Re: Preparing PC for GTX 580
your processor is probably the bottleneck of your system, but it doesn't matter really because the games are more gpu intensive than cpu intensive. Also it's hard to tell if it will max crysis 2 because it isn't out yet. I don't think it'll max out with full AA/AF on a 24 and get over 30fps, Metro 2033 gets 42fps maxed out on a 24" with full aa/af on the 580, and I would say that crysis 2 would aim to be more demanding than that so I'm sure it will be playable with everything maxed out but I would be hesitant to say it'll play perfectly.
