I just got everything on the mail today all the PC components but i still need a graphics card and i was wondering if crysis 2, the witcher 2 and hitman absolution will be able to play on the integrated graphics which is a intel HD3000 my specs are:

Core i5 2500k 3.3 GHz NOT overclocked

8GB corsair dominator platinum 1866MHz

Asus sabertooth z77

Thermaltake smart m750w

intel HD3000

720p Samsung TV


I will be mostly playing Crysis 2 and FC3 Should i buy the GTX 660 whats gonna take to get crysis 2 running at 60FPS maxed out or should i go for the GTX 670

No, it will not be playable with a intel hd 3000 even at low resolutions, if you want a card that gets ~60 fps maxout, you better get the 670 gtx.

No, the main purpose of the intel HD 3000 is Qsync feature for encoding videos and for playing HD videos...etc,,,not meant for gaming at all

You don't need a 670 to max the game @720p. The 660 is more than enough.

Then for 720p, yes the 670 will be overkill, a single 7850 1GB or 660 gtx will do.

correct me if i'm wrong but the graph posted above is not @ "maxed-out" quality.

Crysis 2 is not really all that demanding and @ a low resolution of only 720 just do yourself a favor and get yourself a GTX 660 non ti or 7850 from AMD Radeon.

Those tests were made at 1280x800 dx11 ultra+high-res texture pack.

Yes, it could. You can lower the resolution to 640x480 or 800x600 and set the graphics detail to Low. It will probably run on 20-30 FPS.

just get a 660 Ti and you'll be good with Crysis 2 and okay w/ Crysis 3

techpowerup's 800p test are done @2xAA. assuming we "maxed out" means different from what i know then i would agree with you.

also there are driver level enchancements that are switched off during 1280x800.. check tpu's testing methodology.

again im saying this based on the requisite of running the game "maxed-out"

even the 660ti would cry once you crank things max.

i tested Crysis 2 on my core i7 2600k (HD3000). it works on minimum res.
but i'm thinking of 660 or 660Ti.

is it possible to give math for my CPU (i7) and graphics to GPU (660) ? i think that'll give some boost

Yes Crysis 2 will..... i had playing it on intel hd graphics 3000....(my specs:Intel i5 2310(so of course intel hd 3000), 8GB(4+4) RAM, DH61WW motherboard , and NO GRAPHICS CARD!!!) Yet i can play the game on settings such 1024 X 768 resolution, with v sync and full screen ON and system spec at GAMER(default settings on such a system) since u have similar to mine(or perhaps better) specs you should be able to play the game.

It will be at playable graphics but you have to skip the inter mission videos cause they gets distorted(at least for me)...

I donot know about FC2 cause i had never tried it out....yet i would recommend to get a graphics card for even future games as intel hd won't do for long...
