Playing Dota 2 on Arch Linux

Many Arch users like to play Dota2.. I have installed steam and playing Dota2 for a few months on my arch setup.. there is a bit difference playing it on arch or windows.. but still I get arrount 90 fps with my gtx650 2 GB , 8 GB RAM ddr3, and Xeon X5492 3.4 Ghz CPU.. Same fps in windows.. so if you are willing to try this out you just have to go to your Pamac.. or terminal and install steam, after doing that you can find Dota2 in Linux section for games.. and download it. After installation just go for it.. Its really great game.. and also it works fine.. I get arround 40 fps on my laptop i5 with intel 3500 graphics.. with low settings.. but its still playable…

here is how ti looks on Arch:

This screenshoot is about 1 year old.. and as you can see it shows 109 fps  …

 

But if you wish to get great performance you have to disable all desktop graphic stuff.. I use xfce so I dont have compiz and all that candy look..
