Question about gun battles & CPU - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Where has this thread gone???????

Ok look. If you had an i5 2400, you MIGHT be CPU limited.

The 60 FPS difference could be coming from poor drivers. If not, then it is some SOFTWARE related issue.

Now there is an off chance that you are overloading the GPU vram, but unless you are running a high res monitor or multiple monitors, I doubt that would happen.

As far as hardware goes, you could either go with SSDs, or if you already have an SSD, you could sell off your 8GB of ram and get 32. Then you can make a 24GB Ram drive that you could store crysis 2 on.

By having the game files on the ram, your CPU can take better advantage of them. Normally this would result in like a 2FPS gain......if that. But it may do something for you. I doubt it.....but who knows. Like I already said, I am fairly sure that your problem is software related.

Oh I can get 120 frames and 90 in battles but at times my frames can drop to 60 . All I wanted to know is , what stresses my PC the most in gun battles thumb.gif

By then I will sell my GTX 680s for the new 700s - motherboard quality can add more performance right even if its little gain ?

Crysis is poorly coded so even going to a K and overclocking isn't going to add that much fps. How is your gameplay now? Smooth? Any hiccups?

It used to matter, but now it is not really enough to be noticeable, although in theory a new architecture could change that.

I now question if my GTX680 sli investment is pointless . Spending money on hardware for poorly developed gaming software . The only game that seemed to use Sli strengths was Metro 2033 . The i7 3770 works great when producing music so I am satisfied with the CPU investment .
