High-End Crysis 3 DIY Gaming PC Build Guide

GamersNexus: "The legacy left by the original Crysis is one of worldwide renown: Shipping at just around the same time as nVidia's 8800-series GPUs—which were ground-breaking in their own right—the game promised to push PC gaming to new heights. It delivered. Well, graphically, at least; Crytek's CryEngine has famously pushed multi-FPU (floating-point-unit) support to better accommodate multi-core chips, and that trend continues with CryEngine 3." (Crysis 3, PC, Tech)

In all honesty you dont need most of that to play crysis 3 in very high settings.

all you really need is:
i5 3570k (or you could save like $20 and go for the locked 3570. stock clock speeds are more than enough to run your games)
8GB DDR3 1600MHz (you dont need 1866MHz. 1600MHz is plenty fast enough)
GTX 670(you will save at least $100 by getting the 670 instead of a 680)

basically, you dont need to have such high-end cards to get crysis 3 to play on very high. If you are only going to be gaming on 1 monitor and @1920x1080p, the 670 should be more than enough

Lol true..

Its going to be a console port. Its not like the original Crysis where it really pushes hardware.

You mean it is not like original Crysis where there was little to no optimisation in order to "force" users to think that their hardware was outdated and cause Crytek were "bored" to optimise it....

Crysis 2 is better in terms of graphics and yet runs better than Crysis....why? optimisation.

Wow that is my setup except i have 16gb, hopefully your right.

decrypt, I've got a good PC and Crysis 1 is easier to run than 2 or the 3 beta. Regardless of some of the things C1 did graphically, C3 is absolutely more demanding by far, like it or not.

Also the suggestions given in that post are 'high-end' to the vast majority of people. Above all, your card must be DX11.

You must be the only person running the original Crysis in better FPS than 2! I can recall I had around 5 to 10 FPS increase in 2 from the original....

Just because it's easier to run, does not mean it's less demanding.

Crysis 1 was not optimised and warhead was only slighter better.

Crytek have updated their toolset and are doing fx that were not in crysis1 but are in crysis3.

As for the game.

It's better then 1-2 imo, but I still feel nothing towards the characters or missions.

That is where games like Uncharted win, because they make you feel part of it.
