hi friends,, my system configure :

processor - intel core 2 duo e6750 @2.66 ( water cooled)
mobo - Asus p5n e sli
Graphics card - Msi nvidia 260 gtx overclocked batman edition
Ram - 2 gb @ 667
Monitor - Samsung px2370
psu - xfx 850 watts black edition
Hard drive - 250 gb
Dvd rom - Samsung

i have dual boot system,,,, one is windows xp sp3 and another one is windows 7 64 bit sp1
when i run crysis cpu and gpu benchmark i got more fps in xp than windows 7,,,
crysis was patched v 1.2

1680X1050 (WINDOWS 7 64 BIT SP1 ) @ high settings ------- 1680X1050 ( windows xp sp3 ) @ high settings

cpu 1 benchmark
test1 -------------------------20.42 ------------------------------------------------- 37.44
test2--------------------------23.46 ------------------------------------------------- 42.91
test3--------------------------23.07 ------------------------------------------------- 42.35
test4--------------------------22.98 ------------------------------------------------- 42.88

cpu2 benchmark
test1--------------------------12.07--------------------------------------------------- 18.76
test2--------------------------12.19----------------------------------------------------20.38
test3--------------------------13.36----------------------------------------------------19.76
test4--------------------------12.63----------------------------------------------------20.44

gpu benchmark
test1--------------------------22.26----------------------------------------------------38.84
test2--------------------------26.79----------------------------------------------------44.63
test3--------------------------26.96----------------------------------------------------44.81
test4--------------------------27.01----------------------------------------------------44.86

( every driver was up to dated,,, even i formatted my entire hard drive reinstalled the only windows 7 64 bit not sp1,,, then still no improvement)

i can play crysis @ very high settings ( using crysis direct x enable.exe for xp ) but hardly play @ medium settings in windows 7

i tried to play in both 32 and 64 bit in wondows 7,,,, but nothing happend,,,, even i overclocked ram and cpu...but got not so much improvement

i know that windows 7 is the best os for gaming... so i wanted to know where is the fault ?
what changes can make me able to play games in windows 7 ?

Well, xp is for one a lighter OS and for two, 7 might default to dx10 whereas xp might use dx9 by default (even though you say you did the workaround thing.

7 is better, but it needs slightly more overhead (especially true if youve only got 1 or 2 cores - you really need at least 3 to 4 for an acceptable gaming experience...

i think u r right,,, cause i was watching the gpu usage during gameplay ,, in xp the average gpu usage was almost 95%,,,,but in windows 7 was about only 78% and fluctuation level was very high,,, means sometimes it goes below 45 % ,,,but that was not in xp..

according to my mobo processors limitation,, the best cpu i can use is q6600,,
do u think this can help me ?,,,, i can easily overclock it @ 3.6 ghz,,
i can't buy any latest mobo, or latest processor,,(money problem)

thanx

crysis makes big machines cry, so anything free that you can do will have little effect. just of out curiosity, make sure you have crysis listed as a game in the nvidia control panel > adjust 3d settings > program settings, add it if you have to. I did it to BF2bc and it made a huge difference 30fps upto 60fps at same settings.

As 13thmonkey said, make sure you are comparing apples to apples, and by that I mean running Crysis in DX9 on both XP and W7.

Using the settings to do some of the DX10 features on XP, does NOT make it equal to DX10, so compare DX9 scores on both systems.

Unless you can find a Q6600 used, they are extremely expensive.

$180 bucks isn't that bad, especially if you can find a used one for a bit less - and ratchet it up to ~3.8/4Ghz - and it doesnt matter if your choosing dx9 regardless of os - 7 will be a bit slower due to being slightly more demanding.

You'll see a big improvement.

your problem might be that you have 64 bit win 7, 64 bit recommends at least 3 GB RAM for descent performacne, if you have 2 GB of RAM you might as well go for win 7 32 bit, but a RAM upgrade (up to 3 or 4GB) will show great increase in performance on the 64 bit OS.

No it Doesn't and no it wont.

i'm talking about personal experience, I had 2GB and 64 bit win 7 and performance was normal when i added another 2 GB it became faster, and now I added another to (equalling 6GB) it showed little to no difference but I require it.

i'm regularly using between 2 and 3 GB, but rarely above 3GB, so 2 to 3 would be a useful jump, but 3 to 4 not so useful.
