im building my high end pc but i want to play crysis at very high setting.
im wondering if this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
can run at the frame rate of the NVIDIA Geforce 8800 GT 1024 MB in SLI

or what is the best card or best cards that's around 300$ that can run crysis in high setting

The two cards are not that differant, one would run pretty much the same as the other (single card for single card),
You need to define High Settings, Res, Detail,AA/AF etc

If you want to play Crysis at very high settings with any stability, start with a 285GTX and work from there. Anything less has almost no hope with Very High settings.

why is the 8800gt sli run a better frame rate then all the other 9800s

8800GT = 9800GT. After that, it depends on the clocks manufactures used.

I point out, the 8800/9800GT is a good card, but is getting on at this point, and simply doesn't have the muscle for a game like Crysis.

Im playing crysis (the original) everything on very high 1920x1440 no AA@approx 45-50 fps (by fraps) with the cards at 750/1512/1100 (gtx 260 sli)

not true I have amd athlon 64 dual core with 3 gig of memory and a zotac geforce 9800gt over clock ddr3 512 pci-e 2.0 and have crysis on very high and works perfectly, no problems at all, runs smooth. I think my card does better than my ATI hdcard.

Ok first 8800GT's in SLI work beautifully as far as scaling is concerned and this is mainly down to the maturity of the drivers, remember the card has been around for a while now so you would hope they would have it right by now. And by the way i wouldnt go as far as fanboy but i prefer ATI

@ travismontana
You dont mention which athlon 64 dual core or what your screen res etc is and you also dont mention which ATI card you are talking about. As such your statement dosent actually mean anything.
Care to elabourate :)

hmmm dont know about that, in dx9 hacked to very high except with physics, textures and object quality on high, with the natural mod, my 4870 handles it just fine at 1400x900. Oc'd to 800/1050 2xaa is playable with 30fps average, and my subsytem is a bit poo too (e6300@2.8ghz, 3gb ram, xp 32, sluggish 250gb hdd). 1600x1200 with a fast subsystem and a moderately oc'd 4870 1gb or stock gtx216 would do dx9 v.high very very well. What benchmarking sites dont explain is the hit very high physics, textures and choosing dx10 over dx9 makes on average fps. a gtx 285 would be overkill for anything less than 1900x1200.

Well, my 4870x2 runs it at very high, 19x12 with 4xAA. Playable at least to me (30fps avg). However, I rarely go past the entrance to the alien ship if I was to replay it so take that for what you will.

Really? My pair of 4870x2s is only playable at 19x12 with 2xAA to me, with some sections playable at 4x (when I had a single one, it wasn't playable with any AA, though it could do 19x12 very high just fine). Maybe I'm just pickier than you are...

At 4x, it drops as low as 20 in some places, which I find too slow. At 2x, it stays 30+ everywhere, and 40+ in most places. It's playable at 4x in most places, but (especially in the snow region, IIRC) it's under 30fps in a few spots.
