I've been watching youtube videos of crysis gameplay and noticed that even with some nice systems, the gameplay was a little choppy (like mine). I'd like to know what I should add/replace to my system to be able to play it with absolutely no choppyness or lag whatsoever. My current setup is:

ASUS M2N-32 SLI Deluxe (wireless edition) Motherboard AMD Athlon 64 4600 Dual Core 4 gigs RAM Geforce 7600GT 256 video Samsung 1920 x 1200 60 Hz Monitor DirectX 10 Vista 64-bit (I threw in the monitor because I'd also like to play at high resolution.) So what do I need? How many fps is considered smooth? Cheers.

15 FPS is smooth for Crysis. My specs;

8800 GT 512 MB Point of View(The brand) Intel Core 2 QuadCore Q6600 2.39 Ghz 2 GB Ram

and i run Vista. On High(With Physics and Post Processing on Very High), i get an average of 25 FPS. A 280 is pretty expensive, while you can get a 8800GT cheap.(From what i've experienced, Point of View is pretty good. It's Optimal Setting for Crysis was everything on Very High at 800x600. I tested it, and got a nice 15 FPS at it. However, i prefer playing at 1680x1050)

15 fps? Are you sure? I thought 30 or more was the standard for "lifelike" appearance.

No computer can achieve 30 FPS on Very High in Crysis at a native resolution :D

sure they can its all a matter of how much money do they want to shell out, I'm sure 2 nvidia 280's in sli could handle it. really the only thing holding you back is you graphics card though some of the other member could help you out better then i can.

Also it might help if we could see how big your power supply is.

I'm pretty sure it's 450 Watts. I've been looking at the nvidia280 - I think I'll be snagging one of em'.

OK, so why is there there the same card with different manufacturer's names on it for different prices??? (found at my local store) They also have eVGA (not shown) for $527 or $599 [COLOR=darkorange]hXXp://www.pccyber.com/?v=Category&SearchField=text&SearchText=gtx280[/COLOR]

don't rate a system by crysis requirements. The game itself is realistic, sure, but just as realistic as games such as call of duty 4 and others that are far better made.

The games engine wasn't optimized enough for the amount of physics it generated on screen at any given time. (this is called craptastic coding) So, unless you're on some stupid level of power in a system, you won't be able to run it properly max settings. (when it comes to hardcore gaming, is there any other level?)

To me, asking about a system that can run crysis well is like asking what would run a decent game with a huge memory leak and saying just add more memory when the real solution is either use a different game as a benchmark or wait for the developers to actually release a patch for the game that fixes its bugs that cause it to have such steep requirements. (The fix now, patch later concept that publishers have used for over a decade now to maximize profits to get you to buy the game even though it was never finished)

Sure, I'm probably just bitter from seeing how things are run in this industry by people that have no place being in this industry and are trying tactics that don't mesh with the way the gaming community is. But using just one game as a benchmark to build a system, especially a crappy game like crysis (it's true, sorry.), isn't something that I would suggest.

Think of the games you play the most, the top 3-4 of varying types of playstyles. (an rts game, an rpg, etc..) and look up reviews on other websites to find out how well the games ran under the hardware you're looking at. Sure, it sounds like a lot of work, but in the end you get the best bang for your buck and come out more satisfied knowing you've invested a great deal into the system and know pretty much how every component works and well it will work in varying games.
