Default How much is my cpu bottlenecking in crysis?

Hail! I wanted to ask how much my CPU is bottlenecking my system when playing crysis.

I have windows vista 32bit
2gb of ram
Geforce 8800gtx
and finally an Amd Athlon X2 4600+ 2x512mb Cache running at 2.6ghz...

How much more fps/smoother gameplay will i get by purchasing an Intel E6850 or a Q6600 infront of my old cpu?


Cheers!

I had a single core Athlon @ 2.8Ghz before moving to my current CPU, and I did not notice any difference using high settings @ 1600x1200 with my 8800.

Why don't you run the CPU benchmark and then we can compare? Make sure to post your settings otherwise it will be hard to compare the results.

Crysis is very GPU dependent. I don't believe your CPU is bottle-necking Crysis at all.

Lol get some knowledge.. I have that cheap AMD cpu and a single gtx and i can run the game on a tweaked cfg with all veryhigh settings on in 1280x1024 without lag, 25 - 30+ mostly all the time... feels smooth and fine, fps drops in bigger firefights and when alot of physis going on. So no crysis aint crap. Just a demanding engine, try to get that. Also you should get decent framerates with SLI if you use the latest drivers. Like these ppl;



27fps on veryhigh in 1920x.. imagine running on 1600/1650 or even 1280x what smooth fps u should get. Altho they are ultras, gtx aint far behind...

Not talking about the 3 ultras you moron. Look at the SLI... 27fps on that resolution in veryhigh is good. You should be able to get even better fps at lower resolutions... You seem to have dirt inside your skull.. or low IQ, pff
