Okay I got the Crysis pc demo (which kicks ass)

And it runs fine on my computer

P4 3.00 ghz 2 gb RAM Geforce 7600 512 video memory AGP 8x

Hell I can run it on high and get decent 54 fps.

Thing is I want to upgrade my graphics card. Im thinking of getting a Radeon 2600 Pro (seeing as how its the most powerful for AGP)

But I've been reading that people who run ATI cards have been experiencing missing textures, black walls, gray screens...

And I found a good deal on a Radeon 2600 online.

So can someone please reassure me that there are NO compatibility issues for Radeon 2600 Pro?!

ATI cards work fine but the game has been specifically optimized for Nvidia cards, like the 8800 series.

You can run your AGP card with Crysis on High? Wow, some people with high-end PCI-e rigs have trouble doing that.

That new card will be OK, but there are better options in the high-end AGP cards, like X1950 by ATI.

Thanks for the suggestion and info, running Windows Vista so I'll probably get the 2600.

Thanks again.

Im getting a new g-card today so my specs will be: AMD64 3700+ 2X1024 DDR RAM (pc3200) ATI x1950Pro 512mb AGP Windows XP Do you guys think it can run Crysis ok? I know its mediocre system but.. just want to know what I can expect.. lag-hell or smooth-runnin' ? (planning to play with AA and AF off, DX 9 mode ofcourse)

Somewhere around medium, at 1078x768. Don't expect the game to run on high, especially with shaders. Sigh I sooooooo need a upgrade. Damn dell and their BTX cases.
