[citation][nom]r3t4rd[/nom]not play "Cry"sis, more like Starcraft to Half Life games and maybe a few newer ones[/citation]
Depending on how new you meant. I play Starcarft with Pentium MMX 166MHz, and HL1 with Athlon 1400+/Ti4200. Atom is fast enough to play any 2D games, and, if you have Ion, could handle most games before 2004. Maybe except Rome:Total War, but I could be wrong.
Doom 3 and HL2 actually opened the new age of monster gaming rig with the introduction of OpenGL 2.1 and DirectX 9c. That made 2004 a remarkable year of gaming history.
With everything extra low, Crisis may just be barely playable with Atom/Ion combination. I've done that with Athlon X2 4850e and GeForce8200. It was laggy, unpleasant, but otherwise still runs.
