You don't even need to upgrade for Crysis - that will comfortable run it all at max meh thinks although theres no way of knowing.

If you are going to upgrade wait until the new nVIDIA cards are out atleast instead of upgrading from a superb card to a slightly better card.

Anyway - I'm sure EVGA do a stepup program where you can get a GTX and only pay the difference if you have a GTS.

That looks like a good setup to me and should handle Crysis fine, perhaps not max settings but at least at a good graphics setting.

If you are desperate just buy an 8800GTX and you'll be fine. But i'd recommend waiting just to see how things play with your current setup.

by the time these games are out the 9xxx series might be out, and maybe "true quad core", also keep in mind that you can sell the old of what you are replacing.

imo - wait.
