I ordered a Dell XPS 8100 yesterday.
Intel® Core i5-650 processor(4MB Cache, 3.20GHz)
8GB DDR3-1066 RAM
1TB 7,200RPM Hard Drive
16x DVD±RW Drive
ATI® Radeon™HD5770
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)

I was planning to buy it for 3ds max, unreal, etc, and I thought maybe it could run Crysis. My problem is that I checked the order status only to find that my new computer will come with a 1024MB nVidia GeForce GT220 graphics card instead of the ATI® Radeon™HD5770. I personally do not know much about graphics cards, and need an opinion on which graphics card is better for playing Crysis in order to change the order or not. I have seen youtube videos with the radeon playing on high performance but have not seen any with the nVidia GeForce GT220. Which card would you recommend? Will this computer be able to play crysis on high settings? Thanks.

they totally ripped you off, the gt220 is a sh*t card and penforms nowhere near a 5770.

also the 5770 is $150 while the gt220 is $70. and no, it will not play crysis.

Yeah, the 220 is a really *** card and will get nowhere near high performance in modern games. the 5770 would have been a decent mid-range card, but the 220 is a big NONO!
