Windows 7: Crysis is choppy with good comp, and doubling my RAM

It looks good, but it may also be worthwhile checking your mobo for compatibility issues. There shouldn't be any issues, but it always helps to check the mobo model and ram model no's:

ie: Motherboard

Ram
KHX6400D2LLK2/2GN

Just bought Crysis. Hope my comp can handle it better. His cpu was slightly better than mine but my GPU is loads better. Plus ive got the proper RAM!

Honestly most of you guys don't have the specs to run Crysis properly. When people say it's poorly coded that is just an excuse that people use who don't have the specs to play it. Crysis is not poorly coded at all.

I've played through both Crysis and Warhead 30 times plus and the game runs perfectly for me at max settings 1680 with 4XAA. And I never get a single crash or lag.

Anything less than a 200 series GPU, highly overclocked processor with 4GB Ram won't play it very well. The ability to run that game at max settings is the true test of a gaming computer. The game is designed like that on purpose.

Ram is not going to help you play Crysis, get a better videocard.

I played Crysis with 2GB of ram and a overclocked XXX XFX 8600GTS for most of the game, and it worked fine, but with medium and some low settings, using a lower than native resolution and all vsync, AA and all that disabled.

If you could, I'd recommend keeping your current 3GB of ram, or upgrading to 4GB, but main thing would be to get a better graphics card. ur best bet would be soemthing like the 9800GT or GTX, or the ATI 4850. $80-100 for that and you'll be running just fine.

yea chev, it's not poorly coded, but then again it's not coded GREAT either, there's many updates and changes that help the game a huge amount. you have a good system and should be fine on Crysis tho.

Also Chev, I can't PM you for some reason, can u PM me. How does that PC-9600 run on your 780i?? stable. I wann get the OCZ 9600 Low Voltage but not sure my 750i can handle it.

Quite a number of people on these forums have the specs to run and play Crysis.

I'm not sure that I would agree completely with that. While Crysis did/does push a rig pretty darn hard...there are games out now with better graphics that get better frame rates on rigs today.

Again, I'm not in complete agreement here either. I have a quad core (Q9550) with a minor overclock and a GeForce 9800GTX+ (512MB and not overclocked) that runs with almost everything at high at 1920x1080 on my box under 64-bit Windows 7. And back in the day when Crysis was released, these 200 series GPU's didn't even exist.

Static, you'll play it just fine.

Yea Pparks.. I'm not sure about that either. but he does have a point, and the game wasn't designed like that completely on purpose, but it was technically a Next Gen game in a way, they wanted a game that would help cause a fire under Nvidia and ATI to release better cards, instead of every new release being 7-10% improvements.. we want a real upgrade.. and the 9800GT to the GTX 260 was a great upgrade.

Also that quote about anything less than a 200 series, high Oc and 4GB is also right, but wrong. As the person playing and what type a PC is needed also relies on how well the person wants it to play, and what size screen, my neighbor has an old 16" CRT screen, and an old HP PC with a AMD 4800+ and 3GB of ram. I added a 9600 GSO and it plays fine.. but then he has a low resolution.

Anyone with a screen close to mine (24" LCD) will need a 200 series or similar graphics card to play it and enjoy it.. I did used to play Crysis on dual 22's and that was a blast, and my single 260 did ok.

The pc2 9600 runs excellent for me on my 780iFTW board. Makes for a very snappy system and has pretty decent Everest bandwidth test numbers.

I've been helping someone overclock the 750i FTW with a Q6600 and can't seem to run the memory at 1200 if he is over 1400 FSB. It could be a limitation of the CPU he's using but it's hard to tell for sure.

There is also a new bios out that is supposed to help with memory speed for the 750i FTW.

GSkill just came out with some low voltage pc2 9600 of their own. I'm using the higher voltage pc2 9600. You have to know how to use the dividers for these types of memory speeds no doubt.

And yup, Crysis runs very well for me indeed. I don't need to use any of those Crysis game mods either. And that is just using a single GTX280. I'm kinda holding out for the 300 series cards.
