Building a computer to play Crysis will it run?

Hi all, I'm building a new computer soon and I want to play Crysis and max settings. (Resolution will be 1920x1200)
CPU: Intel i5 3.4 GHz
RAM: 8GB
GPU: Radeon HD 4890 (1GB)

Will it run Crysis max settings average +30FPS? :wahoo:


I assume it would run it easily, but everyone makes mistakes. :??:

  1. If you mean the original Crysis then yes you will get around average 30 FPS maxed. On Crysis 2 your looking at more like 25FPS average maxed.
  2. No, it won't. I had an ATI 5850 which is a good bit stouter than the 4890, and I often struggled to stay above 30, and that was at 2X AA....so not truly maxed by any means.

    Even my GTX570 drops down into the 30's on Crysis....quite often.
  3. Yeah, not gonna happen with the 4890... not maxed out with 30+ fps anyway.
  4. Why build a new PC with a 4890??

    A single 5850 played the game on High 2xMSAA fine, not Very High. Two 5850s did Very High at around 60... so, yeah.

    You need something more powerful than a 4890. To run Crysis on Very High with no AA I would recommend a Radeon HD 6870 at minimum, that will get you about 30 to 40FPS at your resolution. With AA, the 6870 will probably drop below 30FPS a little too often for comfort. If you want AA, you're going to want to aim higher, get something like a Radeon HD 7850 or GTX 570.
  6. Keep in mind that Warhead is easier to run than Crysis.

  8. Thanks for the replys! Will the 4890 run it with 2xAA and AF? Tell me what settings I would have to put it on for it to stay above 30 FPS. (If possible)

    You might be able to run it on "high" settings with both in-game AA and motion blur turned off. You can use the much cheaper edge AA via a console command (you just hit the tilde key "~" at the start menu and the console pops up, then you can type r_UseEdgeAA=2.

    The edge-AA actually does a pretty good job on the vegetation.

    Thank you for replying once again! Thanks for the info ^_^ I'm sticking with the 4890 for a while after the computer but I'm going to upgrade after that to a 6970 2GB. Think that would have any problems with max settings?
