ATI best Crysis PC how to play at full potential / max fps

Hi, I'm building a new pc and I'm getting a 26" LCD monitor (resolution 1980? x 1280), windows 7 64-bit (or vista 64-bit) and I want to know how well or how much FPS do you think I can get in Crysis using:

1. Phenom II X4 965 BE PCU
2. Radeon Evergreen 5xxx series GPU (1 or 2x using crossfirex)
3. Crysis 64-bit
4. Crysis max graphics settings

I want to get 60fps (AT LEAST) but I'd like to get more if possible.

  1. Your not gonna get 60 on any rig.
  2. That has been said 2 years ago and is very untrue, I've seen people get 60, even 80 at most. If I crossfire 2 Radeon 5xxx's and throw in a Phenom II 965BE I should be getting some pretty good fps. Also directx 11 should give some good assistance =]
  3. How are we going to tell you how many frames per second you can expect with hardware this is not out yet? And on top of that you have a the variable of 1 or 2 gpus.. You're going to wait a bit to see.
  4. There is no point in building a rig for the sole purpose of playing Crysis with all the settings maxed out... You should be more inclined to build a rig that will play any game at any setting and still be able to get playable FPS... The game is just a CPU and GPU hog, just like GTA4....You need about 4k to get a system that can tame such games and still you will see a bit of lag every now n then regardless...

    Yea I can get 80FPS in Crysis too, but once I enable full xAA the FPS will drop to about 20.... ;)

    Once the next-gen cards drop we will be able to see how many more frames we can get at such high detail levels...
  6. core i7 + 2 4890s in crossfire will do the most damage - though like the others, i agree you should not build a rig based on maxing out crysis so your e peen will be 1 inch longer.
  7. Xeon W5580 overclocked to 5.2Ghz and Tri-285's will do the most damage ATM.....

    Did I say I was building a rig JUST for crysis??? I'm also going to be playing Fear, Fear2, X3 Terran Conflict, Doom4 (when it comes out =]) I just want to know how good this will be for crysis because I want to play it too but I wanna get pretty good gameplay. And lol are you serious 4k? Get real, why throw money away for Geforce and intel's small improvements? Why would I buy a 1k processor when I can get an amd 965BE for 1/4 the price and very close performence, more overclockability, and buy 2 R800 graphics cards and still have money left over. Look at benchmark tests, geforce and i7 aren't worth the price.

    @someguy7: Taking a look at older radeon models and making an estimate based on their average improvements or if you have the newest radeon products and you play crysis, maybe you can share some of your fps info and again estimate the improvement.
  9. First of all you never stated any game other than Crysis.... Second, just cause someone is spending 4k for a system does not mean they are throwing away any money... If you have the cash and you want a Super-Computer that is what you will have to spend. Third, I never said you have to buy a G-force based card and spend 1K on a CPU, I was giving you an example of what people are using to get the highest benching scores. Forth, you DO NOT know how the 5XXX series will perform since the card has not been released nor tested in such conditions, so you cannot assume anything until there is concrete proof. And last but not least if you go on you tube there is a user by the name of "Maxishine" that can school you as far as what is needed ATM to get the highest frames possible in Crysis/Warhead using Nvidia/Intel hardware and trust me money is not an obstacle, he will spend whatever to get the job done....

    You want 60 FPS? Until the next-gen cards drop, your PC will have to look similar to this :

  10. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CrglUR7Leo

    This guy is playing at high settings at 1920x1080, with a few mods and with 8xaa on. His getting about 30fps.

    the ati 5870 is probably only going to be 50% faster than a 4870. some of the rumors say it will do 1.5 teraflops whereas the 4870 does 1 teraflops.
  11. Wait two weeks, when the HD 5xxx series is out, ask again. Until then, NO ONE KNOWS!!!!

    meh, gaming wouldn't matter too much, though the XEON would be impressive if at those speeds

    better would be use a server board with 18 DDR3 slots (for 144GB memory) and just have crysis in your memory while you play, can you say next to no load times

    Imagine that, running Crysis with all that RAM, would be nice to see some Benchmarks using something more updated then the Skulltrail......Something that can hold dual Xeon Nahalem's and dual 5870's in xfire... :o
  14. why the 965? get the 955 BE and OC it, same OCability as 965
  15. If you want to play Crysis maxed out at consistently over 60fps then I'd recommend:

    i9 995 overclocked to 5.5GHz (watercooled)
    24GB DDR3 2100MHz RAM in triple channel
    3x GTX485 in Tri SLI
    1x GTX 285 for PhysX processing

