I have found other config files for Crysis that people have created and published that allow for higher than very high settings and such. During my time with Crysis, even playing with all settings set to "High" on 1280x768 w/ 2x AA I get times when my framerate drops to somewhere around 25 fps. I can't stand framerates lower than 30. I was wondering if anyone has a configuration thats optimized for systems similar to mine so that I can get the best visuals possible w/o dropping into the 20's?

btw I'm running x64 dx10.

25fps as a low is actually incredibly good for crysis.

Most people aim for an average of 30, no lower than 20fps (but only momentarily, not sustained.)

i think you should be really pleased with you already have. Crysis is not a game that on Current HW, you will get 60fps without turning off eye candy
