Thanks! I dunno, all of that is chewing up some RAM and CPU cycles.

So, how does this actually play on your system? Those scores aren't exactly what would be called playable on those 2 tests...

Hey Saz, not to nitpick...but I never do reviews with all that kind of crap running in the background...whenever you get a chance could you run this again with only Far Cry running?

I know... I don't bench like that either normally BUT I have a coupla BIG torrents coming down and I didn't wanna disconnect (only one seed for both )

I'll run it again in a coupla days..

the rest of the stuff was running so I could keep up with stuff... honestly speaking I don't think there was that much of a drop-off though I don't doubt it did indeed affect the performance

/Me still wonders how this is running if those benchies are indicative... If this is typical of game play, I'd pass on the game prior to an upgrade

Is this as unplayable with a r3xx as these scores indicate?

k, thx Them benchies were getting me to thinking. Lets just say I was browsing around the store of late, but wasn't sure on the current gen of games and my comp.

If your AIW 9700 can't play something, it's a sure bet my Radeon 9600 wouldn't handle it better...

I am actually playing the game at 1280x1024 4xAA and 4xAF everything maxed and it runs pretty damn smooth. I like it

That last demo is kind of weird. It runs faster as **** but shows a small fps. Weird.
