Crysis is a bit funny when it comes to the graphic options.
If you set everything but shaders to high, you'll probably still get a smooth frame rate. But, everything will look like ass. Well, it still looks quite good, but notwhere near high and that.
The problem is, if you actually look at how the config files work, most of the important stuff is handled by the shaders setting.
If you want Loz, I'll send you a zip of the custom settings I made. You get a game that looks like very high (ish) but has a frame rate of medium.
I can't gaurentee it'll work since I've only got the demo, but I expect everything to be the same.
I lost all intrest in CoD after playing CoD2 that came with my GPU. I tried the demo of CoD4 but it just felt like exactly the same game, only lagged more.
I'd like to stop you from getting gears, but if you've never played it then I'd probably would suggest getting it, since you're after it on PC. You get more single player missions than the 360 version, and you get to use a mouse and keyboard praise the lord!
I recently got bioshock. but only because I had a £20 amazon voucher I had to use by the end of this month, and bioshock had just dropped to that price.
After spending half a day finding out why it wasn't working properly, I finnally got to play it.
I've just finished the camera missions (I'm guessing anyone else who's played will know where I mean) and I'm not enjoying it.
How it got an average score of 97% is beyond me.
I want to get crysis and UT3 but my 7800GT isn't up to the job anymore.
Looking for a 2nd hand (aka cheap) 8800GTX or a new 8800GT. But I've never been good at parting with my money, so don't expect anything soon
