Crysis is not a new game & arguably any "gaming" machine purchased today should play the game flawlessly on high settings. If you are open to the idea of building the gaming machine yourself, that's even better.

Depending on if you have components that can be used for the new machine & if you are looking for a value; performance or high-end gamer, be prepared to spend between $500-$1500 dollars.

@Sabertooth
i agree it's not a new game but since it's release(2007) and until today only hd 5970 can play in 2560x1600 very high details, no aa, no af.But if u apply aa x8 u get 24fps which is not good. And i have to disagree with u "any gaming machine purchased today should play the game flawlessly" better check benchamark yourself.

@Holiday 6

Though it was released almost 3 years ago, Crysis is still among if not the most demanding PC game and one of the most technically advanced game to date. Even with my setup (E8500 @ Stock, 2 GB RAM, 9800 GT oc'd to 721mhz/1000) @ 1440 x 900, frames get choppy at times, specifically when playing the last level.

"Though it was released almost 3 years ago, Crysis is still among if not the most demanding PC game..."

Thanks for posting the above. Having played the game myself when it was released on this machine & I don't have the greatest video card in it, I know it does require a decent gaming card & that's part of the reason why I said that any "gaming" machine purchased today should be able to play it on "high" settings.

If I bought a gaming machine today or built one & it couldn't run Crysis on high, I wouldn't call it a gaming machine. The OP is not asking for something that must run Crysis on ultra-high settings with the resolution & every details cranked up to the max ... he's possibly looking to acquire a gaming machine for a reasonable budget that won't necessarily break the bank.

Holiday6,

Do you have an idea of how much you are looking to spend on this machine? If you don't, I suggest you check out this THG's article. I should give you an idea of what to expect from the type of machine you're looking to build & how much to budget.
