  2. thanks very much looks like i need to save some cash up then jeeze
  3. any for under £100? or am i screwed
  4. For Crysis yes. For about a £100 you could look into GTX260 HD4870/90 or HD5770 they will give you decent fps.
  5. I would also consider the nvidia gtx 9800, i have many people i know who have said they can run almost any game on high settings, and easily run crysis on med settings.
  6. Crysis is the most graphic intensive game in existence by a good margin. It is quite playable on medium settings without AA at reasonable resolution without spending a ton though. For £100 I would get this;

    or for slightly more this;

    For closer to the price of that other card you linked this is much better;

  7. It would be nice to know what monitor/res the OP will be using...

    Here is an updated review for different cards in Warhead :

  8. Yeah, knowing the resolution would be good but specifically for Crysis it doesn't matter as much. You need the most powerful card you can afford and if it doesn't cut it you'll have to lower the resolution and/or settings anyway.
