Best of CryEngine 2 with impressive Shots.
Man, to think Wolfenstein 3d led to this.
Being a gamer fromt he 80's, these kind of shots make me giddy. I run two GTX 275's in SLI and Crysis makes me cry some times with how awesome the graphics are. We certainly have come a long way.
I am thinking about getting a 275. But cannot decide between that and a 4890. which is better?
but I have a 4890 and I'm loooooving it. MSI version. The new Cyclone edition is out, which has over 1ghz clock speed. Crazy.
The GTX 275 and 4890 are are almost identical in performance. It's really up to your preference.
go back in time and show this to a gamer from 90's ... he will die of the sheer awesomeness he sees :D
I'm dieing right now as we speak. Compare these to the old PlayStation One games or sims game. It is truly amazing.
Do you think a GTX 295, an Intel i7 920 with 6 gigs of DDR3 Ram will play Crysis? Need some of your opinions.
Yes it will play it beautifully
Your future rig sounds like the one I just built but mine is with the AMD 955 Black Edition EVGA GTX 275 Superclocked 4gbs of DDR3 1600mhz ram(I'm running xp pro sp3 that's all I need for now I can go to 8 or more if I need it eventually. 1tb Baracudda hard drive Sony Opteric 24x DVD/CD Burning
this is why crysis is stil lthe best looking game we've seen to date. consoles cant touch it.
Consoles can't touch it yet, maybe it will take next gen to happen but it will happen. I've got a nice PC but I also have a PS3 an with optimization an the tricks that devs learn they continue to close to gap day by day. Not to mention as pretty as Crysis is we are gamers an I doubt you wanna play one game for the rest of its duration as the best looking game to date graphically. Games like God of War III, Uncharted 2 and GT5 are good examples PC PS3 combo FTW.
Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2 have absolutely nothing on Crysis. Sorry, they're wonderful looking games. The best looking on consoles, but when you compare it to Crysis you realize why PC is always the winner. More power, more RAM, better graphics cards, better computing power. Consoles cannot match PCs because consoles are closed-box and only take advantage of current gen tech. PCs are open-boxed, customizable, and always grow in power. They don't run on 5 year old tech if the owner doesn't want it to.
Wish I had a powerful brick sh*t house of a pc so I could even just run this game on its lowest settings... Think thats my next goal... Buy an awesome pc that will NEVER go out of date... until 2 weeks later when an even better one comes out. Is it worth the effort of buying all the parts yourself and building one? Or does it cost about the same to jsut get one custom built from somewhere? (avoiding dell and major PC retailers)
It all depends on the deals going on, I built mine an put it all together. An I made my brother buy his from cyberpower because I didn't wanna go through all the tweaks to get his up an running. With sales going on for the both of us its turning out to cost about the same except he is getting the GTX 285 FTW edition. I do agree with you on the fact that it feels like as soon as you buy something in the pc market something better is out the next day or atleast on sale. I finally put my foot down an decided I gotta buy sometime an went for the best bang for the buck products along side performance an expandabilty.
I know that's my goal as well. As for "never going out of date" that's impossible. Only advice I have is get the newest and latest stuff so it lasts you longer if your so worried. Lol i7 quad core, Quad SLI and 16Gb of ram, lol that'd be sick if I had the money. I would do it just to say I did it.
it really does not cost that much to run crysis at high setting 4GB of RAM would great but anything over 2GB will do Intel core 2 Duo E5200 £45 will be great plus overclocking when it comes to graphics ATI are the best price vs performance but are behind Nvidia in out right performance. but saying that out of these 4 cards 4870 is the best. 1GB version gives you about 5 FPS more give or take. ATI HD 4770 £70 ATI HD 4870 £110 Nvidia 9800 GT about £75 - £100 Nvidia GTX 260, 216 cores for about £130
wow. that's a hell of a rig to get shots like that though. No?
people said this game is only good for graphics, well I enjoyed it on my x1950 pro (medium to low) still enjoying this series now with my GTX 285 maxed.
My rig is: Phenom x4 955 @ 3.8Ghz Radeon 4870 4GB DDR 2 RAM 1066 790GX Mobo Samsung 22x DVD R/W Samsung 24" Monitor I can run crysis really well i was planning on getting a new card but i think ill just wait until the DX11 cards come out.
I would wait on the new DX11 cards as well if that's what your rolling with now. An do you actually keep your 955 overclocked all the time an if so what cooling do you use. I know someone that went to 3.8 using the Zalmen 9900 LED an I was thinking of getting that. At the same time that person also said they didn't leave it Overclocked because it potentially lessens the life of the processor an I don't want that. I looked into water cooling but man I've already dropped about 1100 on my new pc an I don't wanna spend much more.
Yeah i do keep it clocked that high but i turned off the Cool N Quiet thing i didnt want the voltages to keep changing when the thing is underload but i might just turn it back on. I use an Arctic Cooling Freezer pro 64 with Arctic Cooling MX-2 thermal compound. Im not much of fan of water cooling myself lol wouldnt trust myself installing it. Anyword on when the DX 11 cards are out ? end of the year maybe ?
No no offical word yet my friends were like wait an I was like ummm no cuz I would have been without a graphics card for god knows how long. We atleast know its after windows 7 but my bet on the first one out is its gonna come by way of ATI. Thanks for the info I'll look into the cooler you have compared to the Zalmen 9900 led an go with one of those. I was looking at the Cooler Master V10 but I never really saw the scale of it till just now on youtube. An OMFG that thing is like putting an gas powered RC car on top of your Motherboard.
Enate - It's just textures. Nothing in that game, either 360 or PS3 can't handle. Except the higher quality textures. But even with those, it doesn't look life like, that's a long way off.
sorry xg-ei8ht but ps3 and 360 cant handle crysis PS3 & 360 http://i39.tinypic.com/2dm9...

I enjoyed that video...pretty cool. Thanks for posting that!
Hey, someone posted my video :)
I have Intel Q6600, 4 gig ram, Ati 4870 (love this card).
Crysis is so god damn beautiful. I sometimes find it hard to believe I'm rendering it in real time as I play. Brings a tear to my eye.
Can't wait till they reveal in-gme footage of Crysis 2. It will be a glorious thing.
