A little help from Crytek

The folks over at Crytek are concerned that not enough of you are playing their new game Crysis. I don't doubt that they are considering how lousy the sales numbers have been. They were kind enough to spec out some upgrade parts that will allow people to play the game decently in High detail. Here they are:

CPU - Intel Core2Duo E6750
GPU - GeForce 8800GT 512MB
Motherboard - NVIDIA nForce 650i Socket 775
PSU - 600W ATX12V
RAM - 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit
HDD - SATA 250GB 7200RPM
DVD - 20x DVD±R Burner
Case - ATX Midi Tower Computer Case
OS - Microsoft Windows XP Home with SP2

They claim these parts can be had for just under $900. I don't doubt that, but I could get an Xbox 360 and a PS3 for that much. The difference in graphics isn't THAT much. Thanks, Crytek, but no thanks.
