Also, I thought I could disable 2 cores in the BIOS, but I can't find the option.

So I'll be testing my Q6600 at 2.4Ghz,3Ghz,3.6Ghz, and 4Ghz.
Can't you just go to task manager, and set the affinity to core 0 and core 1? that way you disable core 2 and core 3. Just a thought....

The thing that is confusing me, is how does it run fine on 360/ps3 but PC gets destroyed on low settings...

I think something's up with this whole low-graphics thing. Might need a patch maybe?

For an Xbox360, they can optimize it for the exact same CPU and GPU. EVERYONE has that exact same hardware. With the PC, they have to be more flexible and try to optimize it for an infinite amount of PC configs.

If there was a way to optimize PCs as much as console games are, a single GTX 280 could max crysis at 2560x1600 at a constant 60FPS+.

This beast speaks the truth.

Hopefully my setup can run it, I don't care about playing on the lowest quality (it still looks good I hear). I just hope that they release a patch which fixes stuff...

4 hours till release in England... ): Got Vice City for free so I'm gonna play that!
