1440x900 res. all settings on "High" no AA just AF
Getting anywhere from 48 - 72 FPS while playing. Obviously if I go to the beach and look out into the ocean it goes over 100fps. But on avg running about playing single player Id say I'm holding 60 - 65 on avg.

Your using Windows XP, so the Very High settings are unavaliable to you as the "use" DirectX 10, which windows XP does not support.
If you read through Tweakguides guide to Crysis, this will show you how to enable most of the Very High features in Crysis while in DirectX9 mode. You can see from his screenshots that this results in an extremely close comparisons.
I play Crysis in very high setting (sometimes) an I'm using win xp pro and to get Very High settings was extremely easy to do.
Heres how I did it if you wanted to give this a try (Backup these 2 files in a new folder)
in the new folder create a new sub folder an switch the names on the 2 .DLLs and keep a pair of the old .DLLs incase you need them later. Another thing you may need to do is setup your shortcut by adding -DX10 in the target field.
