Everyone knows that PC games are always going to have a leg up on consoles for one simple reason, hardware. The simple fact that you can purchase bits of hardware to make your super awesome games even more super awesome-er.

This is also the pitfall of many games like Crysis. Games should be made with some balance of current hardware and gameplay. Not made with the intent of forcing gamers to drop a cool grand on hardware upgrades just to play the greatest game anyone has ever seen.



Crysis has always been the benchmark for what level of awesome is your computer. So what about Crysis 3, what will you need to be boss of the LAN party (do they still have those?)

Minimum Requirements:

  • Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8

  • DirectX 11 graphics card with 1Gb Video RAM

  • Dual core CPU

  • 2GB Memory (3GB on Vista)

  • Example 1 (Nvidia/Intel):

    Nvidia GTS 450

    Intel Core2 Duo 2.4 Ghz (E6600)

  • Example 2 (AMD):

    AMD Radeon HD5770

    AMD Athlon64 X2 2.7 Ghz (5200+)

Ultra Mode Requirements:

  • Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8

  • Latest DirectX 11 graphics card

  • Latest quad core CPU

  • 8GB Memory

  • Example 1 (Nvidia/Intel):

    NVidia GTX 680

    Intel Core i7-2600k

  • Example 2 (AMD):

    AMD Radeon HD7970

    AMD Bulldozer FX4150

So good news, the game will look great on your system. Bad news is you better start saving all your pennies and aluminum cans for that $600+ video card.
Sad Face.


Many Thanks for source info.
