Hey all, first post here.
My Sony Vaio desktop computer died on me a few weeks ago and forced me to purchase a new computer. I went ahead and built my own, costing me about $15-600 in all for a pretty kickass machine.
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4Ghz
Corsair 450W Power supply
ASUS P5K-E LGA775 Intel P35 ATX motherboard
Raptor 150GB 10,000rpm HD
WD 500gb secondary HD
Corsair XMS2 2GB DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual channel kit RAM
Vista Ultimate (32b)
EVGA 640-P2-N829-AR GeForce 8800GTS SSC 640MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI-ex16 Video card
Overall, its been an awesome experience with only a few problems here and there (nothing a few patches didn't fix
I don't do MUCH gaming, but when I play, I want it to be smooth and perfect at the max settings. I tried World of Warcraft maxed out and it is awesome.
How about Crysis? Hm...
Just got the game and installed it... on 1920x1200 (on my 24" monitor) the "Very High" setting lags a lot in-game...its not very smooth at all. In "High" its much better, but still not PERFECT like Warcraft is on all highest settings. medium is fine but the graphics really suck on that setting.
Am I missing something here? I thought my computer would be able to perfectly handle the highest settings on current games. Any and all feedback will be great. I look forward to seeing what you say!
