um 400x8 = 3200mhz not 3350, if you need help getting your rig 24/7 stable at 3.6 let me know i can surely help you out. do you have a G0 or B3 stepping proc?

Sorry my bad, I am now running it at 3.2GHz as I wanted to keep a 1:1 ratio and my memory couldn't keep up. But I'm always willing to learn, I have a G0 stepping.

You have to be joking. My kid is averaging 25 fps with custom medium to high settings on an Asus 7900GS 256MB, Athlon 64 3200+ and 2GB PC3200 memory. No overclocking.

I think your setup at stock speeds will handle Crysis just fine.

I would suggest running everything at default settings to see how it goes. Then, if it's not running how you like it, try overclocking it some.

Nah. It can be pushed past 400MHz using the right dividers to keep the memory running at spec. I can't tell you how though, I'm not familiar with all the memory/clock settings and how to manually set them while overclocking. That sounds like a great topic for another thread once your computer is up and running.
