The Crysis Warhead $699 PC!

Postby Cry-Alex » 13.09.2008, 21:00




When Crytek started the development of Crysis Warhead, their mission was not only to give gamers more of the action-packed, open-ended gameplay gamers latched onto in Crysis, but also to enhance CryENGINE 2 to the point where Crysis Warhead would show a marked improvement in performance from the original game.


Mission accomplished.

And now with the launch of Crysis Warhead just a few days away, we’re proud to announce a partnership that will give PC gamers a similar experience as an option. Ultra PC with feedback and consultation from Crytek and NVIDIA, will begin selling a pre-built system, the Ultra Optimized PC, featuring performance specs for only $699 at http://www.tigerdirect.com/go/crysis/ when Warhead ships on September 16th. This PC will be capable of running Crysis Warhead on Gamer visual settings at an average of 30 FPS.

“When we started developing Crysis Warhead, we gave the team at Crytek Hungary the challenge of optimizing CryENGINE 2 to improve performance from Warhead without sacrificing any of the visual fidelity we pushed for in Crysis,â€

LoL, mine cost about 6x as much as that.... 8o but when you have a $1500 video card it kinda does that to you...

That PC actually isn't a bad deal for me though. I need a new game rig as my previous one is old and fried, and it would keep me from my "must have the current best" syndrome. The only thing is i'm to tempted to get rid of the duo for quad, 2 gig single sticks for 4-8 gigs on 2 gig sticks, and, well I already own a actual copy of Vista Ultimate 64. Bah, my curse! Nice system, but I guess I'll hold off like usual. To much work to make it what I want it.

I reckon it'll have Vista installed, since DX10 is very quickly becoming the norm for gaming.

You only have a 8800GTX, which is barely better then the 9800GT/8800GT. You'll get about the same performance as this computer would.

The 8800Ultra after all can be found for $200. And you have the step under that.
