Benchmark Results: Crysis

System Builder Marathon: TH's $2000 Hand-Picked Build

Yes, these machines can all play Crysis. But you’re going to want one of the expensive systems to play it at 2560x1600. That’s also the setting where the original $2000 PC’s GeForce GTX 480 graphics are finally able to outperform the alternative build’s half-priced cards, despite the original PC’s greater CPU bottlenecks.

The problem for the older PC is, of course, the fact that it only excels at super-high resolutions. Perhaps the only “fair” way to compare low-cost to high-end systems would be to include Nvidia Surround- or AMD Eyefinity-based configurations?
