An 8800GT is still enough, even in 2011. - Page 2

post #11 of 96
Jeez, lucky you.

I'm lucky if I can get 25 FPS in Crysis2 at low/medium at 1440x900 with my 5850 frown.gif

You need to upgrade that dual-core. BC2 is more processor-heavy than GPU-heavy.

I had a 8800GTS 512 and it served me well, but when I couldn't max the new titles out with loads of AA and everything on while averaging playable FPS I decided to buy a new card.

DX11 offers a lot of other good things though, which more titles will end up taking advantage of, biggest one being tessellation.
Well, maybe I'm just a little different in this regard. I can tolerate lowering settings to an extent - so long as the game looks good.

Crysis 2 does have a lot of motion blur, so that helps with disguising the framerate somewhat. For BC2, perhaps a better processor is necessary to avoid the dips in framerate when smoke is being rendered?

You need to upgrade your GPU because regardless of whether BC2 'is more processor-heavy' you can barely just run it.

Oh. There's not way you should be getting frames like that. Perhaps a driver issue?

Barely? The framerate is pretty good in my eyes, for such an old card. Yeah, AA and HBAO are off, but everything else is set at high. Sure, there are dips, but those are to be expected.

At minimum, it's more than playable. I don't necessarily need an eye-bleeding 60FPS to be satisfied. Or perhaps my standards are lower than your's.

Well see, at first I thought it had something to do with the game itself.

Like the OP, I was rocking the 8000 series for quite some time.

But... when I compared GTA 4 on my SLI 8600's to my single 5850, the results were actually WORSE.
