I don't know about you, but I like to use a power supply for these computers. The included 250W likely isn't going to power an 8600GT. Oh, and a keyboard, mouse, speakers, and monitor would be nice too. Don't tell me it can run on a $650 PC, but then conveniently leave out half the required equipment.
And where are these optimizations for Crysis? In the 1.3 patch they bailed on? Screw em. Devs like this are cash cows, let them follow EA to consoles, as they give PC devs a bad name.
