can a 4870x2 handle this?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I already plan to upgrade my video cards, but I'm getting crysis 2 and metro 2033 tomorrow. I just wanted to know how well my card could hold up to these games, because as of now, they are one the most gpu demanding on the market.

probably not on your resolution, maybe on low/medium settings.

Crysis 2 will max out no issues.

Metro 2033 will max out in Dx10 too.

Metro 2033 dies in DX11, it maxes out fine on Dx10.

Crysis 2 will max out on 1080P at 45-60FPS at extreme.

Metro 2033 will max out in non DX11 perfectly assuming it scales correctly.

If the resolution is the same as the monitor in his sig then........

At anyrate he's right. playing at a lower resolution would help, but even upgrading to a single 6950 and unlocking it would do wonders.

I think you'd be fine. The way I see it, you're about the same level as a single 5870, and while you won't max out either game, you can play at medium/some high settings, especially since I remember being able to max crysis at 1080P with no AA/AF w/ CF 4870.

Metro 2033 cound not relly play it all that well with HD 5850 @ 1Ghz which was faster then my old 2 x HD 4870 1GBs. Crysis 2 i am not sure about it. Should be no problem but CF might cause problems and i get 45-60fps with my cad so best HD 4870X2 could do is 35-50fps.

I max everything on 1920x1080.

Your res might tax it a little.

No it wasn't. Unless you were using old-as-hell drivers.
