  1. All of my systems run BL2 with Physx on high without an Nvidia card. My I5 2500K, Phenom 2 965 and I7 920 all have no issues with very little to any slowdown.

    What GPU do you have? (im planning on a HD 7850)
  3. Best answer
    A 7770 @ 1200Mhz core / 1300Mhz memory in my 965. A 7750 in my 2500k and a 6670 in my 920. All systems run the game at 1080P on high settings with draw distance set to ultra.

    There is maybe a 5 fps drop during the most intense firefights with physx on high compared to what it would normally be.

    So your I5/7850 should be perfectly fine.

  6. Not sure if you know this but you will need to edit a game file to enable the full physx features.

    Open this file with notepad:

    C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\My Games\Borderlands 2\WillowGame\Config\WillowEngine.ini


    Then hit control + F and search for: PhysXLevel

    There are 3 levels of physx in BL2. They are 0 (basically none), 1 (some effects) and 2 (full physx effects)


    Change it to either:

    PhysXLevel=1

    or

    PhysXLevel=2

    For your system PhysxLevel=2 should be the correct setting.
