Hello,
just wondering if my rig could run Crysis 2 at max settings specs are
Intel core i7 2600 quad core 3.4
4gig ram D3
MSG rad-eon Hd 6790 storm 2 1gig
August 13, 2011 5:53:03 PM

MSI radeon HD 6790*

Crysis 2 is very demanding on maximum with DirectX11. Your CPU is fine, but your graphics card probably will not be able to handle it unless you are playing at a very low resolution. The minimum card to max out Crysis 2 without Anti-Aliasing at 1080p is the GTX 570. The minimum to max out the game at 1280x1024 would be a GTX 460 1GB, at 1680x1050 a 6970 is the minimum. Your card is weaker than any of these, maybe if you ran the game at 800x600 you might be able to barely get an acceptable framerate at maximum settings without Anti-Aliasing. If you want to max out Crysis 2, you're probably going to need a Graphics Card upgrade.

you may crossfire your 6790 with another one so you can play crysis 2 at 1080p with dx 11 and all maxout .. just saying .

Your card is fine at 1680 x 1050

At 800 x 600 : 166 fps
At 1024 x 768 : 113 fps
At 1366 x 768 : 84 fps
At 1920 x 1080 : 30 fps

This is with reference to the chart that can be seen here

At 800x600 : Anything above 6450 is fine
At 1024 x 768 : Anything above 6450 is fine
At 1366 x 768 : Anything above 5670 is fine
At 1920 x 1080 : Even the 550Ti is fine

IMO max means 1920x1080. Anything under you arent experiencing the true potential of your GPU. If I played at 1366x768 im sure i would have no problem completely maxing out any game @ 60+, but it wouldnt be MAX imo because of the resolution.

When he said he wanted to max out the game, I operate under the assumption that includes the DX11 patch and the Ultra settings patch. Without DX11 and the Ultra settings, the requirements are quite lower, a 6790 probably could just barely max out Crysis 2 at 1680x1050 using the graphics options the game originally shipped with.

Definitley the DX11 patch and the textures patch make a huge difference

On 1920x1080 DX9 I can play Hardcore with my HD 5670 OCd heavily

with DX11 I would be really lucky to get 1280x1024
though I havent tried yet

not downplaying your performance, but rather giving a comparison for OP.... My 925 @3.3 ghz, 8g of DDR3 1333OC to 1572, and GTX 570 OC runs it playable with a few hitches every now and then, but totally playable anywhere from 35-45/50 fps. A 6790 shouldnt be running it " just fine" with DX11; The DX9 just as everyone else has stated is not very demanding compared to the DX11 which made my system work harder for the fps. your 6790 should run the game as shipped no problem maxed but with the DX11 patch you might have to tone a few things down. the ambient occlusion mapping and tesselation are torture for even the latest hardware.

I 100 percent agree
the difference between playing DX9 and DX11 is a major difference
My HD 5670 is great at DX9 games but with DX11 it can barely play at lowest resolutions
so a HD 6790 will be awesome at DX9 and can play DX11 with some of the settings lowered

It would also be a good Idea not to have any wallpaper in the back ground.Wallpaper can use quite a bit of Ram and graphics power.

Hopefully you are running 64 bit Windows to utilize that extremely overkill amount of ram. With gaming that ram wont do much after 6. And also don't worry about wallpaper; that's just an asinine statement about it using graphical power and ram to have a background pic
