crysis under 1k isn't doable. its so intensive its scary. you're gonna have to pick up one of the new 8800GT's or two or a 8800 GTS 512mb if u want to play crysis on any decent res at high res. I got q6600 + 2 gig ram and 8800 GTS 320 and i can't run crysis smooth on 12x10 on very high settings. granted thats very high but after i saw the difference between high and very high i didn't wanna play on high.
