All my other games are having porportionatly the same problems. When I got this new card, I was expecting something a good deal faster than this, especially since one of my friends can run that FarCry game at medium quality with a video card worse than mine. Another can run the game at full quality in a 1280 x 1024 resolution with complete smoothness, and he has this exact card. For some reason, I am stuck with such low quality that I can barely play the game, and it still studders and hiccups. It's gotten me killed so much that I'm about ready to give up at this point.
What on earth could be the problem? I reformatted my computer, reinstalled FarCry, and upgraded my drivers to the newest version. The problem became worse...
I can only do AGP 4x, but it shouldn't make it THIS slow. My friends, who know a lot more about this stuff, told my brother that my old GeForce 4 MX 420 card will make FarCry playable at minimum quality. It's too late to ask for it back now, but I was under the impression that my new card would perform a lot better than a GeForce 4...:sad:
Anyone have any ideas on what I can do?
