I was wondering if anyone knew all the settings on cata 8.10 to make the card perform very good in crysis wars.

Im willing to oc the card right now, i got the fan set on 75% fan speed and I already oc it a little.

Right now my resolution is set on 1680 x 1050 and i get a regular fps of 20-30 in multilayer, sometimes "50fps but rarely" so i was wondering is there some tips to make it perform better + make it still look very good.

max out settings, and keep AA around 4xs. The 4870 X2 can do more,

but if you want high frames, and not risk an low 1s. 4x is the safest AA since graphically you can't really tell the difference between it and 16 (unless you try to find problems).

I think thats my save point if I don't like the frames. The X2 can do anything out right now with out really breaking a sweat, except for Stalker and Crysis.

SO really there aint anything for you to worry.

For the game Crysis you'll prob just want to turn shadows to med
or just run in DX 9, it will almost double your frames.

With graphically intense multiplayer games like Crysis wars you need to take network lag into consideration as well, its really hard to judge for that type of game. Thats why I think that Crysis wars will prob not pick up until we see VGAs doing it reliably.

Anyways try DX 9, then try lowering the shadows it should do it for the 4870 X2.
