Hello guys, its been a long time since i last posted to the community. I plan on becoming more active once again. I'd like to re-initiate my activity with a question: Should i be able to run Crysis 3 on Max settings in 1920x1080 with my current specs?
PSU: Zephyr MX 750w 80+ bronze
CPU: i5-2500k @ 4.2 GHz
Heatsink: Hyper 212 evo+
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7950 MSI Twin Frozr III's in 2 way crossfire @ 900/1203
MOBO: Biostar TZ77B
HDDs:WDCB 500GB 7200rpm
Seagate Momentus XT 500GB SSD+HDD Hybrid
Case:CM Storm Trooper
Monitors: 3x Acer 23' LCD monitors in eyefinity (i only play C3 in 1920x1080, which disables the other 2 monitors)

I feel like i should be able to easily run the game on max with these specs, but seeing as the game has just come out and AMD normally has to update drivers and release application profiles, i see that as being a major factor. Its playable but not at a steady framerat, there are many fps drops and the fps is choppy alot. What do you guys think? is my rig strong enough? or do you think i need to wait until they update the graphics drivers/app prof's?

Thanks,
Unlongo

I played the beta with a Gigabyte 7950, all settings on "Very High" (the highest) and 2x SMAA with an easy 60fps. I couldn't handle anything more in terms of AA, 8xMSAA was too much for me to call playable. Since you have two 7950's, I'm sure you will be fine, and later drivers will improve performance too.

I have a Sapphire 7950, 1080p resolution, and I was able to play the beta on very high with a consistent 30 fps. Maybe I had my AA too high or something, but it just stayed at 30.

Yea you would be fine with a crossfire setup. google some benchmarks. A single 7950 can handle very high
