    I have a 4890.

    I might have a bit of an issue. Ran FC2 pretty well, though.

    I'm quite sure my PC will run it. I have ordered a HD6870 for FC3. My build (After buying the HD6870) is worth about 1000€. In 4 years I only spent 175€ on upgrades, and it runs everything pretty well, so it's not a too bad price. I guess 1000€ would be roughly £800.

    Rental servers... Of course you *can* rent a server for most games, but most games also contain free server hosting utilities (E.g. Dedicated Server applications.).

    I guess there are so few PC mappers because the game (Far Cry 2) is dying on the PC. It's almost dead right now.

    And trust me, I'll be back moddin' Far Cry 3.

    Why do you guys play on PC? When you are going to get the same game as console players. Do not convince me that PC gaming is better than playing on consoles. I play the PC sometimes, but I have more fun on my PS3 even though it plays most games at 30 FPS.

    I will never touch PC gaming again, because I do not support Microsoft and their crappy products. HEAR THAT MICROSOFT!!!!

    PC gaming is dying due to consoles. A console is an easy pick up and play and will be more popular. People do not want to figure stuff out for them selves. What has happened to Humanity? We have become so narrow minded and stupid as a society? I'm sorry I'm like the Lazlow of this Forum ( Radio talk show host off of GTA 4). That goes off topic and complains a lot about his problems.

    elitesniper365 sorry I edited your post by accident (I thought I had clicked reply but I must have got edit by mistake) - Luckily I managed to go back and get your reply, I posted it below with my reply (sorry about that)

    I'm not trolling. If I were, you would know that. Forum rules? Who even reads those. I love the rule (Sarcasm) that you cannot question a Moderators authority (Actions). That is the most tyrannical (Stupid) rule that I have ever heard of in my life. The rules on this forum are vauge. That a Moderator can have you banned, just from posting something they did not like. Who wrote the rules anyway?

    I got banned from the EA forums for yelling at ex-military vets about the war in Iraq. I will not ever post there again. Guess what one of the Mods was in the military .

    Back on topic. I do not want to see a flame war also. I just want to say that I HATE Microsoft and their products. I have Windows Vista for this PC and when I go and try to download something. I get a virus. It goes somewhere into Vista land and I have to try to find it. Why can't somebody make a simple easy to use software that does not get a Virus everytime you do something.

    My Reply

    I was in the Army for 4 years - I had no interest in promotion and I generally prefer to be told rather then telling others, As for Banning - this stuff is not my style the other site where I am part of the admin team I have been over there for about 6 years and have used the ban hammer once, on a guy who joined to spam the forum with links to a wedding clothes store.

    I work with a lot of people who swear by Apple computers, my own PC has a duel boot option where I can boot from Linux or Microsoft XP - My actual PC was purchased with Vista but I had it taken off and replaced with the old XP.

    It would be nice to see everyone get along on here, I have seen all the PC / Console arguments and the 360 v PS3 stuff over the years, I have also brought up a political issue in one of my posts before that I got away with, and recently I was involved with some strong opinions which had me losing it a little - luckily that ended up balancing into a good debate.

    The forum rules are guides - if they were enforced then there would only be a handful of people left on here, we don't want to be looking over our shoulders though - people have a right to their opinions and views - But at the same time we have to have a balance - the goal is a place where we can all post happily and to help others and get along no matter which platform we use to play the game.

    Sure with mouse & keyboard you can aim more fast and precise than a stick..

    I'm sure that my current PC won't be able to run FarCry3 on the top settings but I'm not going to upgrade it because I will buy a new computer soon.


    I prefer to play with keyboard and mouse and when I try to play with others gaming controllers I feel at a disadvantage.


    I purchased FarCry3 because I enjoyed a lot playing FarCry2's singleplayer and also because I have seen many changes in its online gaming.
    A more frenetic online gaming, accompanied with FarCry's map editor, would give a great experience of gaming.

    The viruses are not Microsoft's fault. Get a proper antivirus program and you'll be fairly safe.

    I should be playing the PC version next week

    Rezzed in the UK on the 6th and 7th of july, has it playable


    Re- recording.. never done it myself.

    but..


    You can use software such as FRAPS - however that can have an impact on the frame rate.. but many use it?


    Best way is a capture card - but again that can impact performance - but you can get decent 1080p ones for about £150 now

    If you can't afford a sufficient rig to record with FRAPS you can set a camera on a tripod in front of the monitor (make sure there are no reflections) and record the audio with Audacity and then stick the two streams together.
