OK. I built a completely new computer with parts ordered from newegg, totaling $1505 and some change for everything - except an optical drive! I don't know how it was removed from my order before I placed it, but it somehow didn't get ordered. I went to Best Buy when I noticed my mistake and overpaid for a Pioneer DVR1910LS, but I digress. My question is whether anyone has a similar system to mine out there, and what should I be expecting performance-wise? Specifically, how well should this thing be running Crysis 1.2.1 with everything on Very High and the resolution at 1920x1200, with 16xQ AA. System specs follow:

AMD Phenom II X4 940 (3.6ghz with multiplier x18 @ 2.5v with stock cooling)
2x 2GB OCZ 1066 DDR2
Asus M4N72-E SLI
2x EVGA 275 GTX 896MB
Corsair CPMSU-750TX

I am currently running Windows 7 Beta 32-bit, would running 64-bit make a significant improvement? Should I consider going back to Vista for any reason? Thoughts and comments welcome.

noway to run it at even high detail with 16xQ AA. i would run it on hig details with 4xAA and No AF this would be great and i would buy a good cooler and overclock the 940 to 4.0 GHZ
