Thx for help, much appreciated

More about : run crysis

July 14, 2008 1:40:22 PM

Every system runs Crysis. It all depends on your expectations.
Assuming you're keeping all other settings on high (not very high), you should get something like 20fps.

ok then, i meant on high then lol and on the posted resolution also 12xx*10xx.

really? only 20 fps >.>
July 14, 2008 1:55:58 PM

ur cpu is a huge bottleneck. u should oc it atleast to 2.5ghz or buy a cheap amd x2 5000+ black edition and oc it. i dont no about 20fps but its possible because ur playing on a lower resolution with a low end cpu.
July 14, 2008 1:58:43 PM

I doubt if u will even get 20fps with that config.. My config gives me barely 18fps with all settings high!! Anyways, ur config is different, and Crysis is a very demanding game.. OC ur graphics card first, and then ur CPU.. Although ur CPU wud still be ur bottleneck!
July 14, 2008 2:03:30 PM

You're going to need a decent CPU - is yours an x2 4000+ or just one of the 4000+? If it's either i'd recommend upgrading to something like an Intel E8400 or a Q6600.
July 14, 2008 2:28:05 PM

Also suggesting to upgrade your CPU. A 5000+ BE is really cheap, and out-of-the-box put the multiplier to X15.5 and you got 3.1 GHz for 60-80$

Your 4850 video card should be sufficient to play decently, as you are only at 12x10 res, maybe overclock it a bit.

No offense, but spending $100's to play a $45 game that doesn't run that great on any hardware is kind of a negative check in my books. Yeah, I would expect top-end hardware to run it well (which it doesn't) but the idea of waiting 2 years for that to be a reality is somewhat pointless. I'm pretty sure there are reasons they have abandoned working on updates/patches for Crysis and are focusing on the next release.
July 14, 2008 2:58:03 PM

It should run fairly well except that the CPU will be a significant bottleneck.

Nothing runs Crysis to the level you'd want, and frankly you shouldn't be wasting time or money fretting about a "game" that's nothing more than a tech demo of cutting-edge graphics technology.

I never thought we'd have another Doom 3 so soon...
July 14, 2008 3:39:59 PM

My 3850 does 40ish fps on med at 1440x900.

2Gb DDR
X2 3800 @ 2.35GHz
July 14, 2008 3:42:35 PM

The cpu is a x2 so that means its dual core - i think...

neways yea i was deff thinkin of ocin the cpu at least. I am always willing to reduce some graphic settings. But will the cpu really bottleneck it that much?? i heard that the cpu was not as important in crysis not very high just high with a few on medium i suppose

Agreed. However, I have found that playing Doom3 now proves to be more fun with everything cranked up as opposed when I ran it with my single core P4 and my 6800GT. Plus, it doesn't 'hitch' when you come to a door when a monster is hiding behind it...which made it less jolting because you knew it was coming...try playing it at night (or Resurrection of Evil as well)...really gets you jumping at times.

Its sad that a 4 year old game now is able to be played on ultra settings and looks like it should have in it's prime...

You could make that argument about any game/software. What you are saying does make sense, but you are assuming the only thing he will be doing is playing Crysis. It is not as though the hardware he is investing in will only work with Crysis, it will work with every other game and software too.

I love how everyone wants to have a computer that can play Crysis. Crysis is the most demanding game you can run now, but it also happens to not be a very enjoyable game.

Me: Hey how's your new system running?
Friend: Great! I can finally play Crysis!
Me: Cool cool, having fun?
Friend: No not really, but check out the detail on this grass!
July 14, 2008 4:52:35 PM

I'm quite sure you'll be able to run Crysis at 1280X1024 with decent frame rate
My single core Intel P4 3.06 GHz was not a bottleneck

On the other hand I consider Doom3 and Crysis are biggest failure
Cause on time of release we had to play them on lowest resolution with no AA and nothing
And after few years hardware appeared and to be frank I tried to play Crysis again but after 15 minutes I felt boring and had to quit
July 14, 2008 5:11:11 PM

Do i rlly need more ram??? i mean 2 gb has been good for me for a long time. And I have more ram then the recommended for crysis.

I want to be able to play crysis so i know i can play far cry2, which i think will use the same engine. Then i will be able to play games for a while i think.

Farcry2 will be amazing!

yes it would with 1280*1024 or something around there with medium high settings with smooth play most of the time. It also depends on the which level of the game you are playing on. There are also many tweaks available for crysis to get better fps some work some don't so just try them out and find one you like. I am running on a system similar to your's. An e6750 intel dual core at 2.66ghz is a bit faster and a xfx 8800gts 512mb which is on par with 4850 running on high settings with a constant 35-40fps and will never go below 30 even during the most intense parts of the game.
Good luck!!!

