i have that pc :
Intel Core i3
RAM 8 GB
GTX 560 Ti

when i had 4GB rams i blamed it for all the issues with these 2 games
but i've upgraded the rams to 8GB and i had some improvement in crysis 3 .. on low
i mean i have an amazing pc and still in the cutscenes at ghosts
it freezes but during the gameplay it's great
and in crysis 3 when i rotate camera by mouse it lags and freezes too
i'm sick of these stuff -_- any help ?

note : anybody says that my pc is bad i'll choke him to death -_- i saw videos on youtube, they run those games on ultra and with a great fps

what is exactly your CPU?, by i3 you are including a wiiiiide variety of CPUs, which one is it? what's the clock? is it a dual core?

i dunno the exact number coz i not installing cpu-z on pc now but the clock speed in windows says 3.6 GHz and yes it's a dual core but i always check my system for games and the check always passes

Please type run on the start menu (i hope you are using win 7 xd) and write dxdiag, there you should be able to see the model of your CPU, also are your drivers up to date? motherboard ones? gpu ones? also in dxdiag you should be able to check if your system really has 8gb of RAM, also please tell the frequencies of the RAM sticks and their DDR, also is your Operative system 64bit type? you can check all this in the dxdiag window

all drivers are up to date and my OS is Windows 7 64bit and rams are really 8GB -_- and the cpu is written like that in dxdiag
Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-4340 CPU @ 3.60GHz (4 CPUs), ~ 3.6GHz and rams are 1600 MHZ and DDR3

4 CPUs? wow nice that is a quad core not a dual core :p  and yes your pc is very good to be running those games, so i want you to use CPU-Z and GPU-Z and monitor your hardware while playing, i want to know if they are working at a 100% when you are because if they are not, something might be causing them to bottleneck, but before any wrong guess i want yo uto try and do that please

sorry can you say what does 100% means :D

100% means everything is working how it should when putting your PC to test, your cpu at 3,6 GHz and your GPU at the clock and memory it should be, don't you worry about that, just screenshot these programs that will monitor your hardware, post those here and i will search for your GPU and CPU specs and compare them to the readings

Pretty sure your issue is the Graphics Card. It's getting outdated and is in need on a update to run those games on ultra.

http://media.bestofmicro.com/G/8/375128/original/1920-V...

According to this: For ultra settings to achieve 60 fps you would need to crossfire 2 high end cards.

A GTX 660 TI would average 36 FPS so a 560 TI would do less than 30 thus making the game unplayable.

The people on youtube are using minimum HD 7970 or 670 to run Crysis 3 on ultra

well cpu-z clock speed is between 3100 and 3600 while playing crysis 3 that is normal i think -_- and i don't actually know what you want of it the gpu but i saw the gpu clock and it's 850 .

look man i saw videos on youtube -_- they all run it on high and ultra .. and i run it on high and ultra no issues but it's just when i spin the camera -_-

To OP - you know that Call of Duty Ghosts needs 5GB of VRAM to run smoothly?

don't you people rea the whole thread i run ghosts great but it freezes in cutscenes and i run games on 1600x900 monitor so i don't need to listen to requirements coz it it's for 1920x1080

CoD Ghosts was a very poorly optimized port and doesn't run perfectly, even on extreme high end systems. If your gameplay is just fine and you're just having cutscene issues, I'd try reinstalling the game or verifying the integrity of the game cache, maybe you have some corrupt game files that are causing issues.

Crysis 3 practically requires a quad core CPU to run well, it doesn't do well on dual cores. Your Core i3 might fare a little better because it has hyperthreading, which gives you two additional virtual cores on top of the two physical cores it has, but virtual cores from hyperthreading are nowhere near as good as an actual physical core, maybe about 30% performance of a physical core at best. All those youtube videos you linked to were on rigs with quad core chips, if you want a more realistic look at Crysis 3 performance for your computer, you'll need to find someone using a similar video card with a dual core CPU.

Getting stuttering or microlag would be normal I guess when the FPS is max 45 and if you look at the first video properly he overclocks his CPU to avoid bottleneck.

Call of duty ghosts is simply a terrible PC port. I have the game on PS4 and like it actually, but unless they've changed something since the free weekend, it just runs horrible. I've got an i5 at 4.4Ghz and a gtx680 and I still couldn't run it good. As for why it freezes in cut scenes, I'm not really sure. Also, you still need an absurd amount of VRAM to play it, even if you are at 900p.

As for the Crysis 3 videos, I never trust youtube videos. 30fps can be made to look smooth on youtube. Hell, I've seen people post youtube videos of them running BF3 on ultra with a freaking nvidia gt 610. It's simply not possible. I'd trust actual benchmarks over youtube videos.

I run crysis 3 on an hd 7750 between 35 and 55 fps on multiplayer, his video card is quite good too, in my opinion, this is not normal something is going on

You don't have to get angry, the problem is in the game and not with your PC. Look here:

Someone with GTX 680 4GB SLI running the game at 840x640 resolution use 3.9GB of VRAM...
