Something is wrong.
I have a 9800GTX. It auto detects all high at 1680X1050
Me, Intel fan? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, your funny. I went from a 3GHz athlon to my current CPU, Crysis got a good boost in frames(try from 24-34)...and seemed alot smoother.
yeah, the intels definately outperform the amd
Alright I'm going to say it, Liar. proof would be nice, but I already know the truth and that is that you're wrong, won't admit it and are making things up.
Hey, why don't you guys shut up and get back on topic!
I am going to call driver issues here, even with a slower CPU, the 9800GTX should have plenty of power to run smoothly at 1024x768.
As for the yougurt/urb debate, I say that a 3ghz c2d WILL give better frame rates over a stock 5000+
1024x768 is limited by CPU actually. Take the resolution above 1280x1024 or better and the GPU will be used alot more in your case. This is pretty funny actually.
You will see higher frames and less stutter at higher resolutions most likely. This rule only applies in your extremely rare situation. Who gets a 9800gtx and and sets their games to 1024x768.
Resolutions between 1280x1024 and 1600x1200 will be the safe zone with your rig. Try it!
PS. Before some idiot says I am wrong, I really want you to try it. Then we will decide if I am incorrect or not. I want you to have fun with that killer card.
Yeah, I don't know what yogurt is going on about.
Ha. I was just browsing my Add/Remove programs list and I saw Xtreme Catalyst way at the bottom. Whoops!
I'm going through erocker's uninstall thread. I'll report back later. (Took a half-day so I could be here to pick up my new Verizon BlackBerry Curve. )
Uninstalled RivaTuner and NVIDIA display drivers. Deleted temp and prefetch folders. Ran CCleaner's junk cleaner and registry scanner. Installed ForceWare 174.74, didn't do anything in NVIDIA Control Panel.
Crysis still wants Medium.
Running any of the latest patches GJS?
Sorry for insisting but I'd still run 3dmark06 and see how the card performs vis-a-vis other 9800GTX. Might be there's something wrong with the card and rma'd be the only option...
Edit - and check clocks with GPU-Z. Who knows you might have got a freak card with stock underclock, I dunno
Running Crysis 1.2.
no his 5000+ is plenty for all games
Also is your PSU 520watt
, If so your getting close on power
You might be right but 520 is low for a 9800 gtx sounds more like drivers or a ram problem.
It might be coming close to 520W, but it's a top-notch PSU, so I'm not worried. I never thought I'd get a 9800GTX.
I don't think it'd be my memory. It's running at its advertised timings, 4-4-4-12, and passed about one and a half runs of memtest error-free.
Must be drivers, but I have no idea why.
Could you post a bench of Crysis?
I'll see what I can do when I get home tonight.
So, is the game smooth at all?
With Medium settings, yes. When I pushed everything to High, it was jerky in some spots.
It's Crysis Benchmark game of the year. NO SYSTEM PLAYS IT SMOOTH 24/7 on those settings.
I highly doubt it can't run smoothly on High settings at 1024x768. Maybe a higher res. Maybe even 1280x1024, but jerky gameplay on 1024x768 seems piece-of-cake.
Some do.....But, a 9800GTX, and a 2.6GHz Athlon i would say will always be jerky in spots
Do you run the game in Vista? If so, do you right click it and run it in DX9?
