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

It may not be fair to compare the performance of a 5900 np to a 9800XT, but I bet the 9800 Pro will out do a 5950 Ultra with the same system specs. I don't know how much the game is CPU dependent, and my system is definitely showing its age. But for the game to be unplayable at certain points with an above-average video card is ridiculous. I bet a 9600 XT or even a 9600 Pro will do better than my 5900, and those are mid-level cards.
