Everyone should make a special note of the 4850 and the 4870 :)

That would entirely depend on your resolution. Chances are you won't be able to max the settings and play with playable frame rates.

I'm not quite sure what that last reply said, but assuming you have Windows XP (as your profile states), you would be limited to "High" settings. The max settings for Crysis (known as "Very High") are only available under Vista and DirectX10 (though a partial work-around is available for DirectX9 and XP, from what I understand). Anyways, my point is that a 9800GTX should be able to handle Crysis at "High" at just about any resolution (except perhaps extremely astronomical resolutions like 2560x1600 and above... and, of course, depending on the competency of your other components), as long as you are not using any anti-aliasing (low amounts may be possible on small resolutions). However, a similarly priced HD4850 should perform even better, and that's what I'd recommend (as does the most recent Tom's Hardware guide posted by James). :)

EDIT: I re-read your first post a couple times and I think it says that you already own the 9800GTX. I want to clarify that I do not recommend going out and buying the HD4850 as an upgrade to the 9800GTX. I was recommending it in the case that you did not own a graphics card and were deciding on a new one. In that case, the HD4850 is an easy pick, but in your case it does not offer enough of a performance increase to warrant an upgrade from a 9800GTX.
