Ok guys i have ordered my new pc, but i havent ordered the graphics card yet, so check the spec
250gb ide hard drive 3gb of ddr2 800mhz memory Motherboard with 16x pci express Amd athlon x2 6000+ 520watt power supply and a dvd -/+ rw
I was thinkin on the Asus Ati Radeon 3870 with 512mb of gddr4. Will this card run crysis at full blast, imean the best spec avalible, i know people are goin on about the 8800, but its kinda expensive and i was told this would do the job and more, just wanted closure before i spend 140 buck on it, thanks
It should run it fine. I got the demo to run on my poor 7600GS, admitadly I had to turn options off but even then it looked rather good. You can get a 8800GT for the same cash if you go for a 256mb model click here as to which to go for I'm afraid I don't know.
with a core 2 extreme qx6850 at 3.33 2g ddr3 x38 mb 8800gt 40 fps 3870 27 fps this is at 1024x768 no aa. higher res framerates drop even more tests in this months custom pc mag.crysis is a killer I played it with most settings on low except for water and texture on medium and it was ok.
Didn't realise it was quite as bad as it is, I knew it needed a lot but didn't realise it was that extreme. I've got to point out that even if you can't get it running with everything on full it still looks good, obviously the better card you use the better it can get but like all things its down to cost.....
Well guys thanks for all the help, if i can find one cheap enuff i will buy the nvidia 8800gt with 512mb on it, if not ill stick with the radion 3870 with 512mb on it. Anyway thanks for the help, relly showed me some good information
