  1. yesterday tried Crysis 2 on my new PC set. it was awoseme...Crysis sets graphic card setting to Ultra. I reset it to very high (i afraid it may cooked my graphic card).
    Does it matter if i set it to Ultra?

    well if it runs completely smooth you won't be damaging your card, only a worry when the game shudders and lags alot. To check your temps if your really concerned download GPU-Z from http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/SysInfo/GPU-Z/ and run the temp tracer while its running

    if your graphics card temp is too hot ( more than 80 c ) you can increase fan speed by using msi afterburner or rivatuner.

    or you could just turn the graphics down

    Just tested with GPU-Z as below result:
    normal temp was 36c to 37c.
    Crysis running with very high setting, 46c to 50c
    it could be raising, have to keep observe it. beside, there was lag(2sec delay) in the game, but this was happened in once a while.

    thats a good level when playing Crysis, mine usually gets up to 60c
    I would run a few benchmarks for the game and see what the minimum fps is because that 2sec delay mayb just be a once off at a certain point

    Do u have this problem : Keyboard Lag
    it happens randomly like when you press "W" the character moves forward 2 or 3 steps rather than one. .. etc and it has sound "dede...de"
