I notice that whenever I have my SLi enabled, there's no real difference in gameplay with it being turned off.

Though nVidia has an SLI profile for it I doubt that it really benefits from SLI (unless the rest of your system is a real dog?). It runs just fine with my old ATI X800XL. I suspect the game is more CPU and memory intensive than graphics since I got a real boost in performance when I went from 1GB to 2GB.

Well, that explains it. Yes, the game is more dependant on processor, even more so than RAM. I have 2GB's though. My processor is a X2 3800 AMD. I was just wondering.

Thanks :D