    Fast SLC-based SSD for the game drive would help too.

    i.e. the hardware to do it doesn't exist, so you'll just have to wait a few more years.
  16. or ask andre yang for help or vince(kingpin)
  17. ddr3 2100 mhz does exist

    SUPERMICRO MBD-X8DAH+-F-O

    intel 5520 chipset supports crossfire

    with 144GB of ram you could use some of it and make a ramdisk out of it and put some games on it (just make sure the program/driver you get supports auto backup and restore on boot and shutdown)

    well you'd have score least 30k+ on 3dmark06 to run crysis maxed on 1920x1200 wouldn you

    the PII's don't have enough HT links for dual socket (let alone 4 socket)

    its either XEON or Opteron for dual socket (unless you count the 4x4 with 2 fx-7x series amd processors)

    Yea, 19 Ram slots.... that is nuts, you end up paying more in RAM then what the board costs.....

    way more, i think to fill it with 24GB(3x8Gb) sets you would spend almost $10k in memory (like $1660 per set)

    EDIT: i fixed your 19 slots to 18
  25. thats a lot
  26. if you never turn your pc off you'd have ssd like ram level loading would be fast

    there are some programs/drivers that when shutdown is suppose to happen they save the info and at boot re load it
  28. i wanna play solitaire on a system like that
  29. If you've seen systems running Crysis at 60 to 80 FPS, then build that system for yourself...why ask the rest of us for an opinion about something you already know about... You should use Win8 for the OS...

    I'd want to use the calculator on a system like that.

    Yes, exactly.
  32. Lol you say you have seen people play crysis completely maxed out at over 60 fps? Homie please......yeah you can average 60-80 fps on crysis but not with EVERYTHING maxed out, i have seen people with i7's overclocked to well over 4.2 ghz and 2 gtx295 in quad sli as well as ssd boot drives and they still could not average those kinds of frames once AA was turned on max as well as all other options, i have seen people use the 955 be overlocked like crazy and 2 radeon 4890's and they failed too heck i have seen people use three gtx 285 in tri sli and they still could not average those kinds of frame rates once everything was completely turned on yes it is possible to play crysis at insane frame rates with almost everything maxed out and even play it failry well with AA turned on but averaging 60-80 fps with AA and everything turned on and maxed out is unrealistic and i don't think the 5xxx series cards or i5's would change that At least not now maybe in the future with newer technologies but not now
  33. Who knows, I think it is possible with 2x 5870's in cross-fire.... we will have to wait n see...

    Not sure of the reliability of the sources, but a few places have put up info in the past couple days saying the official spec for the 5870 is 2.72 TFlops.

    There's also a thread over in the Graphics Cards (LINKY) that says a 5870 running Crysis at 1920x1200, 4AA, +16 AF, DX10, Very High Graphics was getting minimum 30, average 43 with a slight overclock.

    If all this is true, then it should be able to just just about fine with anything coming down the pipe any time soon.

    Although ram is like many times faster than ssds. :o
  36. Yeh,

    RAM is volatile memory. SSDs are not.

    i have the amd 965 oc to 3710 and the asus hd 5870 and 8g ddr2 hyper x and iam getting 40-90fps in crysis on high using 4 times aa

    I somehow agree, coz this thread is all about playing Crysis with settings all maxed out at its very highest resolution the game supports or
    your lcd monitor can support. PLUS, the FSAA and AA all maxed out too (AA 16X / FSAA 4x), then play it on (for example, 1920 x 1200 resolution)
    and they'll get?.. With this settings and resolution on an GTX295 video card?.. only 20.3FPS how about 2 GTX295 on SLI mode? 45.6 FPS only.
    How about the 5870?.. On these settings?. 29.3FPS, for more info on these FPS, i found this helpful.

    Note: This was tested on Crysis Warhead the "Not so FPS monger" sequel to the "FPS monger" orig Crysis game which if they use it
    to benchmark these cards on all max settings, will surely perform much more poorer.

    Thanks

    anyway Crysis can never be maxed out and get over 60 fps......atleast not for a few years down the road
  40. True. I can get 60FPS or better at almost all times at 1920x1200 very high 2xAA w/ Vsync though.
  41. WTF?

    DO NOT BRING UP DEAD THREADS
  42. You'd think someone with that post count'd know better...
