Just ordered my 7970, might need to take a second look at my i5-2500K though – maximum eye candy or go home!


will be interesting to see how Crysis 3 compares between PC, 360 and ps3. the consoles are getting 7 years old, and Crysis games typically demonstrate the latest in graphical engines, and don’t have a reputation for pegging PC quality at console levels.


Welp just upgraded my processor so it’s nice and safe. Got enough RAM. Just need to upgrade the graphics card and I’m all set. Nice! (not sure I actually want to buy the game though…)


LOL i5 2500K is fine. Only advantage of 2600K/2700K is the Hyperthreading and a wee bit more cache. i5 2500 will be fine though.

Personally my gfx card is lacking so waiting for the new 8000 cards to release before diving at 7970 Ghz edition or 8970 when it arrives. My 3930K X79 platform should do the trick though CPU wise :D


My i7-950 has served me well………


Hi-performance PC ready!


my 2500k and 580 played the alpha pretty smooth all on High from memory. I don’t have any plans to upgrade, will wait & see what next years GPU’s bring.


I make the cut for all of it but Origin ^_^


I’m sure my new i7 920, 12GB RAM and soon to be purchased Gigabyte 660Ti OC will be able to handle it. :P


i7 3770k @ 4.18, and a GTX660Ti.
We’ll see

Ralph Wiggum

I might go 580 sli and see how that goes


For once I’m glad my CPU is dying, gives me an excuse to go from an i7 930 @ 2.3 to an i7 3820! Just need a new graphics though.


Welp, can’t run Crysis on high, time to get a new GPU. 560 can’t hold me above water forever.


Yeah I “make the cut”, but is it worth playing?


i5 2500K and a GTX 295 – have the power, just not the direct x11 support, so no go for me :(


I’m good for all hi performance except the GTX680, I have a pair of GTX590′s


yeh, i can play it on max, but i wont be buying it. no way im letting an ea game or origin on my computer, :/ not after bf3, warfighter, mass effect 3, or nfs most wanted. which all gave different unplayable errors.



SLI 590′s? are you kidding? id be surprised if you could play Pong without lag.

xD youll rape it



Since it seems to be just you with the errors, maybe you should check your PC… Sounds like a format needed :P



Yeah mate the problem there is on your end.
