    Some places where I found info about how to tweek the Vanguard performance:

    That can help to make your FPS go a few better, but maybe you need make a PC’s upgrade. I don’t know what PC are you using, but the minimal recomendation that exist at the VSoH’s box is not a PC I recomend for play Vanguard.

    For start, 1 gig ram is the minimal I think can run VSoH fine. 2 gig make it run better. 4 gig make it a few better than 2 gig. Pci-express help a lot, it is faster. From there is this Brad McQuaid’s quote:

    “Graphics card probably matters the most. 128M is ok, 256 better. Haven’t noticed a significant difference going to 512M.

    A pci-express system vs. an AGP system helps a lot.

    An xfi sound card will give you about 5fps more because it offloads the sound processing to the APU.”

    Going from 1 gig to 2 gigs is good. Going to 4 gigs helps a bit, but not nearly as much as 1 gig to 2.

    CPU is probably last. A faster CPU helps, but usually we’re not CPU bound.”

    and this quote:

    “I forgot to mention fast system memory. Since we move so much data around, this helps a great deal (having a fast FSB and the memory to take advantage of it).”

    and this quote:
    “The new core duos help a lot, but not as much because they have two cores, but because they deal with moving memory around better. We are already taking advantage of more than one core, off loading music to an xfi card, etc., but not nearly to the point that we will in the coming months.”
