By the way, anyone know how to bypass the stupid DX10 thing in crysis, it keeps me from going into Very High settings. I can't use DX10 as I use XP.
There are a few ways to get very high through tweaks and a few minutes on google will show you. My preference, however, is the CCC 2.1
(3.0 for Warhead) setup. Not only is it a set of tweaks that runs things at very high, but it runs better and they've also tweaked the TOD so it looks even better than default Crysis. Definitely, definitely do it.
As for XP. It's time to move on. Get Windows 7. Your card is fantastic and awesome and powerful, and running XP won't hurt that, but when it comes time that you want to enable DX 11 features, you're going to find you can't (you need vista or 7), and I've yet to see any good workarounds. It's a very strong OS and definitely worth it.
