I think a lot of people were intimidated by all the hype Crysis was getting about the graphics and hardware requirements. If you have anything less than a moderately decent and new system, it'll run like dog crap. I downloaded the demo when it came out and my computer that I use now, I built 4 years ago with top quality hardware, and I could barely get more than 15fps on medium settings.

Yeah Crysis's sales should go up after everyone has upgraded. After I played the demo I realized it was time to upgrade.

Hmmm sounds like a good idea. Thanks. This is the problem with planning out a rig a few months in advance, your hardware selection is always gonna change.

why didnt you get the q6600 instead?
its most deff better and can oc to around 3.6 on air and would still perform better than a dual core at 4.0.
