Because the HD2600 cards suck. The ATI 8600GTS is about equal to the X1900GT, that's why they mention the X1900GT and not the HD2600.
ATI 8600gts???

Edit1: How good was the X1900GT? My X1800XT rapes my friend's 8600gt.
Edit2: Oh it's slower than the x1800xt by a little bit.

Exactly. They also don't say at what settings. At a low rez and all settings at low, my old P4, AGP 6800GT system would run Crysis with good frames.

The PC version is supposed to look a lot better than the console versions. As long as that is true and the gameplay is as good as the hype says, I will be happy with it.
Exactly mon coudnt of put it better myself and with better optimisation will make it more accesable to a larger audience then Crysis did. And Triz compliments on the avvy best on TPU :toast:
