Crytek specs a budget machine for Crysis

Crysis is a demanding game, that much even my Grandma knows - and she hasn't been keeping up on the gaming front either these last few years because of her arthritis.

One of the main problems which seems to have been plaguing the game lately has been the high level hardware required to run the game on high settings. Most gamers don't want to run it at any less than high, but can't run it at anything close to that level.

Never fear though, Crytek has come to the rescue and put together a basic hardware specification which the team claims will run the game on High settings without breaking the bank (albeit at 1280x720 - Ed.). Check out the machine specs below.

CPU - Intel Core2Duo E6750
GPU - GeForce 8800 GT 512MB
Motherboard - Nvidia nForce 650i Socket 775
PSU - 600W ATX12V
RAM - 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit
HDD - SATA 250GB 7200RPM
DVD - 20x DVD±R Burner
Case - ATX Midi Tower Computer Case
OS - Microsoft Windows XP Home with SP2
1280x720, lol.

My monitor is 4x that resolution, so it would look terribly pixelated to me

my brother's old 939 system with a GTS runs it at 1280X1024 on almost all high settings.

getting it to run nice and smooth isn't rocket science. buy the cheapest barebones computer you can, get a good PSU, 2 gigs of ddr2 800 and as expensive as a video card that you can.

I don't see why there's so much confusion with speccing out a machine for crysis... hell go out and get a 775 socket E-machine from walmart, get a new power supply and a 8800 ultra. The end.
