Specs to run crysis.

Hello, I was planning on purchasing a new 17" alienware laptop and wondering if this would cut it for crysis:
i7 3.33 Turbo Ghz
CrossfireX™ 1GB ATI Radeon™ Mobility HD 5870
17-inch WideUXGA 1920 x 1200 RGB LED (1200p)
8GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1066MHz
640GB Raid 0 (2x 320GB 7,200RPM HDDs)

( that is for very high settings btw. ) is there anything I can downgrade also?

    Dude! no!!! you can downgrade ALOT of that the ram is pointless and so is the raid 0
    if you are trying to save money that is and BTW THIS is a better deal! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834220695&cm_re=asus_laptop-_-34-220-695-_-Product
  2. wow that is impressive ( the link.)
    I was really looking towards alienware though... good reputation
    minus both of those it is about the same price anyway
  3. The alienware is good for playing Crysis. The laptop that zoranzoran points out only has a single 5870 and a slower CPU. Still, I agree that you don't need 8GB of RAM for Crysis even with the 64-bit patches, but it's nice to have if you also run alot of memory intensive programs at once (ie adobe CS). If you're mostly gaming you could also just go with a single 7200 RPM 500GB hard drive. Sure the two drives in RAID 0 preform better, but it won't increase your FPS. If you want to do video editing or something though then RAID 0 makes more sense :D.
