and above.

depends on the game. 4xaa/8xaf is the optimal choice. jaggies are still visible @ 2xaa.

Even if its there, its very minute.Not worth the performance drop by having more AA.I personally do not recommend AA at full HD or higher resolutions.4x AA is is recommended for resolutions below 1680x1050.
