Benchmark Results: Crysis
It doesn't make much sense to test the $500 machine at 2560x1600, since a 30" screen costs at least two times what the PC itself would run. More likely is that a gamer would buy a value-oriented system for resolutions of up to 1680x1050. And that's where we see this system show most competitively.
The $1000 build performs admirably up to 1920x1080 at our higher Crysis settings, stumbling only slightly at the $200 machine’s 2560x1600 target resolution.
