There was someone who posted the parts from newegg to make a machine that could run crysis on high with a lower resolution for 400 bucks. What were the parts again. the thread is outdated

I can't seem to get that link to work could you just put up the links 2 the individual parts as it would only take a minute or two.

crysis really isn't a great game.... unless you're anti-korean and get a kick out of killing koreans.

Whether or not its a great game is quite simply a matter of opinion. I happened to love the game when I played it. In fact, it is still on my top ten list of best FPS of all times.

Also, I agree, your link doesn't work. It just leads to my empty shopping cart.

Ok sry guys, this should work.

Pretty fast rig for the money...

Edit: add a cheap Dvd rom, or bring one over from another computer

nice cheap system... if i were going cheap though i'd go w\ an amd am2 setup, drop at least 40-50 off that $431 total (-35 for rebates) - great build actually, after i looked at the parts again. I'd recommend shelling out another $60 and getting an e7200 instead of the 2200.

I would sell my old computer for $355 w\ 1gb ram (i pulled the 4gb and put it in my new office cpu) and an 80gb hard drive.

amd 6400+ w\ zalman 9500
hd 3870 512 gddr4
gigabyte ga-ma69vm-s2 mobo
gigabyte poseidon case w\ 550w psu

I'm intersted in what you could build on the AMD side...Maybe I'll do another dry run on an AMD platform if I get bored.

$376.95... used different components then you though.

and of course this is just newegg pricing. There are other sources for bargains like ebay and craigslist... I got my case for my newest build off craigslist, like-new still in the box for $50 and it retails for $159. guy had built his system and decided it was way too big of a case for him.

I'm at odds w\ this thread though.... a "crysis" computer....

you're not going to run it on very high settings w\ anything less than a $1500 computer. if you really care about all the extra resolution and such.

i put it in very high and it let me know how real fast that my 6400+ w\ 3870 and 4gb ram still wasn't enough to rock it.

i didn't bother installing on my 9450 because i find the idea of benchmarking w\ a lame game to be pointless. everybody isn't going to be running crysis on high settings all the time, so it shouldn't be a basis from which to build a computer you're going to be using for alot of other tasks.

In directX9 and a small monitor it might work. I like your build, the only problem I see is the vid card has a 128bit bus as opposed to the 256 on my build, that card is a lot slower.
August 14, 2008 5:32:02 PM

oh.. i didn't look at specs, i was going w\ cheap ^^ i saw ddr3 and was assuming 256

Hah,I actually thought...hmm...DANG NORTH KOREAN TURRURISTS!

One of my sub 400 dollar rigs could handle 1280x1024..and that was made a long time ago.
August 18, 2008 1:19:39 AM

None of you posted cheap monitors, speakers, mice, keyboards, or even OSes lol

all of that is probably atleast 150 dollars more at the VERY least
August 19, 2008 1:15:18 AM

just wondering, how do you guys plan to install the game?
August 19, 2008 11:10:41 AM

What are you talking about?
August 19, 2008 1:22:18 PM

skullfire, thats simple... most people use headphones, already have keybard, mouse and monitor.

and i thought operating systems were free..?

and back on topic.... i pity anybody who buys a computer specifically to play crysis.
August 20, 2008 4:30:52 AM

I pity you. Stop bashing crysis already, and being so damn negative.
August 20, 2008 1:38:25 PM

crysis just isn't a good game. its got no replay value at all. it should be free to download.
August 22, 2008 4:49:21 AM

lolz, may be i should play the game, i dont like korean. j/k...lolz
