Yes! The GT is cowering in terror. 'Till it's installed, at which point it kicks the everloving #%*! out of the 5800 Ultra. No matter what resolution I set the GT at, Far Cry with all the settings on "Very High" runs between 50-75 fps. Methinks the CPU (AthlonXP 2500+ overclocked to 2147MHz/400FSB) is now the bottleneck.

Only disconcerting thing: the heatpiped 5800 Ultra never got hotter than 75 degrees (I watch the temperature indicator on a second monitor) during gameplay. The BFG 6800 GT OC regularly hits **91 degrees**!! Zikes!!
