Hi all, I was wondering how the hd 4350 should fair against crysis. On this website http://cyri.systemrequirementslab.com/srtest/, my computer meets medium settings only to be held back by my crappy celeron e3300 while my videocard passes the required recommended settings. right now I've got that plus the hd 4350 and im getting like 30 max fps on low so i was wondering if thats because of my proc or my GPU? I'm also waiting on the pentium e6500 to arrive, will that increase my performance?

Thanks in advance

Some battles should not be fought and HD4350 vs Crysis is one of them.
Your video card is not meant for gaming and Crysis is by far the most graphic intensive game around. If you are a gamer you'll definitely want a new card. The weakest you should consider is an HD4670 which is a few times more powerful than the HD4350 and reasonably priced. It should be pretty good for low resolution gaming.

Thanks, i've heard my card is not really for gaming lol, how do you think a GT 240 would fair agaist crysis? i've been looking at cards like the hd 4850 which i can only get for under $100 used so what would fair well against that around there new?

Save 60 dollars more, you will be much happier with going with a 4870.

GT 240 will Run it @ high and 1680x1050 no AA. Thats my guess. Maybe 1280x1024 and a lil bit of AA. Atleast if you overclock it. But HD 4850 will do it VERY WELL! It will run very high 1680x1050 no AA or 1280x1024 and 2xAA. Maybe even better.


The whole point of Crysis is the eye candy right? A GT 240 just won't go for that... it WILL play the game...

But there are clearly better values out there in that price range. Most sites are saying avoid this card... not because it's a bad card, but because it's a bad value. For that price? ATI 4850 or even an Nvidia 9800.

Go for 4850 or for 5750 if your budget allows you
Good luck

yeah my mate got an HD 4850 with a sucky dual core CPU and 2 gigs of ram and he runs the card on a low quality 350W psu! So yeah the thing is. He bottlenecks but still he runs crysis high/veryhigh 1680x1050 and SILKY smooth. In my opinion, thats plenty of eye candy.


How does a low-quality PSU even have the required 6-pin?
That is just BS, by sucky dual-core I'm guessing a E4500 or worse, Crysis eats 2 gigs + windows eats 1 gig.

I'm really inclined to believe that's just make-believe.

If your PSU can't handle an HD4850 it still may be able to handle an HD5750 as it uses MUCH less power. It's a better card and might be cheaper than HD4850 + PSU.

The low quality PSU might not have the 6 pin connector, but adapters do exist for that scenario. The molex connectors do have a +12 volt line... that's all the video card would need. Not saying that PSU is going to hold up under that load for a long period of time... but for now, give the guy the benefit of the doubt. I've definitely seen stranger things.

That reminds me, I've seen a guy hook up several (several=several hundred) AAA batteries to the required voltage & tried to push a GTX 280.
It worked.
For 1 min of Crysis.
