it will lag hella alot maybe 10fps or less unless you're gonna play on 640 x 480 which even sucks becomes even if you put everything on high its still gonna look ugly with all those pixels you can see. just wait until gx280 comes out and crysis will be smooth as silk on desktop

Graphics card: Inno3D Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS @ 640/940 (core/memory)
MB: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 v3.3 F12
RAM: 2 Kingston HyperX DDR2 800MHz (4GB total)
CPU: Core 2 Duo E6320 @variable rates (will fix my fan problem soon and overclock high again)
HSF: Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme & Antec Tricool 120mm fan
PSU: Delta Serverpower 550W

You guys should really look up benchmarks before talking:

NVIDIA GeForce 8800M Preview - HotHardware

In 3dmark06, the 8800m GTS and a 2.8ghz merom get over 8k. The 1.8ghz merom drops the score
by a little bit, still above 7k though.

And stalker runs at 1920x1200 with 4xAA/8xAF and gets 54.3 fps.

Im quite positive that crysis will be playable at 1280x1024 on high settings, since my rig gets 10k and crysis is very playable at the same res.

And regarding heat issues:

The GeForce 8800M series is very similar to the rest of the GeForce 8M range and they share the same set of features. However it traces its lineage back to the G92 based GeForce 8800 GT, rather than the G86 and G84 GPUs that the other GeForce 8M products were derived from. However, the 8800M's G92M GPU isn't just a G92 desktop chip with additional power saving features enabled. In order to bring the G92's sizable 110W TDP down to something more manageable for a notebook, NVIDIA had to significantly cut back on clock frequency. One of the seven stream processor clusters (each containing 16 stream processors) of the G82 was also cut in the name of heat reduction (and better yields), bringing the G92M down to 96 stream processors, the same as an original G80-based GeForce 8800 GTS. These heat reduction measures seem to have paid off and they bring the TDP of the G92M down to a manageable 35 watts. That might even be low enough to allow a 8800M powered laptop to rest in your lap, although we still wouldn't advise it.

3DMARK06 = 20,341 (3.8GHZ)

P7350 | GTX 260M | 4GB DDR2 800 | 320GB HD | X-Fi | Vista 64

Folding Rig/File Server

M775 | E1200 | Foxconn P9657AB
| Dual 8800GT | Antec NeoHE 500 | Barracuda 80GB | Wintec Ampx
