Re: Far Cry shows how pitiful GeForceFX is in DX9 games
I have no issues running Far Cry with my FX 5900 U - I get fps between 40 - 60 with fsaa set to 4x and picture quality is excellent. I'm currently running using the following settings:
Texture Quality Very High
Particle Count Medium
Special Effects High
Environment Very High
Shadow Effects Medium
Water Quality Very High
Lighting Quality Medium or High
I'm using the Forceware 56.63 WHQL downloadable from guru3d.com or the MSI site.
