,
This is funny stuff- I could quote all of the outtakes from this thread that have brought a tear to my eye, but nobody really wants to go through all of this again, do they?
What ever happened to the poor soul that began this thread? I wonder if all he needed to do was lower a couple of settings in his game and spare us all of this agony.

-suggestion, drop the 5900 in a modern dual-channel motherboard and then try those kinds of settings?
Actually dual channel pc2700 doesn't offer even twice the bandwidth off PC800(which was a dual channel config itself). DC pc2700 offers 5.4 GB/s DC PC800 offers 3.2 GB/s. While the extra bandwidth will help, it's doubtful that "only" 3.2 GB/s will be the the below the threshold where you get "acceptable" performance.

The truth is... people are forgetting some details...

1) The Ultra High setting enables 2.0 shaders... however on FXs ONLY, 1.1 will be used.

2) The specs used to convey the original argument really doesn't hold. You're using an extremely high res on such a new game w/the best settings on a system that REALLY cannot hold on its own unless you lower the res a couple of notches (say 1024x768 or so).. The system seems to be limited to the cpu/fsb...

3) It's been reported that when people install the patch, performance goes down... however on a clear reinstall+patch... it runs just like before (the patch)

4) In any given situation, the Radeon 9700+ series will always beat the FX in 2.0 shaders... what is worse is in comparable systems (same specs, just different video cards)... I believe Far Cry runs faster on the Radeon 9700+ (under ultra high settings - shader 2.0 mode) than the FX 5900 (under ultra high settings - FORCED shader 1.1 mode)

Ive came to that conclusion aswhell with the 5900X Series Cards. I have a P4 3+ 800FSB with DDR400 dual channel with the 5950 and i does everything full detail high res on all my games so i can be a processor and FSB issue.

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.

ringu61, shorten your sig by teh end of the day to 10 lines or less or it will be edited by a staff member here... it would also help to add a "[size=X]" at the beginning and a "[/size]" at the end of the sig... replace the "X" with a "1".

Some interesting benchies from a review that came out yesterday comparing FX 5950 to a 9800 XT when run on an FX 64 system.
