    so are you comparing the computer to crysis?...

    well i know its kinda low end, im just wandering if ill be able to or not, and if so how much it will cost to get up to the level to play games such as crysis. A simple yes or no answer would work but more info is better.

    You probably can play the game on low/med settings getting around 20 fps.

    the video card probably needs to be swapped out for a bit more you could get a radeon x1950pro9or somethings imilar to it) something like this

    processor might be an issue later on and you could always upgrade that later specially since that motherboard is great for overclocking

    Crysis does quite well on dual cores, its mainly just the gpu. Id try to get a x1950 --- or 7900gs and you can run the game on med with decent fps.
