    hello evryone, im spending 1800$ on a new pc (just the central unit) no monitor or other stuff. So i would like someone to build me a system with the perfect price/performance ratio.

    I would like this system to run Crysis on very high detail (if that's possible)

    Thanks!

    I would wait until late January to spend 1800 dollars on a PC. If you buy the parts now, they will be obsolete by February. (45nm CPUs from Intel and 700 series MBs from nVidia both just around the corner).

    That is my advice. Take it or Leave it.

    There have also been sighting of something called a 9800GTX and a G92 based 8800GTS flying over the Nevada desert. The former being a absolute beast. However, there is no solid evidence to support such outrageous claims.

    1333MHz FSB
    12MB Cahe
    2.5GHz-2.8GZ

    Wait until Directx 10.1 graphics cards come out. You're looking to spend a lot getting Crysis to run on high detail, so you'll want anti-aliasing. You won't be able to have it on very high without directx 10.1. The current range of graphics cards don't support 10.1
