I am running a system with a Radeon 9250 PCI 256 MB, Pentium 2.2 GHz, 512 MB RAM and I get at least 40 fps at all settings maxed except water (medium), 2xAA and AF at 800x600.
well, now, i have an AMD Athlon64 3500+, 1GB Dual Channel RAM and an nVidia GeForce 6600gt i have everything maxed at 1024x768 and i get about 50-70 fps, its a monster
Alienware computers are good, I have had mine for some time now and not a single error, check http://www.alienware.com for computers. For my second choice I'd have to choose dell, although they are a pretty tad difficult to understand when they let other people from other countrys on helping you. Also when I had my Dell and had a virus it cost me about $50 just to get the system rebooted, they didn't provide me with a reboot disk. But your best bet is Alienware and build it up over the web and enchance your system. Other than that your going to get loads of people here bragging about there thousand dollar system lol.
This is no longer a sticky. I see no need for it to remain at the top of the page...Far Cry has been out long enough so everyone should know what the requirments are to run it. If noit, read the box.
