Far Cry & Crysis on Win7 x64?

I am not a gamer. I would like to test my system with games and Far Cry and Crysis are available really cheap.

My question to you gamers is this: will these games run on Windows 7 x64?

Thanks for your patience.

They both will, but you'll need to patch them up to date..

make sure you get the right patches..

Crysis will test your rig to the max.. excellent gameplay..

Thank you for answering.

Please tell me how to get the patches. Also, will I have to save the games and their patches to my hdd?

BugMeister,

What do you mean when you say that Crysis will test my computer to its max?

Not only will they run on 64 bit, but Crysis has native 64 bit support and Far Cry can be patched to 64 bit,

Thanks for the link to the patch for Far Cry but I am using an Intel i7 950 processor and this patch is for an AMD processor.

Also, can I run this game from the dvd or must I rip it to my hdd? The only ripping software I have installed is AnyDVDHD.

Wrong (try looking in your winsxs folder ), it runs the same on 64 bit Intel CPU's as AMD CPU's.

And yes you have to install the game, it doesn't run from the disk.

That the 64 bit patch is only for AMD processors.
