You should get GTX480/570/580 or HD6950/6970 2GB card..

CHEERS..

Kind of a silly question I know, since Crysis 2 isn't out yet - but I'm seeing a lot of games coming out that look mighty impressive with all of the eye candy turned on.

Thanks,
What's your current rig pulling on Crysis/Warhead @ 1280x1024???
I would say Crysis 2 will be about 30% harder on hardware than it's predecessors - at a guess.

I haven't tried Crysis Warhead yet, but I guess I should! DirectX 11 is a really good point... And is one card alone gonna be enough with my overclocked CPU? I get the impression that no but that's with my stock CPU. Now that it's bumped up to 3.2GHz any ideas?

Thanks

Your CPU is fine for now
With higher end cards most processing tends to be done on the card as opposed to lower end cards which will put more strain on the CPU (The cpu has to make up for the bad card)

Ahh, OK nice.
So which card?? If I had to pick a brand I would probably go with EVGA because I love their Precision overclocking software.. But it doesn't really matter. Has to be nVidia though

You'll definitely want to try to get more of an overclock on your CPU. The more, the better .

But a single higher end DX11 card SHOULD do it fine.

No. If the CPU is a bottleneck for a low end card, it's even moreso for a high end card. He's at 1280x1024. He needs his CPU as high as possible. Lower resolution means less strain on GPU. But the CPU load is going to be the same.

He cannot play it at all. No DX 11.

a 9800GT couldn't even play Crysis 2 if it had dx11.. dx11 alone would kill it.


Edit: didn't fully read, at your res, you could probably get a really nice low end card and that would do the trick.

For the full effect of Crysis though, you gotta be playing it on 1920x1080 lol.. atleast!

1) Being a fanboy only limits your opportunities but i wont moan...
2) GTX 570 is probably the best bet right now, if you have some spare cash go with the 580

It's not that I'm a fanboy, it's that I have to go with an nVidia card because I'm dual-booting OSX86 on my computer. But I'm not sure if that talk about Mac on PC is for these forums.

I will definitely look into a 570 or a 580! Hopefully that's all it takes to max out the game at 60FPS and at ultra detail.

Deus Ex Human Revolution might be more intensive on the graphics then Crysis 2 as well but we'll just have to wait and see. Right now I'm just looking at all of the games coming out and my jaw is dropping at how amazing they look haha

Heheh, I've gotta upgrade my monitors before I do that. They are only capable of running 1280x1024 - but I don't mind the resolution... makes it easier on the games lol
