As for your rig, something is wrong. I can play Crysis at 1280x800 (my monitors native res is 1680x1050, but if I keep to the 16:10 aspect ratio lower resolutions look fine) with 4xAA, 16xAF, and all in-game options set to "High" and it never dips below 20fps. It remains *very* playable. So something is definitely wrong with your setup...
Hmmm...tell me, are you always play games while you are online? (EX: keep msn running, downloading files ), if yes, do you keep your anti-virus software running? (like firewall, backdoor block, etc....)
I ask this question because I'm doing those things while I'm playing games, don't know if it will affect my performance badly.
