Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Crysis 3

As Crysis 3 falls into the , Shooter, Sandbox genre group, we have chosen to increase the quality of the mouse we are adding to our PC to help better meet the needs of the game. We have opted for the Cooler Master MM710, where this particular mouse is currently today’s best price but a more high performing gamer mouse than some of the other mice we normally choose in our builds.

Crysis 3 Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

With a game like this, (which falls in the , Shooter, Sandbox genre group) we wanted to make sure the audio solution we go with was up to the task. A game like Crysis 3 has encouraged us to increase the quality of the headset we choose as it will return a much better experience overall. Looking through the hardware lists available and reviewing today’s prices we felt that the Logitech G635 7.1 headset is the right way to go, delivering some great audio, clear, reliable, while still being the best priced mid range headset. We have a selection list for headsets above if you would like to consider some other options we have seen at a good price today.

An Alternative Crysis 3 Graphics Card Option for 1080p

If you are wanting a graphics choice from the other team then our suggestion would be the Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050 video card, currently priced at $149.99. This option has a performance of 1% worse when compared to the Radeon RX 560 2GB and completely capable of offering a good gpu alternative.
