    not really, yea a strong gpu is required but the rest is just a marketing gimmick, it runs great with 4gb and a decent quad, on high @dx10 with enhanced physx and its very smooth, nothing like stalker stutter fiesta..
    guess those that have low fps must be running into gpu mem limitations + high resolutions, on v.high is very mem depended especially cause of all hdr, ao, blurring effects..

    if i use high its great but damn i want v.high, i know i can in some areas but when a strong volumetric light appears it starts to crawl to ~20fps lol

    although yea it looks addictive and there some nice cinematic parts with great effects, even on high its nice.

    FOV is simply to change.

    Just make sure you change it in BOTH locations ( I mentioned previously) and use the BC2 FOV Calculator as this game also uses newer Vertical FOV not older Horizontal FOV.

    I have the same issue, as well with BC2. I just ended up downloading FRAPS on it's own. Works great.

    To decode the User.cfg file the easiest would be to take the default one and the user created one in the User/Documents and Settings folder and merge them to get all settings, then switch a option off or alter one of those presets and quit, having made a copy of the cfg first and compare them in for example Winmerge or similar program to see what's changed, might not help much overall until a unpacker or similar is out to alter the actual game configuration presets in more detail but it might help a bit.
    (Unless the settings are more hardcoded so you get a option that tells the game to run in low, medium, high or v.high but nothing for the individual options.)

    EDIT: Example of a file I've tinkered a bit with doing this.
    (Still don't have the game but I can access several files and others have posted their files plus I posted the default user.cfg so merging them was quite easy and adjusting the options and presets worked out quite well, stripped out some extra and duplictes however like the key bindings being set two times one for KB and one for Gamepads so I remove those.)

    That should be the entire full User.cfg file without much actual tweaks.
    (I set the console to a separate key and also set godmode and infinite ammo, which doesn't work based on the Steam forums apparently anyhow, but I didn't touch the FoV value though I set resolution to native and enabled more advanced GPU PhysX options as I use a AGEIA PPU which might or might not work, something to test Friday night when the game is released over here also set the gi option to 1 for global illuminiation but that might murder framerate.)

    I installed & tested in my Phenom II x4 940 @ 3.64Ghz system w/ a GTX 275 , 8GB of RAM, & I get an average 10-15 fps more on normal & maybe 6-10 on high w/ Adv Physx enabled. It's very GPU bound obviously with Adv Physx enabled, so I disabled it. I was able to get 55-105 on normal & 29-55 on High. This makes me want a dedicated Physx card. I would love to see some benchmarks with Adv Physx on & off as well as with/without a dedicated Physx card.

    im at game atm and antialiasing is a huge killer, not recommended lol seriously from 45 to 15-25fps at high setting and using ingame 4xaa..

    high setting and dx10 with adv physx enabled seems to be the best choice for current cards, without antialiasing of course especially you play at full HD reso or more and it looks like its very gpu vram hungry game just like gta4.

    Well I tested it again a few times with & without Adv Physx & could duplicate the drop in fps. Oddly enabled Adv Physx on my Phenom 9550 setup with the same specs & it seemed increase the FPS. Maybe the setting takes the load off of the CPU, which would increase the FPS on a system with a slower CPU, but bottlenecks a faster CPU, both having the same GPU. Or just could be both my systems are wacky o urnoptimized drivers, lol.

    Wow, brutal game, my worst fears are confirmed, all decent DX11 games will rape any current gpu, just like with DX10 in the beginning, we all know how well crysis ran on the recommended spec card which was an 8800gt 512mb.

    This game: HD5850 in DX11 mode with tessellation on, DOF off, no AA...25 frame average.

    When will we be able to run DX11 games with decent AA at 60 frames solid?....3rd gen DX11??

    So much for future proof, people that spent all those $'s on crossfire setups to get <60 frames with no AA will be pissed, I would be.

    And anyone that says they get 60 frames maxed with 2x5850's is full of $hit, if 1 gets 25 in DX11 mode with DOF OFF and no AA, then there is no way it would come close with Xfire scaling.

    Nvidia is going even worse on the gpu front in this game of course, but for a several year old card...what can you expect.

    I wonder how true the 8gig recommended ram thing was, my system uses close to 4 gig running crysis warhead in DX9 mode...

    So far I'm loving this game. It's pretty annoy though how your partner never waits up for you. Always speeds up ahead leaving you behind.

    I don't understand why this is such a surprise for you guys. Every single time a new API becomes standard it crushes the first generation or two of cards designed to use it. This happened with DX9, DX10, and now DX11.

    It's just surprising because the first few DX11 games made little use of DX11 and made me think that like this entire multiplat generation of PC gaming, that new API's had plateaued. Every other DX11 game only used a miniscule amount...if any tesselation, and until now no other game has made use of the higher shaders/tessellation and the performance optimisations.

    BFBC2: extra shaders, no tesselation, no multi threading enhancement.

    etc etc.

    I thought DX11 was going to be a non event with tesselation reserved for tech demo's etc, the PCGH benchmarks of this game have made me seriously rethink buying a GPU any time soon.

    especially as the next gen of console's will be pumping out DX11 multiplats, if they take 2 years to arrive, a high end GPU now would be dogs meat by then.

    It's just disappointing.
