OK, so I guess then I will upgrade next year then and sell off my unopened core i7920 and just wait for a better i7. Still thinking about getting a new mb and corssfiring my 5850 or by next year just get a new GPU by that time its released, Im sure the game will be the next version of DX11, mYBE dx11.2 which will probably be helpful for 3d....
I'm honestly relieved a little that some of these awesome new games aren't coming out til next year as it will allow me to do the following:
A: Work on my currently overwhelming backlog I have going already.
B: Should be able to get another 5770 for crossfire or just bypass that and move onto a 6xxx series Radeon.
C: Give them plenty of time to work on the game so we dont get no crummy port of a console game. (Hopefully!)
I prefer they take the extra few months to, dare I say, "perfect" the game and iron out as much bugs/glitches as possible. The mistake a lot of developers make IMHO, is rushing a under-developed product to the market forcing end user to download patches etc. just to get the game fired up for the first time. Besides, we don't want them to ruin the Crysis name
These game sequels are already being released too fast, and the faster they get released the more they SUCKS, because the developers don't have enough time to create a truly genuine game so they just throw out a mediocre game with mediocre designed levels mediocre gameplay, story and so on. The dev's should take more time to create genuinely new games not just throw outs.
As everyone else here said, this will give ATI more time to get another wave of cards out (hopefully) & improve crossfire performance and allow me enough time to get a few bucks saved up to be able to afford it. IF ATI actually improves crossfire performance I may actually fill all the slots on my ASUS Crosshair IV paired up with my 1090T cpu. Its begging for it...
