Everything is good minus Vista


Vista isn't too bad - just too resource hungry. With the extra resources, it should be fine. I'll be able to play Crysis (and games on par with it) on the maximum settings with no slowdown, I believe. Am I right?


Crysis 1 - no.
Crysis Warhead - should run in DX9 mode at Enthusiast for you. Frame rate should just be around 30 at this setting. The game will run smooth like butter at Gamer (which is the best setting choice if you ask me, when mixed with some Enthusiast settings as Altis did).

Crysis 1 is a resource hungry biatch that only computers coming out now can realize at the absolute highest settings.

I'll upgrade the graphics card, then. I won't be happy until I have a PC capable of running the original Crysis at max.

You're SOL on that one - the very latest Intel processors can handle everything in Crysis at max DX10 with a frame rate just over 30, but those aren't even out yet. You really shouldn't try to set playing Crysis at the best possible settings as your goal. Warhead on the other hand, you can more than likely play at full settings with an acceptable frame rate. That's what counts. The optimizations may move to Crysis later, according to CryTek.

Crysis is that much of a bitch...? How annoying. I'll stick with the PC is it is, then.

Well it depends. You can probably run it at a mix and match of Very High/High settings with a good frame rate.

And really, that's good enough. Maxing out Crysis is just a frame rate eater and you may not find the difference worth it, you know what I mean? It'll look pretty much just as good and play better with a smoother frame rate on a high/very high mix.

Yeah... It's better than it runs nicely, I think. The more fluid I can get it, the better really. Is it better to play Crysis with the keyboard and mouse or an actual gamepad?

I wish I had a PC even remotely capably of running Crysis

Pentium Dual core 1.6 GHZ (I know now)
Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950
Up to 224 MB of shared video memory (when 512 MB or more system memory present) (its what Gateway says)
2GB ram
Vista, which uses 1GB of the 2GB I have

PC rule of thumb:

FPS, RTS, MMOs (most of 'em, anyway), all better with mouse and keyboard.
Action, Emulation, Adventure, Fighting, generally better with a gamepad (you can actually just use your Sixaxis)
Racing, flight simulation, etc, better with their respective peripherals (wheel, flight pad)

Well yeah, I ordered that Crysis Warhead PC as it's a steal (well, not really, but $700 for an optimized system is good in my book, even if PC prices have dropped a lot).

Core 2 Duo E7300 2.66GHz
2GB DDR2
250GB SATA II HDD
EVGA GeForce 9800 GT 512 GDDR3 (SLI ready, 1 free PCIe slot available)
G31M3-F MoBo
XP Pro SP3

G9 mouse
300GB Maxtor External HDD
Stereo Speakers, 17 inch CRT flat screen(1280x1024) <-- will upgrade these later. For now it's fine.


Does that mobo support SLI?

Edit: It looks like your mobo that was in that Crysis machine only has one PCIex16 1.0 Slot? In order to run SLi, you need a board that supports it (w/ Nvidia Chipsets) as well as two PCIe x16 slots (Version 2.0 preferable).


The 9800 GT is backwards compat w/ PCIe X1 (PCIe 1.0) which the PC has an empty slot open for and it has a PCIe X16 (PCIe 2.0) slot as well (which the 9800 GT is in right now). Yeah it supports SLi, but I probably won't be using the functionality.


Your card requires a PCIe X16 slot, not a PCIe X1. There is a big difference in the two. When I mentioned PCIe X16 2.0, I meant the next version of PCIe x 16 that allows double the bandwidth when compared to PCIe x16. Your card supports it, but your mobo only supports PCIe X16(1.0). The same goes with SLi support. In order to run SLi you need a compliant mobo with a nVidia nForce North Bridge chipset, your MSI board has the Intel G31 Chipset.

By no means am I trying to insult your knowledge, I just wanted to present you with the facts.

This is what I mean. Check the specs.

Yours is pretty close to my laptop, except my laptop has a lot more shared video memory (over twice yours) and my processor runs at 1.73Ghz per core.

It runs faster than just about any other PC I've ever used with Vista.
Even ones with nicer, well, everything

I've noticed that, too, at times... It's weird, isn't it? xD

Oh Corrupt, be sure to pick up DDR2 RAM rather than DDR.

PC6400/800MHz speed is a safe bet for RAM.


Good idea... Completely forgot about the better RAM type.

9.6Ghz processor and 1GB of VRAM? Not too shabby.
