I've tried running with everything disabled, and oddly enough, I've found almost the exact same performance issues. I was a little surprised to say the least. I remember looking in beta and seeing that apparently alot of people had been having issues with ATI cards, including having them burnt out. I'm going to tweak with the settings some more in game based on your recommendations to see if I can find a better solution. Honestly I wish I could put some of the graphics load on my processors instead of the card to further help. Thank you for the help. I really appreciate it.
