I'm currently running the game at the default medium settings, but I'd like more.
I'm running an i5-3210m @ 2.5GHz cpu with 4GB of RAM and nvidia 630m with 2GB.
Running almost all games at high. Crisis 2 on high at 1280x720 and no high res textures.

Thank you for any recommendations

Disable in-game vsync, enable vsync in nvidia control panel, do not even consider trying to play without it, it breaks the game in multiple ways, any one of which renders the game unplayable.

Even if you do this though, you'll probably still have trouble, m/kb controls in this game are just awful and don't work right (the mouse at least, keyboard is fine), your best bet is going to be a 360 controller if you have one laying around.

optimal setting is the 'exit game' setting, toggle it on and leave it.

I played with KB/M without vsync and it was perfectly fine.

How did you make it past the first chapter? Because you didn't do it without vsync, the physics engine literally relies on vsync being enabled to work correctly and if you have frame rates much above 60 the physics go insane anyway, on the shuttle ride in my PC runs in the 600-800 FPS range and Kendra's hair whips around like she's stuck in a wind tunnel.

I had a 4670 back then, I guess I was fluctuating around 50-60FPS, never above.

I know for a fact I wasn't using any form of vsync, I always deactivate it when first launching a game, I never use vsync.

The problem's the physics engine breaking when the game exceeds 60 fps not it requiring v-sync specifically.

It's not only that. Scripted events stop functioning properly if vsync is off. You hit an invisible wall less than 5 minutes into the game and you can't advance past it if you encountered it without vsync on, you have to restart. It's a technical impossibility for him to have beaten the game without vsync.

I beat it without vsync. Like I said, I don't ever use vsync in any game.
