Default Re: Far Cry shows how pitiful GeForceFX is in DX9 games

I've heard how pitiful the GeForceFX is with DX9 shaders. Now I can actually SEE the difference. Let's hope Nvidia can correct this problem with the new NV40. Otherwise, ATI will keep walking away with the performance crown. "The Way it's Meant to be Played" is a real JOKE!!! It seems ATI's cards are more suited to the newest games.
FWIW...Not saying this is for certain....but 1280x1024 is kind of a funky resolution in certain games. I've seen (especially in racing games for whatever reason) that performance is actually better at 1600x1200. I know that is not the norm at all and goes against logic but I've seen it. I don't have Far Cry (yet) so can't speak for it.

I personally believe that us americans are unable to do so because osama.

People out there in our nation don't have that, And I believe that our education like such as south africa and such as the Iraq.

everywhere "such as". And I believe our education should help the US should help the south africa and the iraq and the asian countries so we can build up our future.
