Yeah sorry dude i messed to cards together. Yes this is a good video card is good but 4gb ram ahh atleast 6gb for gaming. And btw you may wanna go over the cables again and check if they are fully setup. If that doesnt work your gonna have to get new video card and etc..

The graphics card is amazing.
It's the CPU that's holding you back.

yes kamen you are quite right perhaps. thanks you too kamen.i will have to upgrade the CPU and as alex said 4 GB ram isn't quite enough .

I actually added 2 GB's of RAM to my PC just yesterday.
The difference from 4GB to 6GB is practically non existent when you haven't got 20 tabs running while playing LoL and doing something else in the background.

Which i3 CPU do you have? If you go to http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/crysis-3-performanc... you will see that Crysis 3 eats CPUs alive.
As to the amount of RAM needed on a graphics card, I believe it was HardOCP that did some tests, and you have to make specific efforts to need more than 2GB. Yes, a game may take some small advantage from more if it is there, but more than 2GB is not needed particularly for a single 1920x1080 display.

I didn't believe it until I started playing it two days ago, but Crysis 3 is HEAVILY multi-threaded. I actually alt-tabbed out of the game today just to see how threaded it was and I was amazed. I can agree that an i3 would bottleneck especially paired with the Lightning. Reason the FX processors do so well in this game...

The measurements clearly show that two cores are completely overwhelmed, even with the current Pentium G2120 "Ivy Bridge" technology is not beyond 20 min-fps. This is possible, thanks to SMT is, only the Core i3-3220, but here are the playable frame rates only in the tough area. The 60-euro Athlon II X4 740X may well set the scene, he is hardly slower than the 100 euro expensive i3. The two popular models Phenom II X4 965 and Core i5-760 cut off useful, the Phenom II X6 1100T has six cores thanks to about a fifth faster. The secret star but is the 115 euro expensive FX-6300, the Core i5-2500K crack itself. The FX-8350 for 170 euros even the soon to be twice as expensive Core i7-3770K behind, only the Core i7-3960X is faster than the FX.


Ran with a Titan and low res (obviously to put strain on CPU).

That was a hideous translation, but the gist is clear; a more powerful CPU is needed to get the most out of this game.
