Haha... funny that you mention that.

I'm about 4 levels into the game now, and the game is starting to take its toll on my lowly P4. During heavy firefights, the framerate does fall into the single digits. However, I've figured out that even though the processor can't keep up, the ram can. Even though it's slowed down to as low as 5 fps, the framerate is still consistant (no lagging frames or such...)

As such, I must concede that 5 fps is wayyyy below the playable range for any game. Soooo the game is playable to an extent on the minimum spec system.

I'm going to guess "Operating System - Windows Vista Ultimate (Retail)" is the culprit.

It ran fine on low/medium settings on my friend's computer with only a 6800 GT, a P4, and 1 GB of ram.

No its not unless he just doesnt have all the updates and hotfixes installed. I have played the crysis demo back to back under both XP and Vista 64 using the dX9 path. The difference in the FPS was 1-2frames which swung in either direction depending on the situation.

Maybe I need some hotfixes because Crysis runs like crap in Vista for me and runs awesome in XP. It hiccups and hitches in Vista so bad. The framerate seems to be the same overall when it's not stuttering, but when there's these pauses it drags them down. It runs awesome on XP though. There's something up IMO. Most other games for me run just the same in Vista, but this one seems to be the exception for me.

Also I do only have 2 GB. But it doesn't seem to be maxing out my ram so I dunno.

It's a well known fact that Vista eats up ram. 4GB is recommended for Vista. Even if it doesn't look like the ram is being maxed out, you probably want to get it so you'll have more resources on tap.

Madpistol is correct. This is why I love Vista 64 because it can utilize all 4gbs of ram. No hitches in crysis here at all.
