The computer-melting first-person shooter Crysis can be run at sixty frames per second with the graphics settings turned way up. Yes, it's actually possible. It takes only one easy step: "Buy an $8,000 computer." See? Simple!
Maxforce 3-Way SLI and 4 GHz+ http://www.tomshardware.com... Probably find one for around $6-7000, get you an average of 2 fps more to! Bargain ;)
This is the reason why I went console and use my PC just for Valve Software duty.
Yeah, but Crysis is the exception, this PC will get 60 fps on Crysis but a million on everything else. It's not even that great a game, there are certainly better (COD4/5, UT, L4D,FC2) and those are all perfectly playable on a much more affordable rig.
Pah! I was able to get roughly 45 FPS at high/max settings using a stock GeForce 260 and AMD Phenom 9550 + 4GB RAM @ 1920x1200. And it cost $1300. This is just over-kill. All the game needs is optimization.
Good enough for me! Supreme Commander murders my processor on big games though.
i got great FPS maxed in crysis with phenom and 2 4870s :)
Make it for Sony PS3. with the power of the Cell,Blu-ray and the most powerfull GPU in the world Nvidia RSX there is nothing Sony PS3 can do look at KZ2 it looks and plays far better then Crysis on the best PC's in the world!
omg u fanboy n00b wrong i know it and u know it and if u dont then ur just a fanboy, simple as, my 9800 GTX is 70% for powerful than the cell and the RSX put together. the GTX 280 GPU does 933 GFLOP/s were as the PS3 whole system only does 218 GFLOP/s and that cant even play at very high with full AA, AS, shader and high res my card will play at very high with 4 X AA, 4 X AS, full shader and 720p res which is very low in terms of resolution range for PC and i get about 52Fp/s
but crysis isn't all that well optimized, people should just stop talking about it already. It was a good but not a classic game.
Yeah, the talk of the graphics really made people ga-ga over the game. I probably wouldn't even count it in my top 5 (or 10) favorite shooters.
Crysis is just a benchmark now. I don't know anyone who even plays it anymore. Just wasn't that much fun.
WTF u crazy KZ2 look hot but nothing come close to Crysis graphic
you can run crysis on 30 fps on 1600X1200 with a 1000 euro system.
It only takes about 1000 to do it...
ok so spent 350 dollars and upgraded my computer a month ago, I wasn't even able to play battlefield 2 on my old rig thats how outdated it was, 350 bucks later im able to run crysis on medium settings no problems and this stupid article is telling people 8 grand is the key to max settings? get the [email protected]#$ outta here
i play the game on all high and get a average 35fps i do a little over clocking but thats it. i have sli 9600gt but spent a little over 800. please dont tell me i wasted my money because i play most games maxed out or close to maxed out. 800 dollars gets you a lot for your money now days. of course its not for every one but come on a 800 dollar pc does way more then a ps3 and a 360 can do combined. i have a ps3 and i prefer my ps3 over my pc but when i multie plat game comes out for the pc its way better. cheaper, mods, better graphics, smoother fps, faster load times, and sometimes better controls. i understand that pc gaming is some times to much to ask for but if u want the best pc gaming is great.
ridiculous. that is why I only play on consoles.
Who fvcking cares how it looks on an $8000 computer that will be outdated in four months, #1 reason pc gaming blows a fatty.
i made my own custom computer with only like 900$ can run crysis on high with 60 fps easy u just have to be smart on ur choices
omg people i built my system for £800-$1600 at the time and i can play with AA X 4, AS X 4 full shaders, 720P res and DX10 at 52 FPS, the ps3 and 360 could not achieve that at medium and with no AA, AS, shaders. PS3 and 360 lag on game that PC can play at over 80 FPS COD4 example
over 400fps in COD4. LOL.
this is the reason i left pc gaming as well. too much money for not too great titles. crysis? that's my reward for dropping 2000+ - no thanks.
get alot more for ur money Video Lan owns any media ability the PS3 got or the 360 and its costs nothing more apps than PS3 and 360 got games, sony and microsoft only get there sales because they spend more money in advertisment in one year than PC games have in last 5 years easy
So i'm pretty excited. Might actually be able to play Crysis now. Wootwoot! http://www.bestbuy.com/site...
Not bad at all for the price I just hope 4 you that its mobo has more then 1 PCIe slot incase you ever want crossfire or sli or whatever.
makes kickass stuff now. I love the laptop i got from them.
Crysis is actually well optimized for what's on screen. It's just pushing so much more tech than other games. All of the dynamic lighting effects, shaders, parralax mapping, ambient occlusion, high polygon models, a gig of texture memory, etc.
First of all, why ddr3-1066 Mhz ram when he can easily say ddr3-2000. Second, if I remember correctly, Crysis is Crossfire-hating. Might be better off with SLI if you're only trying to go overkill on Crysis.
they fixed the crossfire thing im pretty sure.
I'll just wait until the PS3 releases it's version of Crysis. It may not look as good as the Maxed-out version, but that's $8000 more bucks in my pocket. ..And +$8000 in my pocket looks even better to me.
what these"i can build a rig for £220" pc gamers forget is not everyone has this technical knoledge or can be arsed fiddiling for hours to play a game.thats why high end pc gaming is on the way out.a shame cos its been responsible for a lot of gaming innovations the past 15 years.peace
Building PCs today is extremely easy. I used to be very intimidated about building one myself, but I did recently without a lot of prior knowledge without any help.
May be simple but not cheap. It's like saying ¨just buy a house,see simple you've dune it congrats! But after that you have to live on bread & water.
I still like my Q6600 and geforce 280GTX.
