Crysis gets a November 16 release date

Electronic Arts (EA) and Crytek have announced that the first person shooter Crysis will be hitting retail shelves on November 16. The highly anticipated game which promises to deliver “stunning DirectX 10 and DirectX 9 visuals” has also been cited by the source as available for the PC only. I guess we'll have to wait and see if the possibility of XBOX 360 and PS3 ports go ahead. It seems that the Nov 16 release date should coincide nicely with Microsoft' SP1 for Vista and NVIDIA' rumoured G92

“Crytek is constantly striving to push the boundaries of both game design and technology, while maintaining quality at the highest bar," said Cevat Yerli, CEO and president of Crytek, said in a prepared statement. "We're thankful to our fans for their support and patience, and we're excited to bring them Crysis this year. It's going to be worth the wait."

According to EA, the new game will feature open-ended gameplay and dress the player in a “revolutionary nanosuit and an arsenal of fully customizable weapons.” The game environment will include “tropical jungles, flash-frozen landscapes and a zero gravity environment.” There also will be a new team-based mode to play the game, which will enable up to 32 players can face each other.

Like title says my friend is getting a new pc, and he asked me for help so i put him together what I personally would see as a kick ass machine. But he wants it to play crysis at high with no lag at 1280x1024, and Bio Shock ( Never heard of it :( ) His budget is $1500 if you guys have any ideas, he already has a Lian Li so that isnt included I will post link to it. I am not sure of his tech skill, so I am trying to keep things simple.

Quite a solid lineup. Its almost identical to the config I'm looking at getting at the end of this year.

As for how well it plays Crysis, that's anyone's guess. Judging by benches of the few DX10 games out there, I doubt the GTS will play Crysis over 30fps. The GTX isn't much better tbh. Unfortunately, short of waiting for the 9800's to come out later this year, there's not much you can do about that.

But all of the videos we have seen of crysis are shot using current hardware, some are even in DX9..
Solid setup how ever in my opinion get the XFX 8800GTS 'XXX' its slightly faster than the EVGA one for the same'ish price in the UK atleast. Vista home premium would do well enough if you wanted to save abit of cash to spend else where.
Does he need an aftermarket cooler if you are trying to keep it simple? You could use the money saved and get an 8800GTX or a Q6600.. :)

Or just use XP? Vista isn't quite there yet in my opinion. :)

Switch out the EVGA 680i for a P5K Dlx or even better an IP35 Pro and you'll be sorted.
