Hallo. I just upgreaded my GPU to 9800gtx+ 512 mb gddr3. When playing crysis on medium settings with 4x AntiAliasing i get from 16 to 30 fps. I also read on internet that this card is able to run Crysis on Ultra High with about 26 fps. While i play it on high settings and my gpu driver crashes. I was thinking that the problem is my cpu which is AMD Athlon 64 x2 5000+ @2.6 GHz. So I plan to upgread to Phenom II x4. Will that solve the problem? Also my specs are:

Amd Athlon 64 x2 5000+
4 Gb DDR2 @ 800 MHz
9800GTX+ 512 Mb GDDR3
650 Watt Corsair PSU

I would agree that the CPU is holding you back a bit. But I would be very surprised if the 9800GTX can run Crysis smoothly on Ultra. Unless you play at low resolutions, of course.

I just tried to play it on maximum at the resolution of something like 1200X1080? Do not remember the exact number. And the aa 4x and it was running at about 10-28 fps.
The graphics driver crashes sometimes when on maximum. Also can i get it to play better with overclocking? If I will get a new motherboard that lets to overclock and the phenom II x4 cpu. then I can overclock my ram, cpu and gpu. so what can you suggest? BTW I am new to overclocking.

I used to have a 9800GTX+ a year or so ago and managed to get Crysis working around 20-25ish on very high settings. I believe at that time I had Vista and an intel P4 3.4 Ghz EE chip. This was on a resolution of 1280 x 1024 (max of my monitor).

Again from memory I had to turn on triple buffering in the Nvidia driver settings to get the best framerates for Crysis.

I did though settle on high settings for playability.

Hope that helps.

I used to have that gpu a while back and yes while it can play in ultra highe settings, the game slows down considerably when in tense scenes. You can play it well and somewhat smoothly on high settings but you might want to upgrade you cpu to that quad core, it will help slightly but it will also entend the life of your current PC. Also with your PSU you can opt for a second 9800gtx+, the question is will your motherboard allow it? You should SLI these cards and then you can play crysis well on ultra settings, just around 30+ fps.
