Strange, I was in the same boat (Core 2 Duo, GeForce 8800 GTX, 8GB RAM) when I first played Crysis and it ran well. Sure, I had to drop the resolution because the native resolution of my display (2560x1600) would be too slow, but I recall it running just fine at 1280x800, well over 60fps with the other settings set to "high". If I dropped some of the visual qualities one notch down from "high", it ran well at 1920x1200 @45fps or so. This is with anti-aliasing off.scrooloose said:At the time the original Crysis was released, I had a brand new, very high end PC, with the top Nvidea graphics card available, and Crysis still ran lousy. It was very disappointing.
