Crysis is probably THE worst game to benchmark with. I actually get lower frame rates with my SLI turned on than with it off.

I have a socket 939 mobo. I couldn't find any processors ascending past 4600+ for that socket.

Does anyone have a recommendation perhaps for a processor that would do an 8800GT justice that I overlooked?

How is that possible? Sounds like a hardware issue.

NOS when did you get an 8800gt?
didn't you get a $400 GTX? or 2?
cuz on a 24'' you'd think the extra $100 for a GTX would be worth it
