My brother has a ATI 9200 128mb. He is getting far cry and keeps going on about the great graphics. But i said to him he wont see those great graphics because of his graphics card. Can you tell him the kinda graphics quality he will see? Thanks. He has a 2.8 P4 with 512mb ram

The graphics will be alright. Probably similar to running HL2 on a GeForce 4. The loading times will be very long, but the game should play alright if you use low settings.

Will low settings still look ok? Thanks. What graphics card do you recommend at a budget to play it good?

It depends... what's your budget? You can get a 6600GT for under £100 now, or a 6200 for even less. The minimum I'd recommend would probably be that 9200 you've got, but it won't look a masterpiece on it. I've got Far Cry but have never tried it on my GeForce 4 computer, but I'm sure it'll work (it plays HL2 and RTW on medium settings).

I have a GeForce FX5200, and the graphics were fine at low settings. I wouldn't waste the money on a graphics card just so you could get them to high. :uhm:

here a quick comparison:

Game all set at very high with water at ultra & 4xaa 8xaf:

Game all set to very low & 0xaa 0xaf: farcry00038ob.jpg

Quite a difference....

I play the game maxed out with high AA and AF and I ran it once at the very lowest settings and it looked crap and felt like it was a 4 yr old game.
