I have just about everything you do, just different board, RAM config (4x1) and I can play with everything on high, some things on very high, AAX2, and have it be ~30-35 FPS. Try a crysis benchmark tool? What is your 3dmark (just for reference)?

What resolution? What fps? What level of the game?

Even at 16x10, a single G92 will struggle at all high details and no fsaa. Early in the game it should be ok, later in the game, forget it.

This is with 2xaa. But also consider it's a GPU benchmark (timedemo) and real world gameplay would be lower. Notice 21 fps for a single stock clocked G92 GTS. The 9800GTX is barely better.

Yeah, I should've mentioned my res is pretty low, and that I am also very early in the game.

Yeah, I guess that's the problem with crysis on LCD's. Either go below your native res, or tweak settings lower than desired.

I haven't read this yet, but today [H] explores Crysis and they only use fraps real world gaming (no timedemos). The settings they use in some games baffle me (Oblivion no grass but high shadows for example), but at least you can see what they consider playable and their results:
