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.
