4870X2 or 4870 1Gb + 22in TFT?

One final question.

I'm gaming on a 17in TFT @ 1280x1024 which i'm quite happy with. I'm just about to upgrade a new system so do I buy:-

1 4870X2 or
1 4870 1Gb + 22in display?

I want the best possible performance, although i do understand a 4870X2 is wasted a little @ 1280x1024. How will games in particular Crysis play @ 1680 x 1050 on a 4870? I really want to play on max settings.

  1. You will be able to play Crysis @ Enthusiast with no filters on. I have a 8800 GT at the moment and I can play crysis 1440x900 @ Enthusiast with no filters getting an average of 30 fps.
  2. right !

    go for the 4870 1gb

    if you can affort a 4870X2, go for it ;) still better ;) but the 4870 is enough atm
  3. mmm, sounds good. Is enthusiast DX10 settings as I've not seen those settings on DX9?

    Also you quoted an average of 30fps. I really want an absolute minimum of 25fps or it just ruins it for me.
  4. a 4870 will run fine at this res. Maxed and with filter i think u should do over 30fps
  5. DAmn ppl!! What's wrong with you all and this game??? I finished both crysis games and I must say I was highly disappointed! The gameplay and story and the finish, such big time in both games. Only the graphics and the hype save this game from being in the 1.99$ basket. Snap out of it!!! There are much better games out there!

    Well I only bought Crysis 3days ago and am mightly impressed. I also bought FarCry2 about 2 weeks ago and much prefer Crysis. Crysis is still a very good shooter even underneath the gloss. Just my opinion.
  7. This is a personnal thing....

    Im not in love with Crysis, but the Graphics is stunning !

    I still better love play COD4 or even TeamFortress2 ! but i keep play Crysis often.
