Cool !!WOW!! farcry graphics

the weekend i got the frycry game WOW the game is very good but the graphics r out of this world!!! why did the game put all my graphics on medium
i tryed very high and it's working fine no slow down or nothing but the temps r holding around 46c-3200xp 57c-fx5950ultra. i think it should of been made a 18 plus age so there could have more adult stuff that would been cool. but how much higher can they go with the graphics!!! all i hope is more roll playing games for us adults would be very good!!!!!

you should see it with HDR enabled, it makes the standard graphics look flat and pale but it's still a bit slow, even on a top end 6800 ultra

I'm currently playing this g8 game again with my 6800 Ultra 256mb and I have no complaints at all about image quality or performance issues. Only Half-Life 2 & Doom3 are actually able to test this card to the max.

The main reason why I'm so pleased with this card is that I payed £300 and I use to have a Radeon 9800SE.

Me to, well I only have the 6800NU now but it's a big step frmo the 9800SE

By the ay I have the same motherboard as you, is your ram actually ddr333 or is that the most the board will run it at?
