You should be able to run it at fairly pleasing detail levels, but don't expect it to be extremely smooth. Crysis 1 wasn't terribly well optimized and still brutalizes modern computers. It'll definitely be playable.
How about crossfiring the 7770, any difference there? Ive read that by doing that its eqivalant to a 7970, which is a good card but not the best. Also ive been hearing about problems with running it on Win7, how do? Lol, btw i love this forum site, its been nothing but helpful so i wanna thank everyone for their responses.
I found the problem with Crysis 1 to be lack of vram. 1gig wasn't enough to run the game smoothly. Crysis 2 won't be similar. It'll be tougher on the cards and then you need to add in DX11 which I think the first game wasn't.
Some of you people seem to forget that Renegade is gaming at 1600x900, not 1680x1050. Big difference! The 7770 will get you buy but its not a 7970, it costs $300 less. What do you expect. At that resolution a 7970 would be a complete waste of money, anyway.
The benchmark above says 29 fps at 1680x1050. Don't forget: It was run at very high settings, 4x anti aliasing and at higher resolution than the OP. It will definitely be playable on high settings at your native resolution, don't worry OP!
Currently i havw the following rig
Amd fx 4100 3.60ghz

Coolermaster thunder 600w psu
Coolermasrer elite 311 case
Asus monitor 1336x768 and i might play some games at 1280x720
Can u tell me the best card for.my pc.under 430 dollars that can max out or play games on high ... thanks
Shows crysis 2 running at 30 fps. Id imagine the original crysis running at a similar fps.
30 fps is just playable for a fps but i'm sure the minimum fps probably dipped into the teens.
I dis agree with this reply even tho this is an old post I have the 7770 I get High settings on on Crysis 3 at around 1600 res I don't know the FPS but it runs smooth this is a great entry level card Crysis is a demanding game Id say my fps are around 30-40 so that is good for me this card does a good job for the price My gt 630 2gb would run Skyrim High settings 1080 at around 20-30 fps the 7770 was a big Jump now get 40 -50 fps Ultra setting in Skyrim and I get around 30 FPS Ultra BF3 I would compare the 7770 to the gtx 550 TI since they both perform the same in my comparison as I own them both and they are round the same price and the 550Ti is a last gen card
