1680x1050 at maximum will do just fine, heck I play it at that res and 2xAA Very High on my 4890 (a fast Phenom II 955 @ 3.8GHz is also in the combination).

It will play both games fine as long as you do not have xAA enabled.

Once you turn the eye-candy ( xAA ) on your frames will decrease substantially.

Well that was the case with older cards. My 4890 gets nearly no performance hit with 2xAA, and 4850's will do substantially better.

Yea but 2xAA is nothing....

If you want to see a real difference in detail you need to raise the xAA quite a bit....

4850's are less powerful than the 4890's. I think you were thinking about the 5850's being more powerful.

I think he meant dual 4850's in CF ......

Yeah, I have one 4890 and two 4850's would be quite a bit more powerful. It's a misunderstanding ;)

Yeah... I misunderstood... 4850's in Crossfire would be more powerful than one 4890.

i have the exact same as you, except only one 4850 (upping to a 5870), 4gb 1066mhz ram (not much of a difference), and my 940 is oc'd to 3.5. i get about 20-25fps on crysis with max settings, and around 30 on crysis warhead with max. Id say youd get about 10-15 more

farcry will max all the way out, but crysis will play at medium

MEDIUM??? Duuuudeee... 1680x1050 will be playable with Very High and some AA. Above will get slightly choppy. But MEDIUM? How misinformed are you dude? My friend's 9600GT plays it on High no problems and he has a petty 5000+.

I play @ 1680x1050 and with all settings on high (Enthusiast) Crysis Warhead no xAA I can get anything between low 40's to high 80s depending on if I am in battle blowing everything up or just looking at a tree with no action whatsoever. Now that does not mean that it won't get choppy here n there, the 9600GT on a +5000 cannot do Crysis on High with out some lag here n there, it just happens.....

I play at 3.8Ghz with a GTX 260 slightly overclocked and I still lag, just like when I play GTA4.... You need a monster of a PC to play a smooth game of that type....

Dx9 mode, windows XP, a few hold ups here and there but for the most part buttery smooth.
