    Hello, when I open up DxDiag it only says "AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series", so it doesn't say the exact video card. Can anyone please help as I would like to know? I want to know if I could run Crysis 3 at really good settings.

    You have a good gaming rig there and hopefully one of our Tech's knowledgeable in gaming can give you more advice.

    There's only two cards in the 6800 series, a 6850 and a 6870 and both fall into the Recommended Sepcs zone for Crysis 3.

    Also, there's a free demo for Crysis using Steam, get that and try the game and you'll know what to expect for performance.

    As for the exact card, SIW Free(http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.php just unckeck the free junk they include or use the trial version instead) can tell you the exact GPU under Hardware Devices, you can also look it up on the Alienware website by the model number of the system or the service tag, or checking your purchase receipt.

    A Core i7-2600k *AND* a Radeon 6800-series card? Oh ya, you'll be able to run Crysis 3.

    If my laptop can run it smoothly, your system should be able to.
