Interesting, that they don't provide any specs other than Direct X 11, 1 GB of Video RAM for the requirements. A cheap 64 bit video card with 2 GB of RAM on Newegg is $40. They don't talk about memory interface and don't mention frequency. How about they just talk about max throughput that the card is able to push, or is it not important?

My current setup while outdated and never built with highest parts still plays everything I want. I built it in 2009 to play original Crysis on Max. Yes, I used to buy games on the cheap when the frenzy settled. Crysis 3 is pre-ordered.

Asus M3N HT Deluxe
8 GB of DDR2 @1066
AMD Phenom II x4 (Deneb) quadcore at 3 GHz. Not overclocked.
Dual BFG 9800 GTX + OC (factory overclocked).
Samsung 840 SSD (256 GB)

From what I've read, my cards are still comparable to at least 560. I will see how Crysis plays before deciding on an upgrade.

I wonder what kind of hardware they will use to make their demos with...

Do it! The system has been nothing short of phenominal. Getting a Z77 based system would also be a great choice and it would run Crysis 3 just fine ;)

I think I'll be ok. I've got i7 2600K OC'd to 4.8GHz and 2 XFX 6970's OC'd to 1.1GHz on core.

Looks like it will run.
Woot!

Not as bad as I thought it would be. Im running a i7 980x, 12gb ram, with a GTX 590 so I should be able to run it with no problems. Though I should mention my gf is getting me a GTX 690 for xmas this year!!

I'm surprised there's no mention of resolution. Are we assuming that everyone is running 1920x1080 now? I have an i7-960, 12GB of RAM, Win7, and a Nvidia 670 (overclocked) so I'm pretty close to the high end system. But I use a 2560x1600 monitor, so for that resolution I get the feeling that I'd need another 670 for SLI, but since there's no mention of the resolution, I can't be sure.

The resolution is 1080p. I don't think it will be possible to run this game or Far Cry 3 for example maxxed out at launch at 2560.

I am more than ready for Recommended with 16 gigs of ram, a Radeon 6850 and an AMD FX-6300 x6 CPU, but the 6850 will keep me from those High Performance settings.

It will probably be another six months before I consider a GPU upgrade. The previous games looked pretty good even on Medium settings, so I'm guessing that'll be the case here too.

The minimum is DirectX 11 with 1GB of vRAM? Wow, bad move by Crytek for not supporting DX10. They lost a lot of mainstream computers right there.

Heh, looking at the minimum system requirements reminds me of my old AMD dual-core mobo and the Diamond 5770 that I used to have. Both are now in "PC Heaven" (the mobo lasting much longer than the video card).

In any case, I pretty much fit into the Recommended requirements (even though the 6870 is weaker than the 5870). I don't really mind much since even "Med-High" detail can still look great.
