you need definately a 8 serie card for the DX10 effects and also a duo core, but thats my opinion.

The minimum recommended settings are pretty low, as one can only hope to touch low/medium with a 7800 series along with a decent cpu and 2GB's of memory. At least that is my experience so far.

yeah but my experience is, that you need to play it on a medium high setting or otherwise, you are better to buy far cry!

To give you a rough idea, look at my system specs, and bear in mind that it struggles on maximum settings at 1440x900. I have to turn down dynamic shadows and a few other options to 'medium' to make it playable. Still looks bloody good though.

Realistically, if you're looking to play it maxed out you should be looking at no less than a quad-core processor, along with either an nVidia 8800GTX/Ultra, or an ATi HD2900/HD3800. Preferably, two of them.

some gamers like myself do not mind somewhat shabby graphics, its about the game mechanics themselves and the story, on med/low, crysis did not disappoint.. well a part from the halo2-ish ending that is.

Exactly! Most gamers in this day and age get things totally wrong! They think that the graphics are everything! If the game looks like shit, it sucks, but if it looks exactly like it came out of real life, it's gotta be great, right? Wrong. People are oblivious to gameplay mechanics, replayability, originality, etc... If it looks like crap, it is. If the graphics are great, it's definitely worth the 1000+ USD to make it look that way. There are tons of games that don't exactly look the greatest incomparison to other things of their time, but the addictive gameplay is what keeps players at their desks long into the night. For example, look at JK3. The Quake 3 engine was showing its age, but with the addictive gameplay, amazing modability, room for custom maps, and consistent, non-repetitive gameplay forged the online community that is still thriving with huge numbers today. Graphics aren't everything. When I buy a game, I go for gameplay mechanics and all the other features named above that make a game great. As for Crysis, gameplay was amazing. Whether playing on medium-high, or on absolute low quality, the gameplay was addicting, non-repetitive, consistent and exciting. Sure, it has great graphics. If the graphics are great, that's great, but that's not what I'm concerned with. I'm not about to go buy tons of new equipment destined to be outdated the day after just to make an already great game look pretty. However, I will upgrade my RAM to get rid of the choppy framerate. =p Overall, it's a great game. Sure, the visuals are amazing. More spectacular then basically any game before it. But what really made it a great game was the mechanics and gameplay. To conclude, gfx are great, but that's not what makes a great game. Hmm, I went on about that for a while... Well, at least I got it out of my system. So on a scale of 1-100, what would you rate it with 100 being the highest, and 1 being the lowest? I'd give it a solid 97

Every ingame setting is set to 'High', except Shadow Quality, Game Effects Quality and Sound Quality, which are all set to Medium. For some reason whenever I enable AA, it has a fit and resets the AA settings to default (off). I've since forced it to run in 16xQ Supersampling through the nVidia Control Panel, but to be honest I see no real difference.
