Default Vanilla Crysis Dx9 = wow !

after a few days of fumbling around trying to find which OS was best suited
for my needs i decided to use Xp 32 bit, SP 2. -driver support is by far the best
and i'm doing audio recording as well as gaming so it's a good balance for both.

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..

Vanilla usually means software in it's original state. No expansions or updates, modifications etc.

Quake 3 Arena = vanilla. Quake 3 Rocket Arena = not vanilla (chocolate chip)

What matters though is what resolution and settings were you using?

Amazing. My computer is better and I don't get those framerates unless I run at low. Even medium in some places runs lower than 20 fps even though it's select places. I run at 1680x1050.
