I upgraded to Windows 8 for the performance increase, had been using it on my laptop for awhile. Its really not too bad. I didn't do any testing but it seemed like a solid 15 fps increase, this is on an i3770k at 4.5 ghz and GTX 680 FTW+ 4gb. There are plenty of programs to add the traditional start menu back, I don't ever see the metro screen - using Start8.
Me to. I wish my 680's were 4GB, I keep rubbing up against the VRAM ceiling a little to often in this game so I have to leave MSAA off (really unfortunate since the PostAA looks like total garbage).
That's crazy - my 680m is 4GB. I find it nuts that the far better desktop version wasn't that as standard.
Still, I can't use MSAA ever since the performance hit is huge so it's not like I'm winning out there.
