    You're going to want to use the new 169.01 drivers, they're optimized specifically for Crysis. Using anything older is just stupid.

    Maybe 163.75 gives him better IQ or fps in all his other games than the 169.01 do..? Those 169.01 drivers were making my UT3 demo stutter on max settings, I reverted back to the 163.75's and lo and behold, no stutter, When my Crysis demo has downlaoded, I'll see if I crah too using the 163.75's, because I have found them to be very stable..

    i don't know if this might help but during that scene hit alt+enter to window the game. Finish the scene and then alt-enter again.
    That worked for me.
    Also while you've got it windowed make sure your build says oct 18 and not oct 22.

    169.01 SUCK! I reverted back to 163.76, ran the Crysis built in GPU benchmark, went from 17.93 FPS average before to 26.76 FPS with the older drivers.

    Oh and I'm able to overclock again too.

    So screw 169.01.

    I am running the 158.22 drivers and it works pretty good except for a few things here and there in cyrsis but it doesn't crash, plays really nice. Also where did you find the GPU benchmark in the game . I don't see it.

    In an interview with the game developers that I read somewhere, they claimed Crysis will be the best looknig game for a couple of years, they want new hardware (graphics cards) to mature around it I think, I believe they also said the full potential of the game engine won't be seen until more powerful hardware comes out to utilise it.. :S

    All of the above is just from memory, but I honestly remember reading that somewhere :)

    P.S. With the 163.75s under Vista X64 Home Premium, I can run the Crysis Demo in Direct X 10 on all High settings, not Very high (haven't tried any yet) at 1680x1050 but without AA (jaggies aren't really noticable in Crysis with the motion blur at that resolution..) And it is smooth too, with no fps dips as far as I can tell..

    Also in response to another post asking the same question, how do you access the Benchmark??

    To access the benchmarks: Go to your game folder and then into the Bin32 or Bin64 folder. there you'll find 2 .bat files named Benchmark_CPU and Benchmark_GPU. Just click away...

    Well so why they decide to put out NOW the game when just a few people in the world can play it at very high details? it's just crazy...

    How many people have 2 8800 ultra in sli for crysis? do yuo think that this 2 cards can run the game at 60fps? i don't think so.... :) it's ridicolus...

    I just tried the demo again and the problem with the crash was the AF at 16x i turned off and it's ok now... but i can play the game at 1280x1024 (All High) with AA 2x but it don't run very smooth... in Medium it's better... but i really don't like the game at this detail...

    About time i say.

    and my frame rate is fine no AA on and a mix of med and high settings whats wrong with this screenshot?

    i guess my eyes would have to be 2 inches off the screen to pick at the jaggies that are barely noticeable while playing.

    im afraid that even the top systems are going to struggle a bit with crysis,

    seems that its aimed at unreleased hardware for max performance? which is a bit of a shot in the foot as maybe that will hit sales, taking into consideration that there is no planned release of top spec cards as yet?

    if your on lower 8800 cards gonna definatly hard to scale well down for smooth gameplay, which is annoying

    169.01 are sucky, it lowered my 3dmark score under 10000 grrrrrr. but crysis runs ok on high settings and in 1680x1050 with some AA.

    Your correct, but I didn't read it, it was in one of the video interviews that was done with the developer. I remember seeing it at Game Trailers.

    I'm no tech wizard, or the sharpest needle in the haystack. But, I remember the 1st time I saw the actual in game video's. I thought, dam your are going to need some serious hardware to run graphics like that. Which is the case, as everybody is finding out. My 8800GTX purchased at the time was purely to max out my then current DX9 games. I had a gut feeling that in wasn't really going to be able to run the new DX10 games on max settings. We are just going to have to wait for the next gen high graphics card.

    On a different note. How or why does this game run better under 30 FPS, while other games would run really bad, like a slide show?
