Any game that mainly rests on DX9 should run better on a newer Radeon card. That being said, Far Cry still runs very well on Nvidia FX cards.

Hmm I will try that Owa. I actually had frames from 26-41 outside with that card. Game setting was very high detail all with the 'water fix', NO AA/AF.

These are some large files, 2mb and up, but they show the game on the 4600.

9700pro. I play at medium levels. No AA and no AF. I usually have a average FPS rate of 50. Also the screenies were reduced by 10% so they would load up.

I love this 9700pro so much that I haven't wanted to upgrade the last two generations. This card is by far the best card I've owned. I also put a Zalman heat pipe on it and it is not OCd'

Ok, had to post again as this game is too friggin much.

I finally just decided to run it maxed on details, so I now have everything on Very High, with water on Ultra High, Low AA, and Anisotropic 2. 1024x768x32.

Framerate dips into the 20's now and again, especially in heavy combat or when there are lots of vehicles on screen, but it is worth the visuals, I think. Sound quality at High, 5.1, all effects.

Unbelievable. I am blown away.

I decided to up the detail to medium high and it only gave almost a 7 point average hit in frame rate. Man I love this game.

UDawg, you should put your environmental quality up to high, as the addition of all the grass in the outdoors area makes it very cool, and there's hardly a hit at all performance wise. Nice screens, btw.

When I get into battles the fps drop big time at the higher settings. So I pull back on the environment


EDITE:

Ok, now I'm sad. I finished the game. The last two Areas are NUTS! NUTS! I tell ya. So much action going on.

This is my reaction to the shear joy the Crytek engine has brought me.
