In the first level of Crysis things are a bit choppy when my FPS is 60+. With the setting below during the GPU benchmark I get minumum FPS 33 & average FPS 65. Currently have 24 hours Orthos & Prime 95 stress tested, very stable system. My CPU benchmark is almost identical to my GPU benchmark around 50+FPS in CPU benchmark. My monitor is very fast response times, never had ghosting problems in the two years I've had it. Can someone tell me in the right order which in-game graphics setting are the most taxing?

[PC spec's]

E6600 @ 3.2GHz
Asus P5E X38
2GB Crucial Ballistix 1066
8800GTX overclocked core 651MHz/Shaders 1525MHz/Memory 2000MHz
Enermax Infiniti 720 Watt PSU

[Ingame settings]

Shaders @ medium
Shadows @ medium
PostProcessingEffects @ low
Everything else @ high
1280x1024 @ 75Hz

i dunno, you shouldn't be having this problem with your setup. Does it seem to you like the type of choppiness that might be associated with a lack of ram? (sudden pauses then sudden return to normal frame rate)

haha, is that a crysis screenshot you've got for a background too?? ;)

I'll take a wild guess and blame your refresh rate! try setting it to the highest possible.. 85?

Damn, how I don't know but one of my PCI-E cables has a short in it. What I do when strange behavior happens is wiggle all my power & data cables and when I wiggled one of my PCI-E cables the video starts to wigg out a little with stange colors. AAAhh time to RMA a PCI-E cable, rare but it does happen. Hope I didn't hurt my 8800GTX. :ouch: 

Now Crysis runs butter smooth using one of my other PCI-E cables. Thanks everyone for your replies.

With Vsync turned off I see 95 FPS with an average of 70+ FPS, but I get image tearing which is a bummer. I wonder when Nvidia will start writing in their graphics drivers for tripple buffering instead of double buffering? I was able the enable this on my 7800GTX 256MB card, without the tripple buffering my FPS in most new games was capped at 39 FPS but with the DXtweaker & NvTray was able to jump past my capped 39 to past 50 FPS.

That tweak doesn't work on 8800 series cards, wonder if Nvidia caught wind about people using it. That tweaker allowed me to put off my upgrade for a hole year, that would hurting Nvidia's sales of all their cards if everyone was using it. Bet thats why Nvidia doesn't bother doing it in their drivers.
