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.
