Hi All,

Below are the stats on my new PC. I am playing Crysis on very high with no anti-aliasing and it's crapping out whenever i get into combat or when moving into new areas. I've patched to the latest and the game can still be choppy.

Any help would be most appreciated!

Thanks,

Caz

1. What size monitor/resolution are you playing at?

2. Is this in Windows XP or Vista, and 32 or 64 bit?

3. Are you running Crysis in DX9 or DX10?

4. What ver. of nvidia drivers are you running?

52" Sharp Aquos 120hz refresh, 1680X1050 - doesn't give me a 1920X1080 option
Vista 32
I believe the latest nvidia drivers... will validate this

Are you running in SLI mode?

I just upgraded to the latest nvidia drivers and yes, I am running SLI.

Maybe I'm missing something here but for 6.5K i figured I could atleast run Crysis on very high without any issues. :-/

Are you running the latest stable drivers or the latest beta? I might try the beta drivers. Also, try turning SLI off (if you're able to) and see how Crysis runs. Are you getting a sort of "speed up" and "slow down" choppiness, or just a generally low (but consistent feeling) FPS rate?

Try your video card manufacturer's drivers. I have an evga 8800 gt and evga's driver gives me almost universally better performance than any of nvidia/nzone's drivers.

Uhh I think its better not to do that, why don't you try the Nvidia beta drivers, I believe its 17X.XX not exactly sure.

I just have to say I got a PC hard-on looking at your stats...

BTW why didn't you go with Ultimate 64bit version. The game runs better on 64 bit version. I read an article on it a while back. Roll your drivers back then try it. put whatever drivers came with the card then try it. those cards are very new and may not have stable support yet.
