Do you have any other screens you can hook up to your pc? I can just have task manager open on it, But I have a logitech G15 that lets me see my cpu and everything else going on with my pc.

No, just a single monitor.

Crysis acts funny sometimes and refuses to alt tab to the dash, etc. So I caught it just right last time before it throttled down.

I don't think you can go by what it shows after you alt tab. It will normally jump up when you do that when play a game. Having a 2nd screen of any kind will really help out, So you can see it in real time.

I get like 10-20 fps increase sometimes going from very high to high or medium (different IQ settings). Something IS up.

Nice system name .

Haha thanks! I actually dealt with migraines my whole life. This CPU tops it. Once I get everything running correctly I know I will feel good though.

It seems adding a second card is giving me a 50% boost as opposed to benchs and finding everywhere showing more around 90 ish.


26 FPS then 39. Only 50% increase. I also need to mention both GPUs are running 95+%

Do you think something is going on with the PCI-E slots im plugged into? Is one card running at 8x speed and the other @ 16x

Your motherboard runs @8x-8x with 2 cards. I really don't think you have any problems, The Crysis games are just very badly made.

Im running down a dirt road and getting 58-60 FPS constant with GPU 1 and 2 usage @ 95% or better. I look off to the enemy encampment and I get 50 FPS with GPU usage @ 88-90 each. I look through my scope and get 38-40 FPS with 80% GPU usage each.

Im not the smartest guy, but thats telling me I CAN get 60 FPS but my GPUs for some reason or the other are just saying **** it.

Are two posts really necessary?
