Hey shade what OS are you running?

Check the "event viewer" in Vista or XP, should give an error message if you could post that information it would be more helpful in determining the problem.

Ideally you should run your sytem at stock if it crashes then it could likely be failing hardware, however Crysis is/was so poorly coded even the slightest instability will crash it.

Crysis was a game I played, beat it, and then uninstalled it never again to waste space on any of my HDD(s)

+1 same here, only reason it ever gets installed now is purely benchmarking, I still have yet to beat warhead, I get half way through and get bored with it...

Okay so I finally beat crysis without any changes, to my set Graphics options no crashes this time, it might have been a poor save because when I started the save it would crash.

What im running crysis at:

1280/1024
Everything high
no AA

When I went into taskbar I think thats what it is called I was using 40% CPU 70% physical memory while playing crysis warhead?? Kind of strange thats almost 3GB used while playing My name is Ishmael. The OS I am using is Windows 7 RC.

Is this the Dx9 or Dx10 version of the game? You can see a pretty decent increase in frames with very very little decrease in picture quality if you run it in Dx9.

Yeah if you dropped it to Dx9 you could probubly step the resolution up a notch and still gain FPS, I know when I did it with my single 9800GTX+ I could run at 1650x1080 with mid-high settings and still get 40+ FPS on Dx9 but with the same settings on dx10 I was getting 25-35 fps.

Those temps arent bad at all, +9c over idle.

Though 42c I don't think is my idle because it was just my temp while I was doing nothing on the desktop and how would I go about lowering to DX9
