what settings in Crysis??? Might get 60-65fps in "High" with no AA, but in "Very High" or with 4xAA, you'll be down to <35

with a dualie the 3dmark score is gonna die a little bit ... im gonna guess around 12-15k in 06, and Crysis depends on the settings and resolution... these are just estimates at low res

Very High - <30fps
Very High w/ 2xAA - 15-20fps
Very High w/ 4xAA - 10-15fps
High - 45-55fps
High w/ 2xAA - 35-45fps
High w/ 4xAA - 25-35fps
Medium - 55-65fps
Medium w/ 2xAA - 45-55fps
Medium w/ 4xAA - 40-45fps
Any AA Level 8 samples or greater - <30fps
Any res 1920x1200 or greater - <40fps

need some info on those settings before i vote... you should just go for standards... 1280x1024, All High, no AA

EDIT: I oughta start making odds on these and taking bets! lol

8, 9, 10k in 3dmark06....

I'd say High is playable.. not the most smooth thing in the world but it should be fine

I think the 9600 series scale pretty well in SLI, so 15k might be possible, after some overclocking though. I would think 13-14k is definately achievable because a single 9600GSO should get over 10k overclocked.
