No. The 4000 Series ATI cards are from 2 generations ago. And the 4300 and 4500 series were not exactly ment for gaming. You need to have a minimum of an ATI 5670 and a minimum of 3 GB of memory to play crysis 2 at the lowest settings.

Your processor is being bottlenecked by your entire system. You need to get 4GB of memory, and in my opinion, at least an ATI 6850 to play the game at a decent frame rate. Also, if you do get those, you will need to install Win7 64-bit. You may also need a new PSU if you decide to upgrade.

Really, you should replace everything but your processor and mobo.

Thanks, but how about this setup? I already got Win 64 bit and 4 gigs of ram

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU 650 @ 3.20GHZ (4CPUs),~3.2GHZ
Video card: Nvidia GTX 550 (I saw this card could run Crysis on the highest settings)
Installed memory (RAM): 4.00GB
Windows 7 64-bit

Should I change anything else? I'm still saving up for t he video card. Oh, and what's mobo? (i'm a noob >_<)

You won't need to change any of that. The GTX 550 will definitely do well.

The "mobo" is the motherboard of a PC. It's that big board inside the computer, which most everything goes into, or is attached to. It is what contains your BIOS, holds the CPU, GPU and RAM. Your HDD also plugs into it. Simply put: it is truely your computer's mother, as it is the very heart of your PC, and brings everything together.

You should not need to replace your mobo, unless it lacks the options you need. In my opinion, I'd only really be concerned if you were wanting to overclock, which you will not need to play those games.

Don't go spending money that you don't have to. Not unless you got enough to throw around.
If you do, throw in my direction, please. :)
