I'm unfamiliar with the ATI 8700, I would try the Windows 7 WHQL drivers and see if that fixes your problem. Or try running Crysis in compatibility mode.

I think it will, try it out and let me know!

32 bit
Drivers & Tools | GAME.AMD.COM
64 bit
Drivers & Tools | GAME.AMD.COM

It's the second download (it says Windows 7 WHQL) and it's ~100 MB

Morning fakeasdf
any body told you, you're a genius? installed the drives as per your suggestion worked perfectly
Many Thanks.
Win 7 seems to be pretty good so far runs well and quicker than Vista.
we just need a few more antivirus comps to produce a win 7 compatible version thats not cpu hungry.
any body heard what the release price will be?
