about SM 3.0/DX, if i can only play it on DX 8.1, it still looks pretty damn sweet! not that i wouldnt recommend a SM 3.0 card, of course.

and yes, the 6800 GT is a 3.0 card

btw, the 6800 gt has sm3.0 right?

i hope they get this ironed out by release
I'm suprised 6800 users are seeing such bad performance. Especailly since this is a game "made for Nvidia." I have to say that I have had few graphics related problems in the BF2 there are other problems I have had with it, because its a very buggy demo.
