Default I cant take this anymore!

Basically Crysis runs like **** on my computer unless I run everything on low to the point where FarCry looks better and still dosent run as good.

Does anyone know any good configs I should use? I'm running on a 8800gts 320mb, Pentium 4 3.2ghz, 2gb of RAM.
Thanks!

Pentium 4 3.2GHz is CPU limited and single core caused everything ran on low setting, you will be fine with quad core Q6600 or Q9450 run everything high or very high setting.

Your video card is fine for 1024x768 medium-high settings as long as you go buy a dual core processor (or quad core)

I have an 8800gt and run everything on high in DX9 mode... I think your main problem is your processor.

your CPU is bottlenecking the performance. Crysis needs a dual core to run smoothly. you can get a combo of C2D E4500 and any mobo and it should perform just fine

I wasn't talking about hardware just configs and ****. I'm going to eventually upgrade the CPU but not now.

Well you said everything is on low and it still runs badly, so there's not much to advise.

Defrag, drivers, the usual... wait for the 1.2 patch.
