Hi guys,

Im abit of a noob so be patient.

I just put a gigabyte HD4870 in my machine (abit of an upgrade from my 9500gt)

The deal that my factory o/c 9500gt ran crysis on high settings, was a little jumpy, but pretty good.

I was looking for a massive improvement with the HD4870, and i seems to play smoother and cut scenes bettter, but i cant get the settiings onto 'very high'?

Do i need to o/c my card or is there some other way to achieve this??

Not to keen on overclocking untill i get more confident with it

Cheers

what resolution are you playing on?Up to 1280(and perhaps 1440) you should be able to play on very high(depending on your CPU power)...For higher resolutions you need more powerfull GPU.

I would overclock your cpu if you can and yes definetely overclock your video card also. I dont know if you will the acheive highest setting with just one card you probably would have with two of them but there will be some improvments.

I know what you mean but thats a tough getting them high settings on that crysis game. You have a decent card. Will that e5300 cpu even clock that high it may not.

im using xp, do i need vista or 7? DX10....

From what ive read online and in the mags the e5300 is very overclockable. One of the sites i saw pushed it up to 4ghz on the stock cooler (pushing the limits mind you). As far as i can tell 3.3 is a stable amount.

It is possible to use the 'very high' setting on XP but you will have to make a couple of changes to a config file, Google it.
