    Hello,

    I'd like to ask for a comparesement from someone with high end graphic card - how the game looks on the lowest settings, and how on the highes possible. It would be great if such person could include the screens with the ingame measurement tool showing fps. I think I saw once a topic in which there were shown some screens to tell people which settings would give them best possible results (i.e fastest possible gameplay) but this was for low-middleish hardware suited guys, and I'd like to see if it's (and how much) worth to invest into better GPU :)

    Take care,
    B

    My computer specs are shown below. I get typically 30-60 fps on high/uber early game (such as these screenshots), but late game when there are thousands of units it's much worse but still playable. (Maybe someone else could post screenshots with FPS measurements about early and late game - I don't have time right now.) The game has not yet been fully optimized, so the performance should improve in the future.

    OS Windows 7 64bit
    CPU Intel Haswell i5-4670K, LGA1150, 3.4GHz, 6MB
    MOTHERBOARD Asus Z87-A, LGA1150, Intel Z87, DDR3, ATX
    MEMORY G.Skill 16GB (2× 8GB) RipjawsX, DDR3, 1600MHz, CL9, 1.5V
    GRAPHICS CARD MSI GeForce GTX 660 2GB Twin Frozr III

    Currently Uber not use their lighting system too much, so some options make very small difference, e.g headlights used really rarely. I think it's better wait till release when more eye-candy features implemented.
