Default Two GTX 260's in SLi

How well would these handle the latest games like Crysis?

just a general question based on your knowledge.

They would kick Crysis to the curb.

Nvidia Geforce GTX SLI-Performance

honestly, i dont think its worth it to try to max out Crysis.
Sure its cool to see it stunning and say you can max out Crysis.
I think it costs too much money, in a year, maybe we can pick up a card for $250 and be able to max out Crysis.

That would last you a lot longer than a normal (example) 9800gt and you have to make sure you have a big case becuase they are huge. also they run really hot so you have to have a good fan. Overall TOTAL OWNAGE!!!

It would handle it easily. I just don't believe Crossfire or SLI is worth it, right now. Maybe if you're playing at extremely high resolutions. Sure, Crysis looks amazing at very high settings. BUT, it's expensive to get it going. I believe Teny is right. Just wait a while.

Plus, Crysis isn't even that fun, ha!

I'll be playing on a 24" widescreen.

i dont think Crysis is fun either.
But Warhead is kind of fun when you are bored.

I think its better to see what specs Far Cry 2 needs to max out.
This game actually looks fun, and looks like it will need a high end PC...
