Definitely NOT with 1680x1050 + 512MB per card & "very high" textures.

The question is does Crysis use more than 512MB of VRAM at "Very High" textures @ 1680x1050. Answer to this clearly is YES.

Thus, SLi with 512MB per card simply can't run smoothly because both cards have to cache the exact same textures the VRAM are mirrors not cumulatives.

I rackon Frick meant (1.)Crysis + (2.) 8800GT + (3.) 8800GT.
;)

But, think I've heard there's 8800GT 1GB coming too, that should be enough for "Very High" textures in Crysis... Or the HD3870 if it comes in 1GB flavors.

My 640mb gts played very high textures no prob, I think that if you overclock the 8800gt it should be ok? I thought the 8800gt was faster? couldnt it process the textures faster? especially if overclocked?

I had everything max but shadows & post processing on high. Im sure Largon & Frick know what thier talking about though :p

I sold my gts last night :D might get a gt to hold me off till 9800's come out.


Edit: it only has so much ram available though for textures elc.. once it gets filled you will start lagging :(.

I think the more textures elc you add the more ram you need to maintain it from becoming a bottleneck, in Company of heroes when you added more detail into the setting it had a ram usage bar thing.. so the card may run faster (alot faster in sli) but once you use up the available ram you will prob see lag.. till than you will have faster frames.

I can live with almost max graphics :p have before, but yeah some games that are going to come out will have lots of textures.. I remember seeing a demo for one game like Oblivion... had some crazy detail. thats when you get a 9800gtx elc.

Depends on the resolution that you want to run. If it want max it out i don't know what would.
Good processor (It a Intel) so sue me I a AMD guy ok everyne has flaws.
4 gig of ram on 32 bit vista should be enough.
2 of those video card 8800gt
I run crysis sigle player demo at medium at 1024 by 768 with a cheap 7900gt

that is so weird at 1650 x 1050 I max everything out and I only get like 6400 in 3dmark06 I have the 3600x2 64 @2.8 and 8600gt at 640/1600 from 540/1400. that isn't a crazy setup considering everything in my entire setup
case, psu, 3gb ram, cpu, motherboard, video card, sound card, dual layer dvd burner, wireless mouse(2000dpi) keyboard,sick logitech speakers and 22" lcd monitor 1000:1 contrast ratio was under 600 dollars. come on big bucks is just waste for now
you guys getting 12k not being able to max out that game seems weird. I don't care what the recommended are I can have utorrent downloading at 1mb/sec and uploading at 200kb/sec, trillian, media monkey and a cpu chart open and yea that slows my speed down.
and still get 50fps fully maxing out battlefield 2142, fear, oblivion with quarls texture pack, and bioshock.. I'm confused. I want a better system yea but, I still don't know why haha

No SLI in demo, only in the final retail version. I doubt even two gt's will max it, there is a ton of effects coded in. Time will tell.

that is so weird at 1650 x 1050 I max everything out and I only get like 6400 in 3dmark06 I have the 3600x2 64 @2.8 and 8600gt at 640/1600 from 540/1400. that isn't a crazy setup considering everything in my entire setup
case, psu, 3gb ram, cpu, motherboard, video card, sound card, dual layer dvd burner, wireless mouse(2000dpi) keyboard,sick logitech speakers and 22" lcd monitor 1000:1 contrast ratio was under 600 dollars. come on big bucks is just waste for now
you guys getting 12k not being able to max out that game seems weird. I don't care what the recommended are I can have utorrent downloading at 1mb/sec and uploading at 200kb/sec, trillian, media monkey and a cpu chart open and yea that slows my speed down.
and still get 50fps fully maxing out battlefield 2142, fear, oblivion with quarls texture pack, and bioshock.. I'm confused. I want a better system yea but, I still don't know why haha
Take it from somebody who has a spare PC with an 8600gts - Crysis at anything above 1024x746 and medium settings kills it!
