New setup: will it run Crysis on very high?

Hey just about to put together a new system and was wondering if it will be able to handle crysis at very high. My budget is pretty stretched (from New Zealand so parts are more expensive over here) but so far I'm thinking a i5 750, 4gb ddr3 ram and going for the 5850. I'm probably looking to run it at 1440*900

  1. Should be very playable, but the only way to tell for sure is to try it out. I hope you have other games lined up, since that PC will handle anything you can throw at it, and Crysis probably won't keep you busy for long.
  2. Easily at that resolution - nearly everyone agrees anything above 30 is smooth enough for Crysis and check out the 5850:

    Very High should be fine, and you might even be able to throw in some AA too.

    To echo Herr_Koos, nice rig mate. :)
  3. Tbh i would be supprised if you were able to run crysis on very high even with your set up,its a well known fact that crysis is not coded very well,but all that said with those resolutions you maybe ok.
  4. yes, easily.

    my rig, in my sig can play maxxed ouy at around 25fps. you have a gpu that about the same, but a much better processor. no i play at 1920x1080, so at your resolution ,you should be well above 30fps.

    im also from NZ, i know how annoying it is buying components round here. i feel for ya. bit of advice though, save a ton while the USD is low, and order your 5850 from amazon.com.

    they ship internationaly real cheap, so you can save a bundle.

    good luck on the build. :)

    I'm running Crysis with a single 4890 (my CPU is the i7 860), and I get an excess of frames with the same resolution with 8x Anti-Aliasing and Very High graphics, except when I'm playing the final level, Reckoning
    (although, Reckoning does tend to draw more than any other level, with rain, fire, a constant stream of enemies, etc.)
    .

    A 5850 will have no issues running Crysis on Very High with 8x AA, and I'm game enough to say even Reckoning.
