I just bought a new computer and the specs are

Intel core i5 2320 @ 3.0 GHz Quad Core
8GB RAM DDR3
2 GB Radeon 6670
and a 2 TB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive,

i built it for 650, but i want to know if it will run it on max settings
 
no it will run on high ish settings but not max the 6670 is a low end card you need a mid range card to max out crysis and get 30 fps minimum. your system is fine for it on the whole just a little weak on the gfx. for 650 its a very nice build. maybe in a few months you can upgrade that gfx and move from low mid to high end. a small tweak here and there and you will have a very nice pc.
also your hdd is poor. you will get a lot of texture pop because its slooooow much better to get a 7200rpm 1 or get 2 and run them in raid 0.
even if you get 2 500gig 1s you will get much smoother gameplay and system experience.
i run 2 of my 3 1tb spinpoint f3's and get an average of 180MBps read and write. which is over double what yours will top out at... it really is a good investment if you dont want to get a ssd that costs way to much for the storage you get...
(reason i say this is some manufacturers have just cut production because ssd prices were coming down to fast, they basically are holding the price up which is unfair to the end user)

Ah forgot t mention, I did get a lot of lag in the final cutaway scene with the massive whirlpool but part of that might have been drivers for W8 not being quite ready. But it's not actual gameplay so who cares :p
