Well, kind of.
With the effects the game is trying to do, it's pushed way pass the abilities of yesterdays and todays video cards.
It's amazing, when Crysis first came out - a $600 GeForce 8800GTX was the best in town. Now a $200 video card is even faster. Sometimes its less than $200.
Play a UT3 game which also looks great, but not the same tech shows some possible problems with Crysis - but how many games have the vegatiation level? Hell, UT3 ran at about 35fps (1024x768 MAX details) on a GF7600GT and AMD x2 3800, not bad.
I've played Crysis on a 3850 card in med/High details on 1280x900 res, it looks great and played well. How much better is MAX details?
How did the Crysis team develop this game back in the day when the best was the ATI 1900 and GF 7800 cards?

Crysis Warhead is supposed to run a lot better according to the developers. They also said they haven't rolled it back into Crysis as a patch because of time or something.