The HD 4850 is significantly faster than the 8800 GTS 512. The HD 4850 performs with the 9800 GTX if I am not mistaken.
July 14, 2008 5:38:41 PM

Lol, you guys are haters......Crysis kicked ass, and doom was pretty fun....you play doom in the dark in the middle of the night, and it gave you exactly what you paid for.....as for crysis....if you can't run it, don't complain, it just means your computer can't run it.....it's not the games fault....hell, we should all go back to playing quake 1....we can run it at 1000fps....why advance technology when we can stagnate it for the rest of the whining populace.
July 14, 2008 5:51:59 PM

Buy the HIS HD 4850 just for the screwdriver. :D

not true. i have a similar configuration but with an athlon x2 @ 2.2Ghz and i can get a very playable fps running everything on high at 1680x1050.

@modtech: thats exactly what i did :D 
July 14, 2008 6:22:37 PM

Thx for replies everyone. I got the ASUS hd 4850 not the his lol no need for a screwdriver xD
July 14, 2008 6:52:12 PM

4600X2 amd here with 6 gigs of cheap 800mhz ddr2 ram, winx64 and um 9600GT 512

i can play crysis on high at 1024x768 with the high quality mod, it ranges from 20fps to 40 in some parts


good enough for me to enjoy the game Oo
July 14, 2008 7:16:22 PM

yea it can but slowly
July 14, 2008 7:27:13 PM

I have to ask a stupid question - which might not be stupid - o who cares!

IceCold's mobo is SLI? YES?
So - here is my question - will an SLI board use an ATI card????

(Please don't yell at me :) :)  I should know this!) :) :) 
July 14, 2008 7:32:48 PM

And perhaps a better question.

Some peeps are recommending the amd5000x2BlackEdition.
BUT
Is anyone running Crysis using an amd4850e (45watts-low power)? It already runs at 2500ish clock - is there a penalty in performance for the 45watt unit?

I think it makes sense to save on the hydro bill - but I wonder about performance capabilities.

Yes it will but only one card
I have Asus Rampage Formula which has X48 chipset and it means only accepts 2 ATI card in CrossFire
I'm running now one nVidia card 8800GTS(512) with no problem at all
My advice: Stay away from mobos with nForce chipset
Go for X48 or P45 chipset mobo
July 14, 2008 7:44:58 PM

yeah it will run
July 14, 2008 8:23:32 PM

Thx kad

His mobo spec states it has 2 PCIe x16 - so one card only makes sense - I knew that - cos PCIe x16 is a standard - doh!

His mobo also states it will "run" the latest AM2+ cpu's
BUT
the HT3 (AM2+) will downgrade to HT1 (AM2) speed - but that's not really an issue here since he is talking AMD dualcore anyway which is AM2 (HT1) and not AM2+ (HT3). I think that's clear enough.

It's an interesting board for probably cheap price; although not really futureproof - if there is such a thing. (I hope I am not complicating things - really just trying to clarify the position of that board.)

(I also suspect we are dealing with a barebones kit; and it's good to ask questions about those.)

Looks like you are good to go IceCold. :)

@ Drumr
RE: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/CRIPPLE-IT/referre...
(not reccomended)

I attempted to quote your post and this applet seems to want to run on "quote". Even tho it is properly "digitally signed" and "verified" by windoze.
(Recently a friend got an error msg from windoze stating that 'windoze could not find drive C' - a classic case - 'windoze can't find it's a$$) :) 

Anyway -
I already ran it - and it accurately analyzed my current pc - and told me what I already know.
NAMELY - that my current pc is a POS, and fails miserably in most areas. That's why I am here, basically planning my next pc.

But the applet only states minimum requirements - and most of us want more than that - esp. w Crysis. I am sure somebody made advertise dollars somewhere.

Couldn't agree more, Doom III etc isn't the prettiest, but it deffinetly was a huge step forward from doom II , you don't always have to buy a game when it's 45 US! The story line was gory, and I liked it. I guess it's a matter of tastes. Also Half life 2 was much prettier than Doom3, but still.

It wasn't too long ago, that I was playing Doom3 , Half Life 2, Quake 4. On my old rig:

Intel Celeron D 2,66ghz
Geforce 6600GT AGP
2 gb DDR 400!!!! :p 

And I played half life 2 on 1280x1024 highest details and 2x AA !!! at a stable 40fps !
And Quake 4 and Doom 3 @ 1024x756 with 2x AA at steady 30-35FPS! Med details

It wasn't super pretty, but it was still very nice for my old rig.
Crankin up everything to the MAX is not wise, 16xAA and 8xAA is overkill anyway. Anisotropic filtering is important though. It gives the details of objects much sharper.
December 5, 2008 1:06:55 PM

ok so my new rig im building should do very well in crysis right?
my system:
gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R
160 gig hdd
2.53 core 2 duo
Acrtic cooler 7 pro
2 gig 1066 ram
evga geforce 9800gt 512 mb
500 watt altec psu
20x cd/dvd burner
