playing crysis is a no go... super lag! maxed out 4AA i get around 15fps when it was normal gameplay was gettting around 50fps then suddenly the super lag! BC2 was fine dirt 2 was fine and metro 2033 was fine maxed out around 45-50 fps but im so annoyed i can't overclock on this tryed everything. Considering selling it only had it a day.
I just finished a week ago Crysis Maximum edition (Crysis+Crysis warhead). I played crysis VERY smoothly using the high (not Very high) settings and when I finished it, I discovered these 2 tweaking guides for Crysis and Crysis warhead...
To make the long story sort, after Crysis, I played Crysis warhead with Enthusiast Gamer settings
and 4X AA (not 8x) and it was extremely smooth as well. Difference between 4x AA and 8X AA is negligible (not visible to me at least)... I haven't overclocked anything (CPU or GPU)!
The only issue that is known in the Crysis world is the last fight you give on the aircraft carrier (in Crysis/not warhead) causes a major Memory leak, but still if you have ~6GB of mem and using the above mentioned guides you will easily be able to go through that level too.
Good luck and... enjoy Crysis!
