i don't see any single card solution handling that game anywhere near full quality.. well besides r600 g80 single card solutions...

and i know stupid people like me... love playing with all the eye candy.. otherwise i wouldnt buy high end graphics cards.... i myself, are going to set up a crossfire rig very soon just to play that game along with ut2007... it upsets me i have to pay so much money to play these games full quality though
physics depends a lot more on the CPU, unless you have a PhysX card

a little upgrade isnt going to make him run crysis. just wait til DX10 comes out. and again i'm asking what is your budget. if you want to run crysis at all high settings, ur gonna need a new rig.

lol or he can't type. anyways, the 6800gs never cost close to 600 bucks. i think the retail price was about 250 to begin with. lol your friend got ripped off.
