    only 2GB of RAM? guess it's designed for maxing out in XP under Dx9. Crysis Dx10 under Vista loves RAM.

    isn't 9800GT just rebranded 8800GT? then it won't be able to do 22inch very well even at high.

    it's a good value PC for that price, but IMHO bit-tech's £400 PC is better.

    Over 30fps High settings in DX9 or DX10 and at what resolution? Crysis with 2GB under dx10 gave me stuttering game play, and thats running with a 4850 and a Q6600 on a 22'' monitor, until I upgraded to 4GB now its all smooth sailing. I wonder how much optimisation the new game has gone through if at all...

    Good show EA. Crysis isn't nearly as intensive as people make it out to be. Hopefully this will put a stop to the madness.

    It's supposed to be optimised quite a bit though isn't it? I hope the requirements go down so it's easily playable on very high with AA. :D

    DaMightyMouse - yes, that's a 4850. You shouldnt expect it to run smoothly on an ATI. Grab a decent nVidia card and it runs just fine. Ran fine on Vista dx10, 2gb ram, 8800GTS 320Mb and Core2 1.86GHz.

    I think the important question is, at what resolution?

    It's supposed to be optimized, so maybe a 9800gt can play it on that screen fine who knows. I can't wait to try it out personally, it's supposed to have a lot more action than Crysis, should be a lot of fun.

    32", 720P screen? Not too difficult really.

    If you take a look at this page, you will see that the 4850 is significantly faster than the 8800GT, sometimes rivalling the GTX 260:

    Gaming is a hobby, one of the least expensive I can think of for an adult.
    Golf, Archery, Gambling, Fishing, Shooting all cost alot more.

    People need to accept that their old school 7 series nvidia card wont play todays games well, or at all. That dusty dual core at 2.4 ghz isnt going to run Vista, its overhead, a voice program and fed any gpu enough data to keep it happy.

    Set aside 1000 euros a year for your hobby and you will be ahead of the game. Build a new system every 2 years with regular mid service upgrades of things like GPU, hard drives and RAM.

    The problem is that ALOT of people whine about system specs, and it HOLDS BACK the hobby as a whole. I am playing Crysis right now on my new rig. It is what I want to see more of, in terms of graphics anyway.

    Upgrade and Enjoy!

    Yours in Quad-core, HD 4870X2 Plasma,

    The development team at Crytek claims that this hardware should run the game on high detail without ever dipping below 30 frames per second.

    Yeah at 320/240

    I don't believe them either. I have a quad core cpu 4gb ddr3 ram and a GTX280. I played at 1920X1200 and while 95% of the time it was smooth and above 30FPS it would still regularly dip below that and as low as 10FPS when thing got a bit intense. This is at max settings of course.

    I guess 'High' settings will be equivalent quality wise ' medium' on the original game. Either that or they have optimised the game engine correctly this time round.
