    What's the point? No card can run it a respectable frame rate unless your make it look like dog doo doo.

    Note to Crysis dudes: quit screwing yourselves over by dropping a dud after the great FarCry. Should have just delayed the game until it actually runs. Bad move, it pisses people off.

    Im not buying it or downloading it (not that I would). If I got one of the aforementioned video cards, Id just sell the damn game.

    Yea, the evga 8800GT I have coming in has Crysis with it... but I really don't understand why. Crysis is the ONE game that the 8800GT can't run on high settings, so why would you bundle that ONE game with it?

    I dunno if the copy of Crysis that comes with the card is bound to the card or not. My friend bought an XFX 7900GT a year or so ago, and it came with Need for Speed or something stupid. Another guy tried installing it on his computer, but it didn't allow him to get past the install screen because he didn't have an XFX card. I'm not sure about it in this case however...

    Oh, and I'm not sure if this has been talked about, but evga is giving an offer that whenever you buy 8800 series, they'll give you Quake Wars for free! Here's the link: http://www.evga.com/etqw/

    crysis is no different than farcry when it must came out.. it killed the then current hardware..

    but it is to help clear the obsolete hardware..

    Obsolete ones? I think not.. theses cards are better for higher res than the 512mb cards out there.

    I just got a 8800gts 112sp.. since people were comaplaing about the 8800gt not having good frame rates at 1680x1050 and above when enabling eye candy that is atleast.

    I got one bundled with quake wars for $309+ taxes -$30MIR.. than they just added the Crysis bundled one for $325+ taxes -$30MIR :p ohwell I'll prob just give Tigger69 Quake Wars if he would like it :p hes helped me out alot. I didnt care much for the game.

    I dont know what folks are talking about. I have a x1950xt and an x2 4600 2 gigs ram and I can run the game on high settings. No dont get me wrong , it does suck in some places and in a few instances it's quite uplayable, but it will do it. So dont tell me that a 8800gt coupled with kick ass dual core proc. isnt going to be able to do it. AA and resolution kill it for sure. So just play at high with 1024X768 or something. Whats the big deal!

    Well my 8800 is coming next week so we will see!! *fingers crossed*

    Doesn't say anything about online, wonder if it works with this. I had some Colin McRae rally bundeled with one card, it was full game, but no key. Mailed codemasters about it and they said online isn't included in bundle games.

    This may as well be one key for all and no online play for anyone. Not that I'm buying, but if I wanted it I'd make sure is it full retail first :)

    Why do people keep saying this? I'm tired of it. I had an athlon 3500 and 6800gt (of course oced to ultra) and it ran good.
    Granted the hardware was high end, but still, Crysis does kill the 8800, and it's unplayable. FarCry was no where near that with the 6800s.

    Coincidentally, my 6800 was an evga and it was bundled with FarCry haha. Solid cards all around.

    nVidia was nice enough to give me a copy of CRYSIS at the GeForce LAN 4 on the 16th. nVidia sure knows how to put on a good time for the gamers. I got to play in a CRYSIS FFA against the devs. of CRYSIS. You all know how that turned out. I got my butt whooped, but it was one hell of an ass whoopin'. :rockout:

    I think thats a nice little combo deal. I love when Graphics Card companies do stuff like this.
