Frustrating having a beta version and the launch version run, minus bugs of the launch version, but after a patch nothing you do can get the game to run at all.
I actually think your cpu will have a big effect.When I changed from the e8500 to the 2500k, the difference was profound. The gpu was 460 sli at the time. While the e8400 is still very good for many games, it can be brought to its knees by something like skyrim or crysis.
Both were overclocked.
However crysis 2 could just have been buggy as well. If u can hold out for haswell, that upgrade will be fun
