Easy... don't expect to max it with all settings on, Crysis is poorly engineered in terms of being over demanding though..

(I'm assuming you don't need a monitor)
Q6600
Asus p5q Pro
HD 4850
4gb DDR2 800
Case/ OP's of Your Preference
640gb Western Digital Drive
Corsair 750tx (if you want to upgrade to two HD 4850's)

These are from anadtech's review of the 4850.

AnandTech: The Radeon HD 4850 & 4870: AMD Wins at $199 and $299

Default Re: I need some help!

now lets say i made a pc with 2 of these in there..

Newegg.com - ZOTAC ZT-98XES2P-FCP GeForce 9800 GTX 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

would it run Crysis pretty close to 60 FPS on high settings?

if you are going to do that go ahead and get the gtx+ for $200 better card for same price.

and that depends on your gaming resolution....i doubt any good res will be able to play crisis 60+ fps no matter the setup

If you had two of those, you'd have to change the board I suggested to something else, but I say get two HD 4850's because you can get better boards instead of SLI chipset ones

Check the Anandtech Benchmarks

Its a no.. same with the 9800gtx+ but Crysis does better with nVidia card since Crysis was endorsed by nVidia anyways
