Crytek specs a budget machine for Crysis
Check it out here
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.
