i think at the moment the best card to buy is an x800 xt made by ati. altho personaly i bought the x800 pro and hard modded it to xt specs , for farcry i wouldnt go less than an ati radeon pro 9800. good thing about the 9800 pro too is they have just fallen even further in price and they have good performance in farcry , i used to have one myself and it ran farcry fine on my old athlon xp 3200 under high settings .

Umm you should check out any of the X800,X700 series from ATI and the 6800,6600 Geforce cards are really nice with this game. The 9800 Pro is a bargain right now but I wouldn't say its amazing for this game. I have found that some people have problems playing this game with that card and I don't know why perhaps because they have a bottlenecked system, I don't know but Im not saying its a terrible card its just that, if you have cash and your not wanting to upgrade again, go with something a little bit better. :smokin:

I'm getting a Radeon x850XT for £250 at chumbo.com which to me is a bargin because a x800xt is more expensive at dabs.co.uk. http://www.chumbo.com/Info.aspx?id=241592

What about 6800GT vs. X800 Pro in Far Cry. I thought the 6800GT smashed the X800 in that game.

6800 vs x800 will be debated until the next in line come out, which i would presume would be the x900 vs 6900 but if i was going to pick one id pick the 6800, for farcry, for everything really oh and id think about the X850, but not the X800

I would definatly go for the NVIDIA Cards, GeForce 6800GT or Ultra :bows: . I hate the ati,msn bug. Which makes when anyone send you a message or logs in, you will be able to see trough walls (you won't be able to take advantage of it, it's a disvantage), then it loads for a short while, this is a horrible bug. so if you want to play Q3E or PB games and still be on msn, beware of the ATI :lookaround:
