Default Enjoy Crysis at 2560x1600 2X AA for only €1400

If you are hoping that a single GTX 280 will get you to more than 1920x1200, don't kill the messenger; we have to regrettably disappoint you. Nvidia claims that a single GTX 280 will be enough for Crysis at 1920x1200 that is a standard resolution for most of the 24-inch LCD's. If you have 30-inch display that supports 2560x1600, you will need two GTX 280; but again, we heavily suspect that you won't be able to play with FSAA 4X enabled.<br><br>

This would be too much even for two GTX 280 cards. It becomes ridiculous, as two of these cards combined have 2.8 billion transistors and they will still not be able to bring Crysis to its knees. The best you can hope for at 2560x1600 is 2X FSAA with these two cards. We’ve had a chance to play Crysis with a single card and we can tell you that 1920x1200 FSAA 4X with beta drives brings the card to its knees.

This is taking the piss!

I was hoping to get one of these to play Crysis at 1920x1280.

If you can afford a 30" LCD monitor then two GTX 280 cards shouldn't pose to large an issue.

Knowing NVIDIA and NVIDIA's reputation with drivers, suspect they are still working out performance issues with SLI anyway, fo Fud's article is still mostly FUD.

Crysis has a hell of an engine, so I'm not surprised new cards can't kill it on 30" displays. As long as a single card can put it to bed on 1920x1200, I'm down. I'll probably still wait and see if AMD's new high-end card is decent because I'd really like to get away from nVidia's current driver weirdness in Vista.
