as per my specs down below, i have windows vista. now playing crysis on it was very hair pulling. would top 30 fps

windows 7 on other hand is a godsend! i can easily scrape 60 - 85 fps when free and 45 - 50 fps when in battle.

i cant believe how much of an improvement their was!!!:)  :)  :) 

has this happened to any one else that has upgraded to 7 rc?? would like to know.





NOTE: game settings for both vista and 7 = gamer/high, no aa, 1280x720(yeah i know but still looks dam good)

Wow, a 4870x2 at 1280....

What is the native res of your monitor?

Well the main reason people are commenting about it is because a 4870X2 at that res is quite useless since it does very little work.

try it at 1920x1080p and see if it runs that great.

As for the FPS boost, I have heard that 7 is highly optimized. I only wounder if they will give Vista the same optimizations via SP2....
a b $ Windows 7

It will help that it's a clean install of Windows (I assume) with very little going on in the background.
