Buy a Crysis 2 Gaming PC for $599

March 15, 2011

In 2008 NVIDIA partnered with EA and Crytek to create a $699 PC capable of playing Crysis Warhead on High at thirty frames per second or more. So successful was this partnership that NVIDIA and two system builders have joined forces to once again create the super-affordable Crysis 2 PC.

Despite economic instability and rising prices for day to day necessities, NVIDIA has been able to reduce the cost of the Crysis 2 computer to $599 thanks to the newly released GeForce GTX 550 Ti and the bulk purchasing power of CyberPower PC and V3 Gaming PC. Both vendors are offering a sub $600 PC capable of playing Crysis 2 at up to 1920 x 1080 at Advanced settings. Check out the specs below.

So just how fast do the two systems run Crysis 2? We can’t offer you specific numbers, but our similar, homemade $600 Crysis 2 PC achieved a 36.2 frames per second average, and with an overclock, 41.9 frames per second. A similar level of performance will be seen on the CyberPower PC and V3 Gaming computers, and in fact, we expect to see slightly better performance due to the i3’s extra power.
