"Updated all the drivers"
Mean using 8.5?
Apparently they are not all that good - go back to the 8.4's

not to mention the fact that crysis is just a resource hog.

Hi, and welcome to the forums.

Please go here and add your system specs... it makes life easier for us, since we see your specs below every post you make Thanks.

What settings do you use in Crysis? esp. AA screws up frame rates in a major way. Disable AA/AF, and reduce settings a bit.. you're playing at quite a resolution (1920 x 1080), which is a workout even for your cards.
