Thats not going to run Crysis on high settings with 500 euro. Increase your budget you can drop the 460 and move up to a GTX 570 to get close. Also your CPU could go to a Core i3-540 for that price range and overclock it. $15 more for i3 and save some extra money for your GPU if you want to game that high. What resolution are you at? What motherboard are you using?AMD or Intel?
