    As part of Steam's 2k week sale, today only you can pick up Borderlands and any of its DLC for 75% off. By far the best deal is Borderlands GOTY, which includes all 4 DLC for a heckuva price - $7.50. If for whatever reason you haven't given it a go after all this time, today might be your lucky day.

    A bit of warning, the minimum specs will barely work
    I have a 3GHz dual-core and a 8800GT and I have to gimp the hell out of the graphics to get decent framerates

    Worth it tho

    Q6600 and 8800GTX runs it pretty well at 1680x1050 with all high and AA disabled.

    I have the same card and 200mhz more than you and can play it averaging mid 30's and 40's at 1080p. Most of the time I usually just play at 720p and I hardly have an issue. You might try disabling shadows as that is the BIGGEST frame reducer in this game. Also be warned that the DLC runs worse than the main game does, at least for me. Knoxx and Claptrap have some weird framerate issues when looking at the main towns from a distance.

    Same here, I have to tick Shadows off to get decent framerates, and the DLC is worst...especially the Knoxx one. Thinking of getting a GTX 570 or 460 SLI, I am due for an upgrade.

    Fantastic game though, you will be crazy to pass up this offer. I bough 2 already for a few friends.

    I went for the sale, but I have yet to see if it runs well on my rig.

    I can't imagine every other game running like butter and suddenly, with this one, I have to turn off shadows.
    That would be lame :lol:
