Default Re: Vanilla Crysis Dx9 = wow !

anyway, i fired up crysis on the freshly installed o.s and gave it a run. to my amazement
i've never seen the game run so smooth. i put on the -devmode and jumped back in game
and the fps NEVER went below 30 and was usually between 40 and 50 CONSTANTLY, unless
turning quickly n what have you. yeah yeah, i know vanilla dx9 mode -but it actually
looks pretty darn tootin'. -coupled with the high FPS it's really like playing the videos
minus the sun flares, and a few other fancy details. but, right now i don't really care..

waiting for whatever comes after the geforce 10..
What matters though is what resolution and settings were you using?
Intel Q6700 - XFX 8800 ULTRA xXx - Gigabyte P35-DQ6 - 4GB Patriot DDR2 800 - x2 Seagate 320GB SATAll - DELL 2408wfp
