Well, shouldn't it be faster since it's superclocked to 576MHZ and 1.7GHZ. And I was planning on using this computer for crysis...

Well it is faster, but just save yourself the money, get the non-overclocked version....and just overclock it for free.

It probably could. Just don't expect max settings. Or depends on the resolution, you're playing with.

i believe you can because there was this event where gamers came in to play crysis and the computers were using 8800GTS.


also, if your going to spend like 1500$ on a computer, y not get a C2D?

I will only get C2D if I can get and eVGA 680i Motherboard, and and an E6600 for the same price, or less than what I'm getting now.
