Try Crysis with the highest settings possible.

Also...

GTA IV
ARMA II
Gods of War III
Fallout 3
Metro 2033
Supreme Commander 2
Command and Conquer 4
Just Cause 2

In other words, most of the newer games require rediculous hardware if you set them on very high settings. Many of them have a high variability so that lower end users can play them too. I'd say Crysis is probably the worst of them all but it's a few years old now.

If you're looking to benchmark your system when it comes to video games you can just use 3DMark Vantage.

As far as your system goes, you should be using your GTS 250 as your main graphics card and your onboard graphics as a dedicated physics processor if possible. If you're looking to upgrade, you should look at the following depending on price range.

GTX 260 (896MB, 448-BIT GDDR3) - $200

GTX 470 (1280MB, 320-BIT GDDR5) - $350
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814133318

GTX 480 (1536MB, 384-BIT GDDR5) - $500
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125319

Your current card has 512MB and 256-BIT GDDR3.

You're system is fine....

Crysis is kind of lame in my opinion. Its a good shooter, but fighting aliens just isn't my thing. The floating through water level was one of the stupidest levels of any game I have ever played. GTA IV is my favorite by far. Try that and the new Episodes from Liberty City that was released recently. Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is a good game as well. Fallout 3 was good too.

FYI: God of War III is a playstation 3 game.

No... if you lower the graphic settings, you might get ~20fps or ~30fps...
It can play Crysis, but not at butter smooth 60+fps...

I dunno...my setup (check my specs) runs Crysis at ~45-50fps on medium detail, with no difficulty that I've noticed...

By high, do you mean maxed out? In a word - no.

You will have to dial down settings in a lot of those games to achieve a playable framerate.

But your high OC and lower resolution will help. Unless you plan to game on that 40" TV and it's 1920x1080

Arma II maxed out looks like it's 2004 all over again. even FEAR 2 looks better.
