I am stumped ....

My system is as follows:

M4A79 Delux, 4 Gigabytes of DDR2 1066 Dominator Series, Phenom ii 940 @ 3.4Ghz cooled with the H50 @ 37c per core under load, 5870, Sata 160Raptor (OS), Sata Seagate 500 (Steam games & everythign else) Windows 7 Pro 64 bit all in an Antec 900

I have the latest build of OS, drivers, Direct X, Bios etc etc ...

Now keep in mind this is the steam version of crysis (not sure if it matters) and before you say anything I am not trying to max this game out, just get it playable ....

Regardless of the level of detail, or resolution I am getting bursts of spontaneous lag ... that is bringing me to 0 FPS (via FRAPS)for anywhere from 1 - 3 seconds.I am getting these lag spikes every 40 in game feet, and when I fire my gun at an AI, and fire the gun on the vehicle (and try to turn around in the vehicle. Even on low settings I am still getting these lag spikes.

Not to compare games but I can max out Metro 2033 DX11 @ 1900 / 1200 with 0% lag.... What am I missing here?

Thanks for your help ahead of time : )))
