That's the great thing about CRTs.

....1920x1600 really isn't necessary- a waste of power, so to say.

Please tell me how you do this. I can only run it comfortably (30FPS) at high settings in DX9 at that res. It'll get even worse when I get my new 22" monitor. Ah, who cares? Screw Crysis, it's not even a very good game .

That's a lie. Maybe at 20FPS or so, but 40FPS is considered playable chief.

Go into your bin folder and you'll see a GPU and CPU time demo option. Each one runs 4 passes then gives you your average FPS. Run it with your very high settings and report back. With motion blur I bet your getting a lot less fps than you think your getting.

Do you have a pentium D or a pentium dual core (E2140, E2180 etc)?

You say it ran fine but your not posting the FPS you were getting,

My buddy was playing COD4 the otherday and cranked most of his settings, and said it ran fine for him to play.

I ran the FPS command and saw that he was getting about 22FPS average with his X850XT PE.....
