What kind of FPS do you guys get and what DirectX version/flag are you using?
I have 8800 GTS 512 MB (new core) and I can't get any playable FPS when using default DX9. I must use DirectX 8.1 :(

How about you guys?

I played through all of HL2 on my 7800GT and it ran picture perfect.

I did specify a few flags in the run options for the game (from within Steam).

-novid : skips that Valve vid at the beginning which did lag the game when starting up.

-gl : opengl mode
