I think you will have problems playing Crysis. Like Jimishtar said, you should buy at least a 4850. You didn't tell us what resolution you will use.

firgive my noobness but i am unsure what resolution i will be playing,i have a small 19 inch monitor and that's as much as i know,i saw a video on you tube of someone playing crysis with the same psu card and duo core pc so i thought i would be able to play too,i am buying the 4850 soon but it might take mea little while to buy it so until then i will use the x1950xt,thank's for your advice

Probably it's 1280x1024 if is not a wide screen. PSU = power supply unit. You are talking about Video card.

Another +1 for a new GPU. The 1950 will suffice temporarily, but will limit you greatly to play those games.
