Default Re: Help! I need tech advice on Crysis settings.

Your system is nearly identical to mine, and I have to use medium settings to get playable framerates at 1920x1200 resolution. High is just too jerky, and in scenes where there are a lot of action, frame rates frequently dip to mid teens making things quite difficult to control. The later winter levels stress things even further, with my framerates taking about another 5-6 FPS dip. At higher resoltions, very high just isn't practical unless you are running an SLI GTX / Ultra rig. One thing I did find during my tests is that I saw no performance gain going from the default speed of 2.66 Ghz of my CPU at 1066 FSB to 3.0 Ghz 1333 FSB overclocked. I even did a brief test at 3.4 Ghz with my new cooling and it made no difference. Seems like this game wouldn't care if you had a 386 processor, it just doesn't seem to make use of extra processor muscle.

I am running DX9 under WinXP Pro.
