    To be fair fluid mechanics is pretty processor heavy and hard stuff to do...

    Dynamic water would be really cool still :D

    Nice pics there:D
    You only need a DX9 system to play, but obviously, DX10 will enhance your pretty graphics even more :D

    This is where I think the Quad core CPU's of the future or the PhysX processor will really help in making games more realistic.

    Well, we're playing crysis here, not uber ship simulator, so proper fluid mechanics for water is nothing more than a very expensive (processor wise) bit of eye candy, that would improve it by a noticeable amount, but only a small amount, at a great cost. It would also add absolutely nothing to the gameplay side.

    Why should I be happy about it ? Do i get it for free? No, it's just another step in photorealistic graphics and my hand has to go further into my pocket once again (not this time though, i'd rather wait for holographic virtual reality with force feedback body suits, then i'll invest).

    I'm not talking about the game price but the price we have to pay cause this specific game is introducing new standards aka new graphics adapter with all the shiny effects and DX69 support. Yes, it's a lot more than £30 if you want to enjoy this :p

    Why are you making such a song and dance about the evolution of PC gaming?

    Yes it cost more to have the features, do you expect everything to run on legacy hardware? Nobody is forcing you to buy it, but how can you be so narrow minded as to complain about the cost of progress?

    You can still play Ninja Scooter on the Amstrad 464, but then you have 30+ minute load times, crap graphics, noisey tape drive, no lcd screen, no mouse, chunky keyboard, unstable OS. You can complain about everything or embrace the future and accept it because it aint going to change.

    If your having issues about the cost of a PC which will allow you to play this then I cant wait to hear your complaints about the cost of a 'holographic force feedback what ya call it' :eyebrow: (not in your lifetime)

    I'm ready for Crysis now so my only complaint is that I cannot yet buy it.

    Too true - either accept technology/gaming advancements or ignore them. The latest technology, although expensive on release, always becomes affordable and obtainable for the masses.

    There is also something called low settings, you don't have to play the game at max settings, you don't need DX10, in fact I heard crysis doesn't really use the new DX10 features to full effect, and all of the older vidoes are actually DX9

    I'm not even playing games anymore, not like i used too at least. And I won't be playing crisis. The only thing i'm saying is that you're being manipulated by companies, they're giving you technology in slices, with every slice being more and more overpriced each time and you even thank them for it. With every new game coming out it's like "oh look another reason to upgrade my computer, again!". At least you can be a bit perceptive and don't consume everything they feed you. I try to...ok you don't care, however i'm free to express my opinion and if you don't like it i don't care more than you care about my view on the subject.

    peace :)

    Well people still play source on VERY old cards like ti4200's and it runs. Doesn't mean to say it looks good though.

    Technology comes in slices cause they have to develop it, then put it to an unsure market cause if it doesn't sell then they are screwed. If you don't like advancement then don't buy into it early...simple as that.

    Thats awesome, had to check a couple of the pictures twice!
    Still no confirmed news on the spec to run this at a decent level.
    I'd be interest to see what a 8800GTX does to it!
    Also there was some comparisons with DX9 vs DX10 on Crysis things like Explosions and falling rocks looked stunning.

    Thanks for posting OP pictures.

    We all have to accept that gaming on PC at games max settings is gonna be a bit more expensive in future although it's quite hard to find a time that it was'nt.
