Thumbs up PC Zone loves Crysis Warhead.

This is a summary of a magazine review:
http://www.computerandvideogames.com....php?id=196747

They said that most of the complaints with Crysis have been addressed and its "the finest burst of action gaming released so far this year".

They gave it a 92%.

I really enjoyed Crysis myself (except for the last 2 suck-ass levels) so I'll definitely be grabbing this. I still want a video card upgrade though...

Not sure yet.

Not really satisfied with the options available. 4870x2 has the performance I want but I'm not buying a multi-gpu setup.

I guess I'll be waiting a while.

Guys, you need to rid yourselves of this multi-GPU hate. Things have come a long way since the 7950GX2.

What was that, like 3 years ago?

I can't speak for SLI this gen, but Crossfire has been perfect in just about every game I have tried thus far. Even with 4 GPUs I get no more lag than I do on a single card. And just about every game I have tried has scaled in a big way. I've tried around 20-25 different titles, and the only two that haven't scaled at all were Two Worlds and Witcher. Witcher ran at 75fps average on a single GPU already, and Two Worlds, well, .. that game just sucks.
