Crysis - poor preformance

Hey guys I just built my first gaming rig in December but crysis preforms really bad at 1920X1080 on high settings :fou: 
I have the latest drivers available for all of my components and I thought that crysis should run smoother since its from 2007 :ange: 

Here are my specs:
CPU: Athlon x3 450 3.2ghz (unlocked to phenom x4 b50 processor w/ no l3 cache)
RAM: 4GB (2x2GB) Black dragon ram
GFX: Club 3d radeon 6850 1GB
MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-870A-UD3
PSU: Super flower 550w

I am running the game on high at 1080p with aa set to 2x

any advice/tips would be appreciated! Thanks :)

what other games do you play and do you have trouble ?

I play mass effect 2, l4d2, portal and they all run smoothly at 1080p
Crysis is normaly at 25-30 but sometimes it drops down to 17fps
This is the steam version with all the latest patches installed)
BTW I forgot to mention that I am on w7 64 bit edition

It should run fine. I play it at higher res and settings and don't have too many problems..... this is with a 5850. Warhead I get some stuttering when explosions go off.... ( while in vehicles. ) Too much going on for the card to handle. ( regular Crysis is fine for the most part ) The 1gig of vram would be my first guess. I have an older card that's slower but has more ram and have no problems what-so-ever. Not the only game I have problems with using ATI. FarCry2 and NFS Shift give me problems too. I'll be going back to the green team this year. Play with your settings a little.

I can run Crysis all setting on high with 8xaa with next to no shutters en-till i get the the Aircraft carrier part then its unplayable. i have to take down shadows, particles and textures to medium and aa to 4x to get it playable again but it looks like *** compared to high and 8aa.

System

I7 920
Hd 5850 1gb
4 gigs 1600 ram
Gigabyte Ud5-X58
sata 1.5 160gbWD(old dell drive 5 years+)

I am wondering if adding another 4 gigs of ram would allow me to keep those settings on high. Of if 5850 in crossfire is a better option in terms of FPS. I remember some benchmark about adding more system memory to alleviate system shutters in graphics intense games. I have 250$. So i could get another 5850 but i have seen that crysis does not scale as good as other games in crossfire. so would i be better to spend that 250$ on ram, hard drive, and a heat sink? you know improve the overall system rather then just another video card.

Crysis is still pretty demanding. The following are results for Crysis: Warhead with an Intel i7-980 Extreme Edition. Crysis: Warhead is a little less demanding than Crysis.

The 5850 is faster than the 6850, by the way.

I know it is. Kinda like the numbers game they played. Called good marketing.

The only thing that comes to mind is that the processor doesn't have any L3 cache on it. It could be all the swapping that's causing the problem.

My i5 750 at 2.6ghz actually stuttered a lot with crysis at 1080p.When I overclocked it to 3.6ghz it litterally disappeared and I can run it at very high with 4xaa smoothly.That is with my 5850.
Your athlon 2 x3 should be much worse.So,a better cpu or an oc should help the game rum more smoothly.
To clarfy things,I don't mean that your max fps will rise considerably.Your minimum fps will make the difference.

Same thing here. Once I OC'd the my i5 750 to 3.9-4.0 it made a big difference. I also have a 5870 1GB and at 1080p i am getting 40-50 FPS with 2x AA.

i guess you could try turn AA off and/or drop the resolution, if performance doesnt improve much or at all, then you may have a CPU bottleneck.

Turning the AA off will help alot also running at 1920*1080 you dont need AA much.
