Re: Post your final config for retail crysis here!
BFG 8800GTX OC
2 GB DDR2-800
Ok so I decided that to run my native resolution, 1920x1200, I would need to sacrifice some settings from HIGH, so I decided instead to accept some interpolation by going down to 1680x1050 and still allowing the Dell to scale, rather than 1:1.
This is with 0xAA and all defaults with the 169.09 driver.
I set all ingame options to HIGH and then used the following system.cfg file located in the \program files\crysis directory.
;these vars turn on color grading, which gives the very high look
; water very high override
This gives me the full very high water effects which I love, and then the color grading extra high effect plus sunshafts.
I turn edge AA off as I find using it combined with the interpolation/scaling of the dell makes things too blurry. This gives me back only about 2fps.
I turn off motion blur as it gives me back about 5-8fps.
This combined gives me an average framerate of 35fps, with a minimum of 24fps (measure using GPU benchmark test)
It's playable, but I would love to get an average framerate of 45 or more.
