All my other games with AA work okay, like Oblivion, except Crysis Warhead and Far Cry 2, they cut my fps in half. Is this normal? :??:

Those two games are not very well optimized and a heavy drop in frame rate when AA is applied is very possible.

Also given that you have everything maxed out and only 512 MB or video RAM. AA will eat that up quickly.

I just checked the charts here and the 9600 GT 512 MB card does drop hard when AA is applied ton many games including Far Cry 2.
