widescreen169 Posted August 29, 2008 Report Share Posted August 29, 2008 My XPS 1530 ddr3 is overclocked to 710 core and 1102 memory with ntune. DX9 - 960x600 (Custom Resolution) Texture Quality - HIGH Objects Quality - HIGH Shadows - MEDIUM (may not seem like it but it is sufficient and looks great) Physics - HIGH Shader Quality - HIGH Volumetric Effects - MEDIUM (If you like clear skies then put this on LOW might get a FPS boost) Game Effects - HIGH Post Processing - MEDIUM Particles - MEDIUM Water - HIGH Sound - MEDIUM Vsync is enabled aswell (i suggest you do this as well as triple buffering is in my edited config file below) This gave me decent performance and over 30 FPS which is good but Crysis plays very well even on about 22 FPS so I created the system.cfg file. con_restricted=0 r_DisplayInfo=1 q_Renderer=3 r_colorgrading=1 r_UseEdgeAA=0 r_UsePOM=1 e_water_ocean_fft=1 r_sunshafts=1 r_TexturesStreaming=0 e_phys_foliage=2 r_WaterGodRays=1 r_GeomInstancing=1 es_OnDemandPhysics=1 e_particles_thread=1 ai_UseAlternativeReadability=0 d3d9_TripleBuffering=1 r_height=600 r_width=960 This made DX9 look very similar to very high. I get the sun rays coming through the trees and the rainbow effect in the water and the overall colour of the game has become warmer which makes the game look so sweet! And the best thing about it is that the frame rate never drops below 25 FPS which gives me great enjoyment playing it. I also have a Notepal Infinite cooler so my overclocked card doesn't overheat maxes at about 76 so its all good. No gliches at these clocks so absolutely amazing!
