I'm currently playing on high with *i think* 16x aa and pulling frames that are above 30fps. That rate dips in maps that are much tighter quarters but I was overall surprised (a) how good the game looks and (b) how merciful it is on my system.
While there's also opinions on either side of the fence re: GPU/CPU intensive, my experience is that this thing is eating up my 470gtx more than the q6600 though I wouldn't be surprised to hear that there is a bottleneck there as well. Heard a few comparisons to similar performance as Crysis 2 but YMMV
