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?

Far Cry


Far Cry

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.


Stock: 370/1000 – OC: 410/1100

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.
