$653 Machine Specs:

* Shuttle SG31G2S Barebone case : $234.99
* Intel Pentium E2180 2.0Ghz Dual Core CPU : $69.99
* Samsung SH-S203B DVD Burner : $26.99
* Hitachi Deskstar 7K160 160 GB hard drive : $44.99
* A-Data 2GB DDR SDRAM : $45.99
* MSI Geforce 8600GT 512MB videocard : $88.99
* Microsoft Windows Vista 32-Bit Home Premium : $109.99
(This is aimed at Crytek, not the OP)

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.

Well since they replaced Very High textures to actually equal Medium textures in Warhead, hell yeah I believe that frame rate.

Read my fingers: Optimization=We Lowered the Detail Standards

Huh?
The shown screenshots of Warhead are blurry and it is obvious they run at high settings. No colorgrading is visible to begin with!

What annoys me the most is not this marketing bs, but it's this "microsoft live" logo on the top of the dvd cover of crysis warhead

It says you will be able to achieve 30-35 FPS, not sustain them...
