How is Crysis running for GeForce 7800 SLi users?
 
Hi, I've been playing around with the Crysis demo's settings all week trying to get a respectable frame rate. I've installed the latest nvidia drivers (169.09) but it doesn't seem to have made a difference to my frame rate.

I thought I'd make a separate thread for this because everywhere else people are talking about their 8 series cards, with 7 series users mysteriously silent.

How are other people finding Crysis with GeForce 7 series in SLi? Particularly the 7800 GTX.

I'm getting anything between 5 and 14 fps depending on my computer's mood (the Crysis benchmark gives me between 9 and 11 fps average. I'm reluctant to set Textures, Objects, Shaders, Postprocessing, and Water below High, or use a resolution below 1280 x 1024 (this is what's giving me the above frame rates).

I look forward to hearing other people's experiences (not 8800 users please, sorry, but there's already plenty of info for those). Thanks.

I would seriously suggest 1024x768 if you want the game to be both playable and enjoyable. Dropping the post-processing to low or at least medium will likely also give you another boost in frame rate, if it's still unplayable there try shadows on medium as well. If you're not willing to drop your settings you have 4 alternatives... 8800GT, 640MB 8800GTS, 8800GTX, 8800Ultra... there's just no way around it.

Perhaps you're right. The 8800 GTS 320MB should only run about 8-9 fps faster than 7800 GTX SLi but I expect your faster CPU might be adding the rest.

It's semi-playable in 1024 x 768 but the jagginess of detailed scenes is annoying, especially on 24" 1900 x 1200 monitor.

I got 14.14 fps at 1024 x 768
and 10.21 fps at 1280 x 1024
(shaders, textures, objects, postprocessing, and water on high, and the rest on medium).

It would seem a shame to have to pay out 200 / $400 to replace an already expensive SLi set-up that barely got used.

Do any 7800 GTX SLi users have any experiences to compare?

I ran the demo at 1280x960 with everything set high and got about 25 - 30 fps with my 8800 GTS 320.

I'm starting to think that a processor upgrade would give me much more fps for my money.

i would upgrade video card before processor. Your processor upgrade is going to run you more than an 8 series card would anyway.
