I'd put this at the bottom of the list of potential issues to worry about with regards to far cry performance.. Hey, maxpower, are you sure that the performance gain wasn't because AA is disabled by cards with limited vram if you set the resolution too hight..
Hey Drumphil we have this nifty quote feature... You had me seeing double there for a second. Oh absolutely, this is not the reason I'm sure...just that I have seen this oddity at (rare) times with 1280x1024. I'm not aware of the disabling that you refer to.

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.
