Somebody buy that man a monitor! The $500 machine looks like it might have been able to play Crysis at 2560x1600, when overclocked, but we’ll never be certain since it hasn’t been tested at that resolution. Surely, nobody with a $500 budget on their machine is expected to spend more than $1000 on a display, right?
Our highest test settings are supposed to be enough to hamper even the $2000 machine, but it passes the test perfectly. Likewise, the $1000 machine passes at its 1920x1080 target resolution. It’s probably time to step up our Crysis evaluation by adding AA (Ed.: or drop it altogether in favor of Crysis 2).
