There is no certain combination for Crysis.
But there ARE several parts that will play it without a problem.
I assume that you want to game on ultra high settings, but what resolution are you planning on playing at?

SLI Nvidia high end graphic cards with an Intel i7...probably a 920 is the best performance /$$ and of course an x58 mobo with 6GB RAM kit and to top it off a proper PSU to push it all

Crysis is a joke. If your building a system around Crysis, you should see a psychiatrist.
If you build a rig for the one of the most hardware intensive game, then you will be able to play almost anything else.

dude how the hell do you have you 260 oc to 730 i have sli 285 and i cant get mine to oc above 700 i have tried with nvidia software and rivatuner and to be exact my top speed it 700 my temp does not go above 63 just very unstable above 700

You just answered your own question, he has a GTX 260 and you have a GTX 285. Why exactly would you think that your GTX 285 should be able to overclock more? Just because it is a faster card does not mean it can overclock more.

well the fact that the 285 starts off with a faster clock i understand that some cards do overclock better than others i just find it hard to believe a 260 can oc over a oc 285 the most you can get a 285 is like 750 i have not been able to do it thats why i was asking how you did it so i can do it myself

Well just think about this: you are faster without an overclock anyway ;)

Not Core speed-wise, but performance-wise you have the faster card
Look at the difference in specs here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/product_geforce_gtx_285_us.html
and this is the GTX 260: http://www.nvidia.com/object/product_geforce_gtx_260_us.html (btw on the GTX 260, the core 216 has 216 processing cores, not 192)

There are many factors that contribute to performance, but sometimes you dont even need a high overclock.

.......oh, and nice triple-posts there XD

Precisely. Most people fail to realize this.

Okay, here's one. You didn't give a budget, but anyway.

i7 920.
Gigabyte EX58-UD3R-SLI (cheapest X58) otherwise Asus P6T
3 or 6 GB DDR3 1333/1600
Hard Drive- whatever you want. Velociraptor/SSD if you can afford.
GTX260 SLI/ GTX 295 (again cost is the deciding factor)
Antec 900
Corsair TX750
Any 24" monitor (if you're interested in Nvidia 3Dvision, get what they give you. Its a 22" Samsung 120Hz)

+1 for the above post again. Anyway, a 30MHz difference is not that much practically. You can say this is 700 and that is 730, but when you play, it might be just a 1-2 fps difference.

I don't understand why you have 6GB on a Core 2 system. 4 will do fine. 6 is kind of odd. Is it 2x2 + 2x1?

Why people use 16xAA(1920X1080) in crysis, is much better to have 4xAA and avg 50fps instead or 30fps.
I have similar system with you (q6600@3.2GHz GTX295) and I run crysis @ 1680X1050 8xAA ultra high setting avg53fps, max71, min35fps.

Brandon00000: you can achieve higher clocks by upping the voltage on the cards. This also will produce much more heat make sure to turn fan speed up. I used evga voltage tuner. (remember overclocking result varies from card to card)

rags_20: 2x2 2x1 is correct i had a spare of 2x1 left so i just stuck it in there lol didnt want to waste it.

michaelmk86: Thanks for the advice i just assumed 16aa was a lot better but ill give 4aa a shot.

i am aware of that i just thought evga tuner was just for evga cards the only way i have found to up the voltage on the 285 is the evga volt tuner but unfortunatly i have bfg
