I was wondering if this comp well be more then enough to hit 40+ fps on crysis with the resolution of 1680 x 1050

with all very high settings + x4 aa. If I buy parts today ill get Friday :D  So i need to make sure it can run it.

I already bought the case


Here is the hardware

probably.... considering that maxed means w/o AA and I think it could be a bit jumpy at times. I have 4870 and it runs in that res on high. I would consider getting a quad core because crysis and other games are starting to adapt to it.

Yes and no; on all Very High without antialiasing you'll probably be able to get a alright framerate at that resolution, but with antialiasing the performance won't be stellar. Crysis Warhead's updated engine does actually perform quite a bit better than the original Crysis, and I have been very happy with the boost I've seen with my single overclocked 8800GTX.

Well maxed out to me means everything, the answer is no. A quad will have little to no advantage in Crysis.

WHAT???

Excuse everyone here talking rubbish. A 3.33GHZ CPU + 4870x2 WILL RUN CRYSIS AT GIVEN DETAILS NO PROBLEM.

I have a Q6600 oced to 3.4 GHz (roughly what you have specced. and an 8800GT at stock. It runs maxed out 1680x1050 Crysis without the AA @ 30-50FPS (30 min 50 odd max)

The 4870x2 will crank Crysis HARD at 1680x1050. NO Problem.

October 15, 2008 2:40:18 PM

with AA you'll probably see high 20's low 30's. I could be wrong.

Lol, right; what are you doing, counting the frames? :sarcastic: 

There's no way you're running Crysis on all VERY HIGH at 1680x1050 on an 8800GT with a framerate as you're describing. Your CPU is strong no doubt, but the results you're describing are only achievable on a 4870 X2 or GTX 280.
October 15, 2008 7:32:06 PM

All right thanks for the reply's :)  But im now confident ill be able to handle Crysis. I saw some benchmarks with a similar system running Crysis in dx10 with all very high settings + 4aa in 1680 x 1050 or more with good fps

Show the benchmarks that show that I am not.

I run the DX 10 hack from XP, saving resources your vista rig uses.

i haven't seen crysis on XP benchmarks anywhere. Also my q6600 @3.42 isn't a standard either.

Put up or shut up.

True, I don't have the FPS displayed but I know I am not less than 30. I run wiht no jumpy crappiness etc. I have been gaming fps's for a LONG time and I can see when the framerates drop.

Maybe I am not hitting 50 FPS, thats a guess. but I stay above 30.

Here are benchmarks from Crysis Warhead, which runs better than the original on a QX9770 at 3.6GHz, 4GB of 1600MHZ DDR3, with a GTX 280, GTX 260, Radeon 4870X2, and Radeon 4870.



Not only is the CPU faster than yours, but all of the cards they tested are faster than your 8800GT, and it's at the same resolution you claimed to be running. These were what they considered to be the highest playable settings on each card, but as you can see even the GTX 280 didn't get away with everything at the max.

Now I'm sure you'll respond saying your 8800GT runs Crysis better than all of their hardware did, but how about you try running fraps instead of guessing what your framerate is.
October 16, 2008 8:08:37 PM

Instead of guessing, how about going into the console, typing in r_displayinfo=1, coming back here and posting your FPS? Crysis is one of those games that runs well even with a lower framerate, so what feels like 60 FPS may actually be 30 FPS.

Even on youtube they have benchmarks with higher results of fps using the hd 4870 x2 fully maxed out on Very High settings accept "AA" on 1680 x 1050.... When did they run that card before cata 8.9 ?

None of what you posted is relevant.

All those systems will be running VISTA, and they are all using AFx16 dumbass. AND its not even from the same game.

I will check out the numbers when I get home today.

And as mentioned those benchies look a little suspect with regards to the driver versions.

October 17, 2008 9:35:09 AM

The detail settings aren't even labeled the same. Who bloody knows exactly the draw distances, number of rays etc etc. those settings correspond to.

Nice way to show your ignorance.
October 17, 2008 9:37:05 AM

This also is not relevant to the first question, which I believe I answered correctly.

So poo on you.

I'm sure HardOCP is really messing with the numbers, or their test setup is completely messed up, because they don't know how to properly benchmark games, but you obviously do. Maybe if they followed your method of looking at the image and guessing, all of these cards would have a higher framerate. :pt1cable: 

Also, you must be a dumbass if you honestly think anistrophic filtering is going to hurt performance on a GTX 280. I know it's in Vista, but their CPU is faster than yours, as well as EVERY GPU setup they used on a more recent and optimized version of Crysis.

You know, you may be getting better results for your card then benchmarks from other sites have shown, but your original claim of "30-50 odd fps" on all Very High, XP or not was ****, unless of course that 50 is when you're in a small room or looking at the ground or something. :sarcastic:

The whole point was they weren't even running the max on a GTX 280 with a faster CPU on a newer more optimized version of Crysis and they still didn't get performance as amazing as you were claiming.

Well, since we're all on Tom's forums, lets use some of Tom's benchmarks. The following is from April of this year using max settings. As you can see, the 8800GT can't even pull 20FPS even without AA. While it is Vista SP1, that alone can not possibly count for the 10+ increase in FPS.

Here is a thread where an individual benchmarked his own system with an 8800gt in both XP and Vista. As this is not an official site, take all marks with a grain of salt but there is not that much difference shown. In addition, adding dx10 in xp would only lower the FPS marks due to the fact that there is more detail to render.

Ok I will at least admit I fail.

I was running @ 1280x1024 NOT 1680x1050.

I apologise for my mistake.

It runs between 30-40 FPS with no AA or AF.

Open to all flametards now.
October 20, 2008 1:15:35 PM

That is believable at that resolution. Thank you for correcting your honest mistake. No bashing from me.

There's no need to "flame" anyone; you made a mistake and admitting it is a lot better than what some would do. Your results sound a lot better at 1280x1024, and I'm sure your 3.4GHz monster helps you get those results.
October 21, 2008 4:48:33 PM

You people stink at flaming, this dude was flaming everyone and you let him get off easy.
October 21, 2008 5:57:56 PM

The idea is to put an end to flaming. Not to continue the cycle. It just wastes forum space.

I get 999 FPS in Crysis all maxed out at 1920x1200 with an 8800GTX.



On the loading screens...
October 21, 2008 10:26:56 PM

999 max or average FPS? Is that with the card overclocked or stock?

I run the card underclocked because i dont like alot of performance.

LOL nice one... Does that really matter though? Plus not even my 4870 is loading at 999 fps... how are you getting that many frames? :S

You're not reading carefully enough ;)
