Depending on your other hardware components, you would be pushing it if you have all the settings on "high". There's simply no one card that can really run Crysis as it's intended to look at the moment (at least not for the price of the 8800 you posted.) Nvidia should be releasing the geforce 9 cards in February of this year but it'll be the lower end versions of the card first. I believe the g100 chip series comes out in March or so and that should definitely be able to run Crysis as it was intended to be ran... I hope...

Also, I would ditch that processor for something like this if you're going with a dual core. If you want quad core (recommended) a good "cheap" solution would be this processor.

Canorro, next time try using the edit button instead of posting 4 times in a row in rapid succession (including 2 basically identical posts). Thanks.

Also, even at low resolutions the CPU would be enough of a bottleneck to probably not allow the game to be played on High. Perhaps if physics and post processing were turned to low it might be possible, but I don't know. A member here, Jackflash, had a Pent D 3ghz and he could only play on low... not sure what res though.

Crysis has the most powerful game engine ever seen in a commercial video game, and as such it requires some pretty hefty hardware to run smoothly, especially at higher settings.

lol... sure it can run the game. However, you would be far better off investing in a dual core system with at least 2gigs of ram or more. Not only would you enjoy it more, but you would have some longevity to your system.
