  1. What exactly is lower resolution?
  2. most likley crt res @ 8x6 or 10x7
  3. This rig is slightly more than 400.00USD, but will run Crysis in DX9 pretty well, at resolutions at or higher than you stated. This build also is capable of upgrades, as the gigabyte board is of good quality.
  4. 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.

  5. crysis really isn't a great game.... unless you're anti-korean and get a kick out of killing koreans.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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.

  10. $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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  15. 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
  16. just wondering, how do you guys plan to install the game?
  17. What are you talking about?
  18. 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.
  19. I pity you. Stop bashing crysis already, and being so damn negative.
  20. crysis just isn't a good game. its got no replay value at all. it should be free to download.
  21. lolz, may be i should play the game, i dont like korean. j/k...lolz
