i know.. the gtx and ultra cards are huge. i never thought of that. if it's possible i'll do the same thing.

doubt it.... it might be mid-high, maybe mid-low.... ppl are saying the 8800's may struggle with dx 10 gaming..... 9 series will be a breeze for em;

i was looking forward to cyrsis too. that game looks awesome.

i'll stick with the 320 for now and upgrade it when prices go down.

i heard the 9 series has 1 teraflop. those are gonna be very expensive.

I'd be surprised if you could get Crysis to play on low settings. But we won't know for sure until it comes out.

well i did a lil potin on a crysis forum a while ago. ppl said with my computer i will get maybe 20 frames with a e6600 @3.4 and ram @1000mhz. i dont no if this is a reliable source but with my quad i could imagine it would be a noticable difference since they are optimzing for them also my gtx @ 630/940 should also help a bit
