Yes, i did, and by the 15th time i was also quite good at it to and Multiplayer is STILL good imo so from my point of view the future proof thing was quite smart.

Oh wait you can just start to do that now after purchasing 5 different video cards. You just made my point.
1. If I had a 24" or larger LCD, I would
2. The reason behind the upgrades wasn't for Crysis, but power comsumption during idle times as I leave my machine on 24/7. The 8800s pulled full power all the time, the 9600s only when needed as does the GTX260. Only the GTX260 gives me better framerates in all games, not just crysis.
3. Having 2 8800GTs, if you ran Vista 64bit and ran the game in 64bit, you should have been able to play with all settings at high at 1680x1050.
4. The Crysis is still a better game than CoD4.

No. No, imo it is not. I got tired of Crysis half way through the game, especially the zero-gravity part. CoD4 I finished, and still eager to play again. Much better graphics and FPS (due to smaller maps, but still).

Funny, I downloaded COD4 way after I finished Crysis and I feel the exact opposite of you. Crysis was actually a much more free-ing type of game. Cod4 felt like the same ol' linear washed up approach done a million times. There were some neato elements of COD4 which I did like. But once I started shooting and the crosshairs were the worst ever in a FPS game imho. I didn't feel like wasting my time, I really would like my money back too.

I was disappointed by COD4. It's all scripted...so much so that you can just follow your team and do little to nothing. I think they lost their mojo after COD2. The same formula does not yield the same results the second time around. It is just boring.

Crysis was much more fun to me. It wasn' groundbreaking (in gameplay), but it lets you go about the mission any way you want. It doesn't limit you like COD4 does, where...oh you can't go here, a tank is coming, so you must go this way and what do you know...scripted sequence coming up...prepare to do what it tells you in 5 mins or you die.

So do you have to send all this stuff back after you use it and take it to shows? Or is it yours to give away or sell once you no longer need it?

I felt the same way about Crysis... Pretty much Far Cry 1.5 with nice graphics that takes a person through very scripted events. The only thing going for it was the maps were much larger so you felt you could do what you wanted. Oh and it brings most common systems with 24 inch monitors to their knees.
