Yeah to play crysis you need a pc. If that is an Intel based mac you can install windows via a nifty program called BootCamp. But you still cant upgrade the graphics, and the newer mac minis come with Intel Integrated if I remember.

IN short, with that computer you cant play crysis. The video card cannot be upgraded and you are running the wrong operating system.

This thread is hysterical; I almost suspect it is a joke lol.

In order to play that game that your mother bought you, you will need several hundreds of dollars to build a custom PC. Crysis is one of the most demanding games out today and the graphics industry is still trying its best to max out the game with 60fps.

You PC appears to be a non-upgradable MAC. You will need to build a gaming pc.
