Holy **** i think my comp would implode if i tried running 10 ships let alone 700+ xD

Do you have a high end gaming rig or something decent?

I've got:

Intel i5 CPU 760 @ 2.80GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.8GHz
ATI Radeon HD 4600 Series
4 gigs of ram DDR3

and i couldn't even play Assassin's Creed 4 on lowest possible settings and resolution, and as far as i know that's also cry engine right ? :(

I'm pretty sure AC4 uses its own engine, not CryEngine. Take a look here for the CryEngine End User minimum requirements (may be slightly out of date): Crydev.net

If you really want to play this game on high detail and with 60+ fps then I would recommend sticking another 4 gb of RAM in your motherboard and upgrading your Graphics card to say an AMD R7 or R9, or Nvidia equivalent. Doesn't have to be a 300 Euro card but your HD 4600 will get pulled on it's knees pretty quick by the Cryengine 3. Your CPU will be alright, you could overclock it a little bit if you really don't want it to be a bottle neck but at this moment your Graphics card is the weakest link. Good luck!

I am running a 3570k i5, 16G Corsair DDR3 RAM, nVidia 2GB 660 GTX. I am also running a crapload of apps and IDE environments in the background including the CryEngine dll in Visual Studio debug mode which gives a decent performance hit.

What? That's ridiculous... I thought you would have at least a 660Ti 2Gb. Just show's how much dedication to optimisation you guys have put into this game. I'd love to see the same amount of ships on my 680 4Gb haha.
