Hey guys I just found this Pc on the HP website and was wondering what graphics it could run crysis on?
My specs are:
Operating system Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit edit

Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-980X six-core Extreme Edition [3.33GHz, 1.5MB L2 + 12MB shared L3 cache] edit

Memory 9GB DDR3-1066MHz SDRAM [5 DIMMs] edit

Hard drive 640GB 7200 rpm SATA 3Gb/s hard drive edit

Graphics card 1.8GB NVIDIA Geforce GTX 260 [2 DVI, HDMI and VGA adapters] edit

Primary optical drive LightScribe 16X max. DVD+/-R/RW SuperMulti drive edit

Networking Integrated 10/100/1000 (Gigabit) Ethernet, No wireless LAN edit

Front Productivity Ports 15-in-1 memory card reader, 1 USB, 1394, audio edit
TV & entertainment experience No TV Tuner edit

Sound Card Integrated 7.1 channel sound with front audio ports edit

Speakers 20% OFF! Logitech X-540 5.1 stereo speakers edit

Keyboard and Mouse HP multimedia keyboard and HP optical mouse

I havent brought a screen yet but lets just say its a HP w1858 18.5-inch 16:9 HD Ready Widescreen Monitor

Just to say this comes to a purchase of $2,249.98 even with that processor it is the HPE190t series

the HP monitor you stated is only 1366 x 768 native resolution, you can run the game easy on that with very high graphic settings

i would suggest you get a better monitor though

LEts just say that i could run the game on the highest resolution would i still be able to play crysis on enthusiast settings? Could this monitor run a good resolution HP 2709m 27-inch Diagonal 16:9 Full HD Widescreen Monitor? Also thanks for the fast reply!

THATS A BEAAAAAAST SYSTEM. But its retail. I mean its HP. I would go custom, with some cool cases. but its up to u. go for 2 screens

the GTX 260 is a very good card but you could probably get more for your money if you just bought a card off newegg
April 17, 2010 2:25:28 AM

how would i know which cards would be compatible with my system?
April 17, 2010 3:46:11 PM

KK look. The 260 is amazing. But for the price or a BIT higher u can get a 5850 or 5770, and usually RETAIL computers have reallly crappy power supplies. I think i would find thousands of people that would prefer custom over HP OR DELL or such crap. Sorry lol.

NP do you recommend anywhere to buy parts for a custom pc? My parents keep on saying it will be a good experience so maybe that is the way I will go................... Thanks

or would u guys say that this computer is better?

It is cheaper however doesnt have the really good processor. Does teh graphics card make up for it. (assuming it has a better card)



The only better quad core out there is the Core i7 975 EE. The Core i7 960 is a beast in the quad core world

The HD 5870 is almost double the speed of the GTX 260, AND it has DX11 support, 40nm, less power hungry etc.

It up to you. The GTX 260 will do a very good job with Crysis, and if you want to upgrade in the future to the world's fastest GPU's and do tri or quad SLi/Xfire, then better get the PC with the i7 980x. Bu i say get the PC with the i7 960 and HD 5870 and you won't have headaches for any game at least another 3-4 years and will play all the upcoming games in Full HD (if you have the monitor:) )

If you are buying this for gaming you are overpaying. Mainly because of the CPU, its overkill.

You could get the same exact gaming performance for around $1000 less.

I suggest finding a system with i7 920, i7 930, i7 860, or i5 750, and a couple 5870s. It'll cost about the same and you'll get at least a 100% increase in gaming performance.

Ok guys will do thankyou so much for all the support. Do u guys recommend any motherboards which will support these things as I am planning on just custom building as the pc mentioned doesnt give u the choice of picking these

Best solution

If you only plan on using this comp for gaming(or anything that uses 4 threads or less) it would be much cheaper to get a core i7 930.
The GTX 260 would probably be able to play crysis at 1920X1080 on enthusiast settings with 20fps(my 280 only gets about 25fps at those settings). A 5850/5870 setup would be much better for gaming + you get DX 11 :D  .
