The better the cooling you can add to the processor the cooler and better your cpu will be. the 140mm fan is a case fan, yes?
you will need to upgrade your cpu fan and heatsink.

CPUs on 45nm core are overall cooler than their predecessors on Core micro-architecture. However, the temperature different under 100% workload makes only 4-5 degrees. The thing is that Wolfdale processor core is smaller and features higher transistor density within a semiconductor die, which makes it a little harder for the heat flow to dissipate properly. That is why Wolfdale and Conroe heat up almost identically in idle mode. As for the relatively low temperature of AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+, with twice as high TDP as that of Core 2 Duo actually, it can be explained by the not very best location of the on-die thermal sensor that is situated quite far from the hottest spots of the processor’s semiconductor die.

    your money would be better spent on a new heatsink and fan for your cpu. the 140mm case fan should put plenty of air into the case.
    i suggest you look into something like the Scythe Orochi CPU Cooler and stick another 140mm fan on the side of that.

To install graphic card on Intel Motherboard D845GVSR


as a rule any Pentium 4 motherboard would not support a CPU let alone a video card that could play Crysis at any level that would be enjoyable. It's likely you either don't have a video card card expansion slot or that the one you have is AGP.

If you don't, sorry nothing you can do. If you have AGP you could in theory add a sufficiant card to meet the minimum spec and load the game but the store would have done you a disservice by selling it to you as your processor and RAM would barely alloww the game to load and even if a 1GB 9800 could be supported by you PC the performance your CPU could offer would leave the game lagging significantly on the physics side which would really mess up the game.

Frankly I work days in a retail computer store and have played crysis on several PCs, In my experience the minimum PC for "good" gameplay is a tri core AMD at least 2.1Ghz per CPU with 4GB of RAM and a 9600 512MB, and I have tried it on several machines.

My personal recommendation would be bare minimum:

Q6600 or AMD 8000 series Quad Core
4GB RAM
9800GT 512MB or ATI 4850 512MB

This will get a decent frame rate and support at least 1680 resolution, in gaming though, more is always better, frankly it would be cheaper to scrap that plan and by an Xbox with a copy of it's version of Crysis for under $400 unless you plan to play other PC only games in which case you can build what I recomended for around $1000US less if you already have a decent monitor or plan to hook up to a 120Hz LCD TV


Hope this helped,

E8400 or Q6600


personally i have the q6600 which is a quad core processor, all the others you listed were dual core, personally i use alot of programs all at once which is good if you have a quad core, but just for general music, data, and streaming, the e8400 is probably better for you, its a 3ghz processor.

Check to see if your fan on your video card is spinning and is not clogged with dust. Almost sounds as if it is overheating and causing a reboot.
