  1. ^ Good build except the PSU,...
    And whether it would play Crysis @ Very High depends on the resolution of the monitor that you would be using,...

  2. I suggest swapping CPU from X4 640 to X3 455 and from GTX 460 to 6870. You can unlock the 4th core of CPU if in case u need more from it.

    Also you need to specify which resolution r u gonna be running and wats ur total budget for this build and location?
  3. This isnt doing Crysis at very High at anything over 16x10, dont think ti will be smooth at 16x10 with aa imho

    Well I usually play at 1600x900 and my budget was like $400...

    It's a huge upgrade from my previous system

    CPU: Intel Pentium 4 2.8ghz
    GPU: XFX 9500GT 1gb
    Mobo: ?
    PSU: 350 watt
    OS: windows 7
    Cooling: stock
  5. You will be fine with your specs. I would change the PSU eventually. With the Stock PSU you might want to drop the cost of the CPU to the X3 like stated before and change the GPU to a more energy efficient one.
  6. Where are you affording that for $400 key me in please

    THis si a decent mid-low range build and should handle crysis at 16x10 nicely.

    Well I found the combo deal from Newegg.com it came with EVERYTHING but the GPU and HDD plus the OS

    The GPU is from Tigerdirect.com... Originally 209.99 ( I think) but the price drops $40 with the rebate
  11. I must also mention...My computer now can run Crysis on medium/high but only at a maximum of like 5-20 fps. And that is with a low end 9500gt and a P4 2.8ghz HyperThreaded
  12. ^ USeless post.
  13. Go For The X3 455
