    Darn, I gotta put my glasses on before I reply:) Playable sounds like a great result for an 8800gt with all set to max

    Your guys systems must be blessed because mine is only getting around 25 FPS! I am running DX10 1920x1200 no AA in Vista 64 SP1 on "High Settings".

    +1 :D

    Well, I'm getting 30 - 50 FPS on Vista x64, SP1. DirectX 10 version, all settings on high, post processing on medium, 1680x1050. (no AA of course)

    25 fps on "high" with THOSE specs??????

    Even considering your resolution, that's just crazy. Not sure what's up with that, with all settings at "High" using the limited in-game options, Crysis runs as well as Half-Life 1 for me. I don't even bother with the in-game settings, I use much higher quality settings in manual cfg files.....

    I'm not using special config file. Just the basic game and I haven't put on the newest update. Last time I played it was back in late March. I have been waiting until I get a GT200 to finish the game. I just set the settings to "high" and didn't tweak them at all. I always ran the 32 bit executable as I had heard it was faster.

    Could my using USB speakers without a sound card be killing my performance???

    I had always thought that the 8800GT only having 512MB of onboard memory was the problem.

    Would the extra memory width not completely make up for the reduced speed? Also would the increased shaders not help too?

    I'm not sure I believe you.
    I have a friend with an 8800GTS 512 and a Q6600 @ 3.0. He gets an average of 30 FPS in Crysis on the normal "high", at 1680x1050 resolution. No AA, of course. No config files, just in-game settings...

    but gameplay makes the fun more than graphics. so why not 800x600 at 50fps? or less particles, HDR, we all used to enjoy games like that so why cant we all still?
    maybe all those marketing pics is causing brain problems or spoiling us.

    ATM i'm actually having more fun with PSP games and GTA4 than any PC game out, where many would say..."ahh, jaggies" i dont even notice anymore cause i'm concentrating on the game itself.

    it just seems many PC gamers these days are studying graphics as if it was a picture and not really playing it cause its hard to notice Jaggies or 30fps drops when your having fun.

    dont mean to be hyporcritical cause i do enjoy great graphics but i'm just playing the philosipher to offer insight cause i think graphics and genre preferences are hindering our ability to enjoy many more games out there

    since you mentioned those games and graphics, i'd like to take it into another direction for perspective purposes if thats ok

    technically Bioshock,COD4 has alot of static 2d textures, skyboxes...etc. it doesnt have destructable environements or complex physics and is why they run so smooth

    so why do the graphics in these kinds of games get comared to Crysis when it has volumetric clouds, destructable objects...all objects are rendered in full 3d from underwater to sky.
    try "noclip" type mode in most any game and flying around you'll quickly see why Crysis requires so much power.

    i agree however that the gameplay in crysis and its storyline are not fun.

    yep true, look at 9600gt shaders, they're almost as powerful as those from 8800gt and that has 112.. so imagine those 64 in 240 edition plus 512bit memory bus:pc1::pc1: lol, so yes its gonna chew through Crysis or any other gpu demanding game with ease :D

    btw it scores a bit over 7000 in 3Dmark Vantage - Extreme test, so imagine that power, lol 9800gx2 gets ~4000 in the same test :bang:

    I guess I'm guilty as charged. ;) I definitely noticed that I'm starting to look more and more how the graphics look like and not how the game itself is, which can totally ruin your gaming experience. On the other hand it's just incredible how stunningly good the latest games (Crysis, CoD4, Assassin's Creed, Grid, etc.) look like. It's hard not to sit there and to look at the graphics and not getting annoyed by stutters and jaggies, since they do disturb your viewing pleasure. ;)

    I want good graphics and good game play. If the graphics bog down my system I simply upgrade my system or wait until a new card comes out and play the game then. Then I can enjoy the game for it's good game play and also have awesome graphics. :)

    Mostly everything you hear now is irrelevant as the actual cards aren't announced yet. The new cards are likely based on the G8x architecture and as such will have different clock domains. It doesn't make sense for Nvidia to drastically change that back to the same core and shader clocks of pre-G7x cards.

    It is a Gt200 core. Developed of the G92 core.

    So esentially its a G92.

    And yes it is announced lol....havnt you been reading??

    I'm not sure where you are getting your info that this is basically a G92 but that's not correct as far as I understand. I would like to see some proof either way if anyone can find a good link.

    EDIT:
    Definitely a beast all it's own.
