What version of Far Cry and what version of the nvidia drivers?

Edit: I use to have better luck using version 1.3 of Far Cry but with forceware 81.98 that I'm using now, version 1.33 and the beta 1.4 versions seem to be okay also.

Edit 2: Also, if you're trying to use HDR, make sure AA is off although I don't think that is the issue since doing that usually causes much worse corruption.

I just bought the game last week and I had the same problem until I downloaded the patch, although it was 1.1, don't know why I did that, but that worked.

You have to install the patches in numeric order: 1.31 > 1.32 > 1.33

Actually it is 1.3 > 1.31 > 1.33(this one contains all fixes from 1.32)
