    I'm trying to figure out what i need to upgrade to make Far Cry run better. I drop a lot of frames when action gets heavy, even at the lowest of almost all settings (only went down to 800x600 though). I am 90% sure its my ram, but its expensive so let me know what you think.

    Pentium 4 2.4GHz
    256 MB of RDram pc-800
    Radeon 9800 Pro 128mb

    Also as a side note, is there anything special about whiping the HD and reinstalling windows with XP versus older versions? I've done it withe everything grom 95 to me, but not xp yet.

    thanks a lot guys.

    Is your P4 a 533 or 800FSB version?
    You could probably double the ram (up to 512, maybe even a gig would be nice) and now adays DDR is better than the RD stuff. (Ex. PC3200 or PC3500+)

    Your videocard should be just fine... But listen, My machine doesn't even run it that grand in any decent resolution so give the game time :P

    P4 2.6C HT (800FSB) | Corsair XMS PC3500C2PT 512Mb | Albatron GeForce FX5900 128Mb (5950Ultra Bios Flash)
    Abit IC7-Max 3 OTES | P4 2.6C @ 3.25Ghz | 512Mb Corsair XMS PC3500C2PT | Albatron GF FX5900PV 128Mb (5950U Bios Mod)

    Next Upgrade : 1Gb Corsair XMS TWINX PC3200XLPRO

    yeah my PC also struggles and i got a good setup. the final should be optomized much better. the MP beta runs fine on my comp, AA and AF work a treat, but the SP demo is poor.

    This game uses a heavy lovel of detai engine.

    Multi-player is going to have way less physics and details so it would run better than single player.
