Eh, I gave it a try on my old faithful rig and it was a slideshow at any resolution above 640x480. .

This morning I also had the chance to test it on a Prescott 2.8GHz with a GF6800NU I'm assembling at the shop: it runs fine, still I wasn't that impressed.

You're right: Far Cry pulls out some nice tricks to reduce the workload of the system but, in the end, the results are equally impressive.
