That is the problem right there. In order to get the best answer to your problem we have to know:
1) what is your PSU wattage and brand
2) what is the monitor resolution
3) what is your CPU speed

To play Crysis on max you will need the following:

1) A anual salary of atleast £40,000
2)High end x58 Motherboard
3)Core i7 920 D0
4)6GB Triple channel RAM
5)850W PSU - Good quality brand
6)2 x 5970's in CF
7)Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB or Similar speed HDD
8)High end air cooling for Ci7 920
9)Large full tower case.
10)2560 x 1600 res monitor.

In other words, don't base your PC's performance on Crysis, its just one very demanding game. So unless you wipe your back-side with money then don't worry about Crysis.

You forgot 2 SSDs - 1 for the OS and one for Crysis. :kaola:

1. Cpu speed:
- easiest: Start-Run-dxdiag (Show us what does it say at Processor)
- more complicated (more detailed) - download a program named CPU-Z
2. Open your computer case and write down the name and specifications of the PSU.
3. DX10 is not available for XP. You can modify the configuration file of Crysis to run on XP with almost identical settings as on a DX10 capable system.

That is why we need to know what brand and specification your PSU has. The 9800GT uses more power than your 9400GT so that piece of information is very important. If the PSU is of a good brand and has 400W+ then that GPU will be fine and will offer you an increase in resolution as well as game detail. Also please tell us your budget, maybe we can offer you better suggestions than the 9800GT.

You can not upgrade your motherboard to an X58 (s1366) without upgrading your CPU to a Ci7 9xx series and you'll also have to upgrade your RAM to DDR3 Triple channel.

You have a s775 CPU which means you can only buy G31, G41, P31, P43, P45, X48, X38


BTW upgrading your motherboard will not gain you much more performance, i'm talking maybe 1-2FPS more if you brought a X48, obviously not worth it.

No comment. His system is low-mid level. He wants to play Crysis at 1024x768. His system requires a good VGA seeing as his CPU is decent. Your kind of comments don't bring anything even remotely helpful to the conversation, they only show how much of a troll you are.
To the OP, ignore the troll and show us your PSU specs.

I couldn't find anything about that company so I guess the PSU is a no-name. If you can afford get a better PSU (400+ W) from a brand company like Corsair, OCZ, Thermaltake, Antec etc and an ATI 5670 or better 5750. With that you will be able to play Crysis at your resolution with high/very high details.
Changing the motherboard will NOT give you a performance boost.

@Tool316 start your on thread, Don't jack someone elses thread.


Have to agree with dragon, your current PSU isnt good quality so if you can, upgrade to a known brand PSU like the ones dragon mentioned, although I would recommend you go with a quality 500W and a HD5770. But its up to you.

Get a new 450 or 500W PSU from a brand name and one of my suggestions or omgitzfatal ones.

From the best to the lesser powerfull cards suggested:
5770>5750>9800GT>5670. All these cards can be powered by a good 450+W PSU without problems.

Simbadda are a no-name brand. Try to find products from : Corsair, OCZ, Antec, Thermaltake, PC Power&Cooling, Silverstone, Seventeam, etc.

If you get the Corsair PSU and the 9800GT you will play better Crysis without the need to change the motherboard.
