Default Crysis slowdown after 5minutes

Having a bit of a problem getting Crysis to run as it should; after 5 minutes of game play, the game slows down to a crawl. This always happen when memory usage exceeds ~1300mb, and only happens in vista. Running it in 32bit doesn't make a difference.

Added some screenshots so that you could get a better idea of what I'm talking about.

Nothing is overheating and I recently increased my memory to 4Gb from 2Gb(thought this was the problem).

Seems to be a problem with Vista and I'd love it if someone could see if it affects everyone or just me?

What happens if you Alt-Tab out and back in?

Haven't tried that yet, but I'm gonna try reinstalling it without any of the patches to see if that makes a difference. Thanks for the suggestion though and I'll try it as soon as I get crysis installed again(which takes a pretty long time)!

I've not been having much luck with the 1.2 patch

I haven't tried the patch for the patch yet though.

I was running on the 1.21 patch earlier, and now without any patches I have the same problem.
Alt+tab doesn't seem to work at all in crysis :-/. The issue occurs when memory usage exceeds 1300mb. Must be a vista problem - didn't have this problem in xp. Gonna try dx9 next.

Definitely a dx10 issue; no slowdown in dx9 even though memory usage was way over 1400mb.

Hmm. Have you checked the Crysis site for solutions?

Also, are you up-to-date with your DX and Vista updates?

Yup, just did a reinstall of vista on my new samsung F1.

Any known nvidia patches for vista that I could try maybe?

(this game runs pretty nicely on dx9 )

Gonna try dx10 + high settings, same ones I used on dx9.

Yep, but I now can't seem to get the memory usage above 1300mb with dx10+high settings.

One thing that I do find odd is how different the memory usage is between dx9 and dx10; dx9 seems to use a lot more memory than dx10 from the start of the level(~1200mb), while the memory usage increases gradually with dx10(starting from ~900mb).

r_texturestreaming = 0 doesn't seem to have the same affect in dx10 as it has in dx9.

If you already have the SP1 installed, then DO NOT follow this link:
