Default I finally got Crysis to run in directx 9 on Vista x64 but questions remain?

Okay I finally got Crysis to run in directx 9 under Windows Vista x64 I created a short cut icon on the desktop and made "G:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Bin64\Crysis.exe" -dx9 so the game could run under directx 9 I also downloaded Gaco's system.cfg file which I'm currently using the following layout on...

sys_spec_GameEffects = 3
sys_spec_ObjectDetail = 3
sys_spec_Particles = 3
sys_spec_Physics = 3
sys_spec_PostProcessing = 3
sys_spec_Quality = 3
sys_spec_Shading = 3
sys_spec_Shadows = 2
sys_spec_Texture = 3
sys_spec_VolumetricEffects = 3
sys_spec_Water = 3
sys_spec_Sound = 3

q_renderer = 3

r_sunshafts = 1
r_colorgrading = 1
r_UsePOM = 1
r_TexturesStreaming=0
r_UseEdgeAA = 2
r_WaterGodRays = 1

e_water_ocean_fft = 1
e_water_tesselation_amount = 10
e_detail_materials_view_dist_xy = 4096
e_detail_materials_view_dist_z = 256
e_view_dist_ratio_vegetation = 45

es_DebrisLifetimeScale = 1

g_battleDust_enable = 1
g_ragdollDistance = 40
g_ragdollMinTime = 20

q_Renderer = 3
q_ShaderFX = 3
q_ShaderGeneral = 3
q_ShaderGlass = 3
q_ShaderHDR = 3
q_ShaderIce = 3
q_ShaderMetal = 3
q_ShaderPostProcess = 3
q_ShaderShadow = 3
q_ShaderSky = 3
q_ShaderTerrain = 3
q_ShaderVegetation = 3
q_ShaderWater = 3

e_vegetation_sprites_distance_ratio = 1.5


Granted I've never had to do any of this stuff just to play a game but I don't shy away from learning something new that's tech savy knowledge is power! I guess the only other questions I have are as follows....
Is there anyway to make the light shine threw the trees and make the water look more real? I'm not seeing the sun ray effects or water effects. I'm also not seeing the rocks look textured unless I've done something wrong with the settings other then what I was directed to do.
