Default Re: Disabling PS2.0 on FX5900 made me happy

Even in HL2 I'm seeing a great improvement in performance (ie. can use higher AA settings happily) with virtually no loss in image quality - thanks Daneel!!.
My pleasure.
Some indoor pipes are less shiny.
BTW, I slowed my CPU to 1200MHz, and changed my GFFX5900 to a GFFX 5200 64bit and kept the EXACT same settings (every thing maxed, texture high, PS1.4 VS2.0) 1024x768 no AA no AF, and Far Cry ran fine. One Gig of ram is the most important thing it seems, not CPU speed.

Mild agnosticism —the view that the existence or nonexistence of God or gods is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable, therefore one will withhold judgment until/if more evidence is available. A weak agnostic would say "I don't know, but maybe you do."
