I think the latest 11.4 are the best so far.

BTW I did the rename crysis2.exe to Bioshock and it fixed the slight flickering.

The cards do run hot though when playing crysis2....

Crysis 2 needs a patch to help with crossfire. Most on the time it will run at 99% even with vsync when it doen't need to, But this is what happends when they port a game to pc

No, It needs a real patch. That was some kind of bug fix, Not a fix for crossfire problems.

No, It would auto update. The problem is they just gave us a console port and that never works out right

Thats crap. I hope Crytek take all this negative feedback hanging around and do something about it for Crysis3 if there is one.

The lighting and sound and gameplay is awesome, but the textures and colours even the physics are terrible, so playstation looking.. nothing like a sequel 3 years later to Crysis 1 should look.

Just like MrJack on page 38 i'm looking for some help, So i'm looking to replace my 3 year old PC (See Below!) with something a little newer, eyefinity seems like a neat idea although i think the bezels in anything other than a 3x1 landscape setup would annoy me, i'm also not very technical or lucky and anything i try to put together would quite likely break at my own fault and leave me with nothing so i'm using a website that will if you phone them let you put anything together from their website, they build it in a cable tidy way, give you a 1 year warranty and hopefully its happy ever after. But i wanted to ask a third party which i'm not paying for oppinions on the build idea, if there are any problems and if my future simple upgrade will fit inside the case in advance.

Coolermaster HAF 912 Plus Midi Tower Case
1000W Corsair HX Series Modular ATX2.2 PSU
Intel® 2nd Generation Core™ i5-2500K Processor (they OC this to 4.5ghz for nothing)
Be Quiet! Dark Rock Advanced CPU Cooler
Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound
Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD 6990
MSI P67A-GD55 Intel P67 (REV B3) Socket 1155
1TB Samsung HD103SJ SpinPoint F3 SATA-II
*my other Samsung 1TB HD*
4GB Mushkin Blackline #996659B (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz 9-9-9-24
Sony DVD/RW 24x

the future upgrade that i'm planning to do 6 months down the line when i have a little more money is to add a second 6990 for a bit of life extention when gaming for the future and i'll be relying on whats already in the case to cool everything including the second video card as like i said i'm not tech handy enough to add water cooling or anything later.

Will i go far on that i5 -2500k processor or do i need to get an i7 to not be wasting the other hardware? If theres nothing that anyone can see thats wrong with it it should be about £1261 plus delivery. The last thing i'm absolutely unsure about is monitors for my 3x1 landscape eyefinity setup each time i read an article about monitors it says things such as responce time and color contrast ratios are missleading and that you should get first hand testimonials from people who own the monitors which isnt the easyest thing to do just by browsing the web.

I think i'm looking for suggestions for three 1080p (thin bezel!) monitors with Mini-DisplayPorts to connect to the 6990 right? Thanks for any help in advance.

I have two APPLE 27" LED CINEMA DISPLAYS and they are the main reason that I bought the 6990, because of it's 4 minidisplay ports, which the Apple monitors have built in. I will post no reviews here, but it is common knowledge that these monitors are very pricey, but BEAUTIFUL!!! With the educational discount, you can get them for 950 each. And 1080p is for NVIDIA people. The 6990 is optimized to run at 2560x1600, which the Apple monitors handle beautifully (2560x1440, or 1440p). I say if you are going to shell out close to a grand on a video card (after watercooling, of course), you can shell out on good monitors. For the love of God, please do not get any dell monitors or anything less than 27". Just my
