Man I love this game. I really wanted to wait and build a new machine for Half Life 2.
But man! I have been bitten by the Far Cry BUG!
Current system specs :
Athlon 1.4GHZ on a ABIT KG7-RAID (AMD-761 Chipset) 1024MB DDR RAM
Adaptec 29160 SCSI Controller with Cheetah X15 18.4G Ultra-160-SCSI
Maxtor DiamondMax 7200rpm 40G ATA-100
ATI Radeon 9800 PRO 128MB, Catalyst 4.4
Sound Blaster Audigy Gamer
Major slow downs with more then a few guys on the screen at one time. I guess my CPU just can't handle it. Running 1280x1024 85HZ with all the settings set to medium, EXCEPT water quality which is set to SUPER HIGH.
New system now being put together JUST FOR THIS GAME :
Pentium 4 3.4GHZ on a ABIT IC7-MAX-3.
Corsair TWIN-X PLATINUM 2048MB RAM.
Adaptec 39320-R SCSI Controller with DUAL 73.4GB Ultra-320 CHEETAH X-15's.
Maxtor Serial ATA 160GB 7200rpm BACKUP DRIVE.
ATI Radeon 9800 PRO, 128MB, Catalyst 4.4.
Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Gamer.
Here is a photo, haven't started working on it yet, still waiting for parts.
Can't wait to get this puppy together, crack open a 12-pack and play with the speakers CRANKED!
