  2. Sounds good. Will it be able to run Crysis 3 at Med settings?
  3. This will probably max it.
  4. I think that setting should be able to max Crysis 3 looks pretty good for the money.
    If you need an operating system too though it will be like $100 more.

    What resolution is your monitor? At 1080p, a 7950 should have no problems at all.
