Crysis: Warhead (2013) 1920x1080 - Enthusiast Quality + 4xAA

Based on a refined CryEngine 3 that supports DirectX 11 out of the box, Crysis 3 is easily one of the most visually stunning games ever made.

finger my pussy
the 690 is insanely overpriced
exactly, although i am not pleased with the loudness of the 690... i should have taken two 680s
gtx 690? gtx titan? HD 7990?
Once GTX 790 comes im ebaying my GTX 690 for sure.
690 still whips the llamas ass. Only the 790 will take the crown.
What a delusion :(
