I knew you loved Crysis.

Isn't there never going to be proper quad sli support on xp anyway? Vista only?

There is no way in hell anyone in there right mind would spend 1200+ $ on video cards that can hardly hold 40FPS in a video game. I could care less that they have AA on and are runing at a crazy RES, There should be a much bigger performance gap than this between the 9xxxx and the 8xxx.

I'm not upgrading tell I see a jump like there was from the 79xx to the 88xx cards.

Nvidia is weak.
Foxsmash and Johnny look at the crysis benchmark thread, Johnny "nvidia is week" OK you show me another card that performs better and Ill buy it!

Nope, apparently its not because they choose not to, there is actually some limitation in xp that prevents it.

Quad sli is a waste of money anyways, I seriously don't know why people use Crysis as a reason to upgrade. I uninstalled the game after about 5 minutes of playing it. The gameplay is so bland and boring like farcry except worse and the graphics are well over rated. IMHO Assassins Creed has way better graphics than Crysis yet Assassins Creed runs about 10X better.

Upgrade to a decent computer and you would be singing a different tune. Crysis absolutely owns any game out on High or better in the settings. If you dont believe me, upgrade your CPU and find it out for yourself. Anyone who says otherwise doesnt have the processing nvts to handle it

Crysis may LOOK better than any other game out there but it certainly doesn't PLAY better than any game out there.

I still think it's funny that quad sli 9800GX2 is just slightly better than tri sli 8800Ultra, though I wish they had done tri 8800GTX so you could see that difference better, especially since you can get 8800GTX for a whole lot less (I see them around 330-340 now).

My computer is good enough, and you should know by now that cpu doesn't matter in Crysis (or any other games for that matter) unless you are playing at 1024*768 with medium settings or lower. I play at 1600*1200 with a very high config and I get 25fps average so performance isn't a problem. http://www.gamespot.com/features/6182806/p-6.html
Im just saying that the game is extremely boring, its always go from point a to point b and the optimization is a joke.
