If you are looking to upgrade your video card, there are so many options available. We are going to take a look at one of BFG Tech’s top PCI-E cards, the 6800 GT OC. How did it make out in our tests? Is the card worth it, with the next gen on the way?
For Far Cry, I am using the latest patch, 1.31. Once again, I am using two separate resolutions and settings for each. 1024 * 768 is while using 1x AF and 0x AA, while everything else is maxed. 1280 * 1024 is with every max, and 4x AA and 8x AF.
Far Cry is a game that encourages benchmarking, and this is why they have some preset demos. I chose to do runs through the Regulator and Volcano levels.
These are not the most graphically amazing levels in the game, but they still give us a good idea of what to expect. Going from 1024 to 1280 definitely took a bite out of the performance, but the FPS still stayed around 50+FPS. Nothing to complain about here, great results again.
