    Would someone be able to tell me if the following system would be able to run Crysis at 1920x1200 with all it's settings maxed out with the FPS never hitting lower than 60?

    Vista Ultimate 64Bit
    Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9770
    EVGA 790i Ultra
    X3 EVGA GeForce GTX 280 Cheesecake in TRI-SLI
    X4 Mushkin Ascent XP3-12800 2GB

    Would this system be able to do it? Thanks.

    Hmmm I'm yet to see anything run Crysis at that resolution on max with anything about 40 constantly. But those are killer specifications.

    The only thing I'd question is the RAM - you might be better with 4GB. :)

    There's a article on this site that says that Crysis benefits from having 8GB, so what makes you say that?

    The more ram the better and if he is building a system like that, then I see little reason to leave out a few slots :D

    I think he's not noticed the x4 at the start of the line. Just reading the 2gb. To be fair though. Hardware names are so stupid nowadays it's an easy mistake to make :p

    Anyhoo, that system will have no trouble if you play it on a small res (1024x768) or a HDTV but you'd be pushing it at a big resolution monitor.

    Also, Crysis still looks awesome running at about 20fps. It uses blur very effectively. Tricking the eyes into seeing smooth motion even if it's not. So while it might be nice if it ran at 60fps, you'd be just as happy at 30.

    My mistake. What if you did a sustainable overclock of every thing?

    :eyebrow:

    HDTVs go up to 1920x1080, that's not exactly small >.>

    I'd get 2x 4Gbs dual channel instead of 4x 2gbs

    I'd think the cpu would be the bottleneck in that unit, i understand it's an amazing cpu but with 3x gpu's and that much ram. Get a skulltrail with 2x cpu and 2 GTX 280's in SLI with 8 / 16 GB of ram and a solid state drive for speed and then you'll be like ZOOM!

    Sorry, that'll teach me to concentrate harder on the OP.

    You'd be better off with 2*4GB sticks rather than 4*2GB sticks. :D

    I don't think they're available in the UK yet? I've certainly never seen 8GB (2x 4GB) kits anywhere at least?

    So just stick with yer 4x 2GB modules ;)

    So you think it would be better with the Intel D5400XS (Skulltrail) even though it would have one less EVGA GTX 280 Cheesecake and it doesn't support DDR2 or DDR3. Would Crysis recognise the four extra cores though?

    I hope your not actually thinking of buying all this just to run Crysis at 60fps? :eek:

    Agreed. From what I understand its not even that amazing a game. Hell, I'm running TF2 just fine on a 6800GS and a 3700+, and I don't see anything wrong with that BECAUSE THE GAME OWNS.

    crysis really isn't worth spending about £2000 on pc equipment to play, its boring and generic. makes great screenshots and in game movies with fraps but id just cry if i built that pc and then realised that was what id done it for.
