I'm a gamer, which means I try to keep my rig up to date with decent hardware. I won't say that I go out and buy the latest and greatest every time something new comes out, but it's really not that bad. On that note, the system requirements for Crysis were revealed today. If you're looking to play it, you might need to upgrade. Hit the jump for the breakdown.

My rig should actually keep pace fairly well, though I'm really starting to think it's about time I upgraded to a DX10 card. Crytek wanted this to be one of those games by which everyone else tries to measure up. With requirements like these, I have a feeling they're going to hit that mark.
