you should have read the ending.

And what about graphics card performance? The very minimum detail level of Crysis 2 requires at least a Radeon HD 5770 or GeForce GTX 550 Ti at 1680x1050. If you want to turn all the new eye candy on at 1920x1080, nothing but the big guns will do: a couple Radeon HD 6970s in CrossFire or GeForce GTX 580s in SLI pave the way, although the results suggest Radeon HD 6950s in CrossFire and GeForce GTX 570s in SLI should also be serviceable. When it comes to CPUs, a triple-core chip at 3.5 GHz should do the trick, but the game really works best on quad-core processors at 2.5 GHz or faster.

In conclusion, we're glad that Crytek followed through with its DirectX 11 plans, delivering the best example of Microsoft's API in action yet, all without charging customers an extra penny. If you were holding off on Crysis 2 until the DirectX 11 patch came out, you owe it to yourself to stop hesitating and give it a try.

am Hameem BTW
i saw the crysis 2 directX 11 high res texture benchmarks and i noticed that 2 of GTX 460 can run it perfectly but unfortunately at 1680x1050

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/crysis-2-directx-11-performance,2983-7.html

and i want to know what single Nvidia graphic card can run crysis 2-directx 11-high res texture-perfectly at 1920x1080 with minimum of 30 fps exactly
so i can enhance it with another one like it in the future.. when the stuff get Tougher :bounce:

I have 2 GTX 460's and the gameplay is fine maxed out at 1080p. OCCASIONALLY it will dip but for the most part the gameplay is fluid.
 
If you read the review linked above, you'll see on this page that a GTX 570 will do a marginal job at 1920x1080 on max settings: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/crysis-2-directx-11-performance,2983-6.html
The hi-res doesn't seem to affect framerate.

If you have to do it with a single card, go GTX 580. If you can do multiple cards, 6950's or higher should do. But that's only graphics and says nothing of the rest of your build. Can your CPU, mobo, & PSU handle it?

At what frames tho? It looked good enough but even with my 580 clocked up to 920 on the core I still get bad frame dips with vsync on and on ultra settings. On some levels I dip into the 30's and its so bad I turned it back to extreme. Thats the only way I can even get a consistent 60fps.

look he gets 30 FPS easily with the HD 5870 with 8x AA, at this case a gtx 580 or 570 HD 6970 or HD 6950 will make it fine

i thought that if your minimum fps is 30 then its perfect :heink: because DICE has confirmed that the console version of BF3 will run at 30 FPS

On computers usually we shoot for 60 but if your fine with 30 thats cool too. By no means is 30 not playable tho.
 

I dunno if I'm just not 1337 enough but I don't think 30 fps or similar dips to 30 make a game unplayable. Crysis 2 with full settings I vsync it and it will run at 30 and that's playable for me

30 looks fine, to me, the problem is when it dips below that. At 60 fps that dip isn't very noticeable but when you drop from 30 to 15 fps its a jarring transition. 60 just gives a bit of headroom.

ok , so if any one like to enjoy playing a good game at 1080p like crysis 2 with directx 11 he will have to get at least gtx 590 ..
what about metro 2033 dx11 and the up coming Battlefield 3 dx11
 

No. Metro and Crysis 2 both are totally playable on single GPU cards, and I dont see BF3 being much of a difference
 

Im amiss as to what "console performance" means to you. 30 fps, although doable on a console with every game that is on them, are dumbed down graphically. Its nice to see all the sweet effects and high res textures consoles dont offer. 30 fps is far from console performance imo when we are talking about visuals that would make a console crawl.
 

I know what you're saying. This is why I love my gaming PC.

But for some, this might be a better option. Vsync is not a great feature to have to rely on especially in a first-person shooter.

Also, rumor has it BF3 has a GTX 460 as a 'recommended' (not just 'minimum') video card.

i think that the best graphic card ever made is the GTX 460 because of the performs that it provide for the money , and its less expensive from pretty much any card that has the same power.
plus nvidia has the Physics future plus Nvidia support more games than AMD , so...
