You might get 20fps max at 1080

Maxed out settings?
At what resolution are you playing at?
That will determine the FPS rates. That system is a good one with the GTS 450 only being the mid-range part of that PC. The rest of the specs seems high-end. :)

I haven't played it yet. I'm looking to buy. I already knew I would have to get another graphics card, but I want to make sure I can play it maxed out before I make a permenent decision.

This isn't very helpful. You will not be able to max out Cryis 2 with a GTS 450.

You also havn't answerd an important question which has been asked which was, what resolution do you play at, or in other words what resolution is your monitor?

I would like to have at least 30 frames, and I'm shopping for a PC not the game. I know if it can run Crysis 2 or BF3 I'll be fine.

Like I have said before you will not max out Cryisis 2 or BF3 with 30fps @ 1080 with a GTS 450.

You will get 30fps however by using either lowered settings or a lower resolution.

Benchmarks available on this link:

Waxy is right in that you'll probably average 30FPS with a 560GTX Ti. That said, you'll get the occassional FPS drop (i know, i've got that videocard). As for BF3, you won't be able to run max settings with it either. I play on High Settings and my rig really starts to struggle when I play on Huge Maps. Just a little FYI. But for the price, it's the king of its category.

At 1080i, I'm not sure you'll be able to max out the game with a GTS 450. You'll get playable FPS, but just not a constant 60, if that was what you were expecting..

Yeah, that's true.
Here's a video on youtube.

He's playing it at 'gamer' spec. So you're right about the OP, getting 20FPS maxed out. I suggest he turn down the settings then. :)

yeah, no DX11 for you with the 450, it still looks good in dx9 though

^What do you mean Flint? :) 

Here's another video on youtube with the GTS 450 running with the DX11 patch and high res textures at 1080p. Looks okay.

The tesselation and occlusion in the dx11 pack is extremely taxing even for my 570; I doubt there wont be moments of extreme slideshows with a 450, if he can put up with the slowdown at parts here and there then I guess.

He can turn down the resolution then, if the OP would want to play with DX11 on..

Very true but all those high res textures would be a waste imo without full resolution, but totally doable for op if he doesn't mind that option

I know that I wouldn't mind running at low resolutions. :D

no dont... you will just have 2 crap cards instead of 1... if your buying a new system then forget the 960 as theres no upgrade path for it at a reasonable price... go for a 2500k or a new 2011 socket at least that way you can if you want get an ivy bridge cpu(not that you will need it to play games) and have 2 years of available upgrades till the 1150 socket arives with haswell. as for gfx wait till next month when nvidia release there new gpu range you may score a 10% discount on the older gtx570 which is a stonkingly good card. especially if you can get 50 notes or so off.
