Picking higher textures but lowering shadows is much more appealing to the eye (and better fps) than medium textures and medium shadows... ---- Diablo 3 - new tristram waypoint 2880x1800 high = 21fps Textures = High Physics = High Shadows = High Clutter Density = High Anti-Alias = on 2880x1800 low = 26fps Textures = Low Physics = off Shadows = Low Clutter Density = off Anti-Alias = off 1920x1200 high = 46fps 1920x1200 high (but shadows med) = 56fps 1920x1200 textures=high, shadows=off, clutter=off, physics=low, lowfx=on, aa=off = 62fps (73fps in the inn) 1920x1200 low = 62fps 1680x1050 high = 59fps 1680x1050 low = 78fps 1440x900 high =76fps 1440x900 low = 99fps ---- Temperature & Fan Speed 85-99C temp 5000-6000rpm fan The keyboard is not hot to the touch, only the strip of metal between the screen and the FN keys is hot to touch, but i can comfortably leave my fingers there for a long time.
