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.
Sorry bro, your CPU is basically the bare minimum needed to run this game. Upgrade.
